3 Things to Consider When Comparing Wedding Insurance Policies  

There are some important factors that you should always consider when getting special event insurance for your wedding. 

1) Coverage 

When considering wedding coverage, you want to make sure you are protected from all potentialities. Our product is provided as a Commercial General Liability policy with a $1 million per occurrence and a $2 million aggregate limit. Additionally, it covers damages to rented premises up to $250,000. Typically, this product surpasses the requirements of most venue facilities for special event insurance. Furthermore, our product rate includes naming the location as an Additional Insured party.

2) Deductibles 

As seen with most types of insurance, certain wedding insurance plans include deductibles. While a deductible will generally get you a lower initial cost, you will have to partially pay out of pocket if you wind up filing a claim for your wedding. 

3) Exclusions &  Special Conditions 

It’s always a good idea to read the fine print for exclusions and special conditions in wedding coverage. For example, cancellation coverage won’t work if you get cold feet and cancel, it only protects you from events that happen outside of your control. 

Tailor Coverage to Your Needs & Budget  

One of the most important things to note when shopping for wedding insurance is that there is no “one size fits all” solution. At Event Insurance Now, we recommend you research to find the coverage that matches your needs and budget. 

Obtain Quotes From Several Providers 

Obtaining quotes from multiple providers will give you a strong sense of the current market. If you are having a large wedding with hundreds of guests, it’s a good idea to choose a provider with solid liability insurance. Conversely, a small destination wedding with a sizable overhead investment will require a provider with great cancellation coverage. 

Choose a Reputable Insurer 

To be completely frank, the last concern on most couples’ minds is the possibility of lawsuits related to their wedding. However, in the regrettable circumstance of a cancellation or an injury during your wedding, already difficult situations can escalate when you have to contend with an untrustworthy event insurance provider.
