There has been a growing trend in some countries of professional wedding planners. Although gaining popularity in the UK, it may seem odd for instance to those who are traditionalists and generally do it themselves, but there is one item on the agenda today, that would have been almost unheard of before 1998, wedding insurance!

Weddings are stressful occasions, not just for the bride and groom, but for those who are charged with the job of ensuring everything goes smoothly and without incident.

Fortunately, today, help is at hand in the form of wedding insurance, so that should the worst happen, at least there will not be the catastrophic financial loss that put the icing on the cake `so to speak` in weddings past.

Please see the full comparison table for all levels of cover available from these insurers.

Experience has shown us that it is not always the obvious that can put a spanner in the works. Here are the top five claims:-

  1. Damage to the Wedding Dress, Jewellery or outfits.
  2. Cancellation.
  3. Problems with the venue.
  4. Problems with the suppliers, e.g. cars, caterers.
  5. Damage to photographs.

Each one on their own is a disaster for the couple, but sometimes more than one event can happen.

So if you are the lucky person to be in charge of planning a wedding, make wedding insurance your first port of call.
