Your wedding is one of the most important days of your life and many couples invest a great deal of time and money to ensure they have perfect day. With the average cost of a UK wedding now around £14,500, protecting yourself with wedding insurance is more important than ever before.

What is Wedding Insurance?
Wedding insurance (or wedding cancellation insurance as it's sometimes known) is an insurance policy that pays out in the event of your day having to be cancelled or rearranged, or if one of your suppliers should let you down. For a one off payment, it's an easy way of making sure you don't lose large amounts of money if there's an unforeseen problem with something that's covered by the policy.
It can cover the small things like damage to hired outfits or the dry cleaning bill for sorting out that red wine stain on the Bride's dress, right up to cancellation of the whole day.
For example, if the Bride or Groom (or indeed a close relative with some polices) were to fall ill in the run up to the big day, a good policy will reimburse you for any costs up to the policy limit associated with having to re-arrange the day. Whilst it would be devastating should something like that happen, at least you wouldn't have to deal with the financial implications too.
Supplier failure is a concern at the moment too and many policies will cover you should a supplier go out of business and you're unable to recover your deposit.
Some policies will also include public liability cover, or you can add it as an optional extra for around £20. This covers you for any claims made by a third party, for example if a guest injures themselves at the wedding reception.
Unlike car insurance, it's certainly not mandatory to take out wedding insurance, but with so much to worry about before the big day (and with the average cost of a wedding around £14,500!), it's perhaps worth it just for the peace of mind.
