Is your wedding venue requiring you to purchase wedding insurance? If so, don’t worry! It’s not that big of a deal actually. Wedding insurance is easy to obtain and is very affordable. As a wedding planner, I get asked about wedding insurance all the time. Couples want to know what it is, what it covers, and how to get it. And I wrote this blog post to explain the ins and outs of wedding insurance. As well as give you some resources to help you the best wedding insurance carrier for your needs.
Types of Wedding Insurance Coverage
There are two main types of wedding insurance coverage: liability insurance and cancellation insurance.
Wedding Liability Insurance
If your venue is requiring you to provide insurance, they are referring to liability insurance. This kind of insurance covers injuries or damages that may occur during your wedding. It can also provide coverage against alcohol-related incidents that may occur on the day of the wedding if you are serving alcohol. A liability policy generally costs under $100, depending on the size of your wedding and the limit of coverage you select.
Wedding Cancelation insurance
This is an optional type of wedding insurance that helps cover the cost of canceling or postponing your wedding. Typically the wedding must be canceled due to unforeseen circumstances like an injury or illness. A cancelation insurance policy can be up to $400, depending on the limit of coverage you select.
These types of wedding insurance policies can be purchased together or separately. And there are many companies out there who offer both types of wedding insurance coverage.
