Reasons To Take Out Wedding Insurance

By Weddingblog2011

Most people take out Home Insurance and Car Insurance policies, but how many buy, or have even heard of, Wedding Insurance?

A relatively new phenomenon, Wedding Insurance is becoming increasingly popular as weddings become increasingly expensive. The average cost of a UK wedding is now almost £20,000, which is a large investment for many couples who are trying to buy a house and start a life together.

The last thing you want is to see all your hard work and hard-earned money go to waste. So what are the benefits of buying Wedding Insurance and what can go wrong?


Traditionally brides are given away by their father, who proudly walks them down the aisle, before entrusting her to his future son-in-law. If your dad has an accident or is taken ill, it’s unthinkable that your wedding could go ahead without him. Wedding Insurance helps you cover the costs incurred in rescheduling your weekend for a future date.


Every tiny detail, from the pageboy’s shoes to the figurines on the cake, has been planned to perfection. If the vintage car company you were using to get to the church on time suddenly files for bankruptcy, they won’t be taking you anywhere. A wedding policy will pay for a replacement vehicle to get you to the ceremony.


The wedding was perfect and everyone had a great time, except one person left a cigarette on the table with the wedding presents and they’ve been completely destroyed. Wedding Insurance will provide you with a lump sum towards replacing your wedding gifts.


You spent hours dodging the rain to get the perfect wedding photos which were beautiful, but someone stole the photographer’s camera and your photos are lost forever. Your wedding cover will cover the costs of reshooting the wedding party, including suit hire if necessary.


It’s unthinkable but if one of your guests is injured at your wedding, you may be taken to court. Wedding Insurance includes public liability insurance so that you can pay potential legal costs.
