Planning your wedding can be one of the most exciting times of your life! There are so many things to think about; the dress, the florist, the photographer - but what about Wedding Insurance?
Brides and grooms-to-be would be wise to take out a wedding insurance policy, as this could save them money in the long-term and give them peace of mind before the service.
Accidents may happen
Whether it is a case of an overexcited guest spilling wine over the bride's dress or a candle setting fire to a tablecloth, knowing a wedding insurance policy will cover accidents such as these will make any couple feel calmer on their big day.
Sadly, sometimes mishaps do happen and gifts are lost, stolen or damaged. Having insurance, that covers this, gives you peace of mind if something unfortunate does happen.
Wedding gifts can also add thousands to the value of your home overnight, so make sure you’re covered on your home contents insurance too!
A supplier could let you down
Through no fault of its own, your wedding supplier could suffer losses in its business just around the time of your special ceremony, which could turn the event into a disaster.
Anyone who is relying on a company to provide them with specific services must take out an insurance policy, as this will cover the costs of arranging alternative supplies and any deposits you may have put down.
It is an overseas necessity
For anyone who books a holiday abroad, travel insurance is a must-have and it is no different for future husbands and wives who are planning to jet off for their nuptials.
If anything goes wrong and a couple are hundreds of miles away from their loved ones, they can rest assured a wedding insurance policy will ease the stress and most documents can be couriered anywhere in the world should anything happen to the original copies.
It could be the case that either the bride or groom falls victim to circumstances that mean the ceremony has to be cancelled or postponed, such as illness or bereavement.
When this occurs, most insurance policies cover the cost of having to delay or reschedule the wedding, so it is important that couples have something in place to give them one less thing to worry about.
