3 Reasons You NEED Wedding Insurance!

Let’s face it you might not want to hear the 3 reasons you need wedding insurance! You might even ignore the advice or file it away as too expensive or a needless expense.

We can tell you 100% without a doubt, BUY THE WEDDING INSURANCE!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Planning a wedding is a lot of work, and it can be stressful on top of it all!  And the expense? Whew! We haven’t come across anyone yet that said, meh— no big deal!  🙂

The hurricane season stretches from June 1 to November 30, sharply peaking from late August through September. It seems that the past couple of years have named storms occurring earlier and the tropics showing a lot more activity. We don’t have crystal balls—- we can’t be sure—- we can take every precaution to prepare for any eventuality!

Daniel and Kristen, pictured above are one of our favorite couples…………. and they were to have tied the knot on St. Simons Island just after Hurricane Matthew had other ideas. Mother Nature came roaring through and, like she always does, upset the plans in a huge way. The island itself evacuated and there was not a single wedding that happened on the island (or nearby) for a few weeks after. Kristen and Daniel lucked out, while they were not able to have the wedding they planned, thanks to involved and pro-active parents, they moved their wedding outside Atlanta—- 5 hours away. Their wedding was absolutely beautiful, but not as they planned— and they incurred plenty of additional expenses.

Generally wedding/event insurance takes care of:

  • Event liability – helps protect you if someone causes property damage to the venue or someone is injured at your event.
  • Event cancellation – reimburses you for lost deposits and non-refundable amounts if you have to cancel or postpone your event due to unforeseen circumstance.

It can even cover cover non-refundable deposits, lost or stolen gifts, and even injuries or damage during your wedding and the rehearsal.

3. When you’re covered from unforseen disaster you AND your vendors know that should something unexpected occur, you’re covered. And trust us, that makes everybody breathe easier!!!

In the photo above, Kristen and Daniel were blissfully unaware that their wedding world would shake upside down……….. and it turned out as well as could be expected for them. They were super lucky in fact!
