Event Insurance Alleviates Many Wedding Day Worries

Wedding Insurance Alleviates Many Wedding Day WorriesAccording to an American Express report, nearly six million couples are likely to get engaged on Valentine’s Day. If you are among them, Congratulations!

Likely, you will immediately start to envision your Big Day. Weddings are an expensive proposition from venues to caterers and flowers to formals; the financial stakes are very high. The average price of a wedding can exceed $25,000, and unfortunately, circumstances beyond your control may intervene to ruin the best-laid plans. At this cost insuring the day just makes good practical and financial sense. As soon as you set the date and select a venue, you should consider protecting your event with Wedding Insurance.

For example, what if your limo driver doesn’t show up and you have to book another one the morning of the wedding—for three times the price? Or what if the groom’s custom-made tuxedo is lost in airport baggage, and he has to buy a new one the day before the wedding? What if your reception space goes out of business a month before the wedding, and you lose your deposit and have to book another space? These are the types of wedding day financial losses that wedding insurance can help to protect. –The Knot.
