Wedding Insurance

Looking on getting married in Italy? Wedding insurance is just as important as the dress!

Planning a wedding in Italy is a very exciting process for all involved. The venue, the outfits, the food – it can be so much fun to choose every element of your day so it’s your dream wedding! But it’s just as important to make sure your day doesn’t go drastically wrong. Two words – wedding insurance.

What is it?

Wedding insurance covers you in the case of any event that goes wrong, e.g. your wedding dress gets destroyed, your wedding photos come out badly or the caterer goes out of business. Investing in an insurance policy assures you that you will have peace of mind throughout the whole planning process, and on the big day itself.

What exactly is covered?

Every insurance policy is different and can be catered specifically to your wants and needs but most policies cover you for:

  • Cancellation of venues
  • Supplier failures
  • Wedding attire
  • Photographs and video
  • Catering and the wedding cake
  • Personal accident
  • Wedding Cars
  • Wedding Flowers
  • Delayed travel

It’s important to note that certain things are not covered by insurance policies. These things include:

  • Cold feet
  • Cancellation due to financial difficulty
  • Pre-existing conditions that cause cancellation

How much does it cost?

Many insurance policies have various levels of cover, meaning you can decide what is worth the risk and what elements you definitely want to insure you have insurance on. This also means that you can find a policy that fits your budget, and can spend as little or as much as you want! If you needed tomake a claim, most companies charge around £49 for this which isn’t much once you get your compensation!

When should I get it?

As soon as possible! Investing as early as possible will enable your entire planning process to be covered as well, should anything go wrong tomorrow!
