What is wedding insurance? 

Let’s start with the term we are familiar with- the “insurance” itself. Insurance is an amount of money we pay to a company, and they will pay us back in case something unpleasant happens to us. Wedding insurance works likewise. Couples should invest some money to protect in case any mishaps happen before or during their weddings. Although it mostly does not cover a change of mind, it will cover any mishaps, for example, your celebrants do not show up or one of your family members get sick that causes you to reschedule the wedding date. Whether the wedding insurance company will reimburse you the full expense or some of them, it depends on your agreement with your company. Make sure that you and your partner read every sentence on the agreement.

Classified based on the type of issues, wedding or event insurance has two types of service: liability and cancellation insurance. First, liability includes any mishaps that may happen during your wedding day, for instance, your cake arrives at your venue jumbled and unsavable. You, then, have to order another one. Liability event insurance protects this kind of financial loss. This type of event insurance extends to any alcohol-related accident as well. Second, cancellation wedding insurance protects any financial loss when your wedding should be called off. However, as mentioned above, this safeguard agreement does not include a change of mind.
