Recoup from wedding disasters

Though no bride wants to think about possible wedding disasters, you should. Every couple should consider purchasing a wedding insurance policy to cover any problems that may occur on your wedding day.

Recoup from wedding disastersWhat is wedding insurance?

Wedding insurance policies can recoup all the money you've paid in the event your wedding doesn't take place.


If a fire or other disaster prevents your wedding from taking place, wedding insurance will reimburse what you've paid out of pocket.

Extreme Weather

If you have to reschedule your wedding due to extreme weather, most wedding insurance policies will cover all the costs of rescheduling.


What if your musicians don't show up or your photographer loses you photos? A wedding insurance policy such as Travelers Insurance's Wedding Protector Plan has you covered.

What if you change your mind?

If your groom stands you up, they can't really do anything about it. But pretty much anything else can be covered by a basic wedding insurance plan or supplementary riders.

Even if your wedding is right around the corner, you still have time to get insurance. Check with your insurance agent for the options in your area.
