Know what's usually covered, including wedding and reception site issues, weather, vendor no-shows, sickness or injury, and military or job conflicts.
Get the right level of coverage
Get the right level of coverage, taking into account the size of your wedding and potential problems. Check with your ceremony and reception site for their personal liability, medical, and other insurance coverage to avoid overlapping policies.
Consider supplemental damage policies
Consider supplemental policies that cover damage to wedding-related items, such as attire, gifts, rings, photographs, and videos. If your photographer or videographer is a no-show, some policies will pay to re-stage the event.
Budget the cost
Budget the cost of insurance into your wedding. Policies range from a few hundred dollars to over one thousand dollars. Choose a policy that's right for you and enjoy the beginning of your new life!
