Wedding Insurance

Weddings are one of the most important events in life—and they're among the most expensive, too, with the average wedding now costing over $26,000. And, that's before the honeymoon, which tends to be another $5,000 all by itself. Given the sheer amount of time, effort, money, and planning that goes into a wedding, it makes sense to protect your funds invested in this event and make sure that unexpected problems don't result in the loss of your entire investment.

Before you begin shopping for wedding insurance, though, there are a few important things to know—like what parts of the event are covered and how liability can come into play.

Special Events Covered by Wedding Insurance

Here are the parts of a wedding that most policies cover:

  • Wedding Venues: While most permanent wedding venues (such as churches) have their own liability coverage, many weddings take place in unusual areas. In fact, about a quarter of all weddings are considered 'destination weddings' and are held in a non-traditional wedding venue. Unfortunately, unforeseen problems like weather, damage to the wedding site, or companies shutting down can make a chosen location inaccessible.
  • No-Shows: Most vendors try to show up to every event, but for whatever reason, there are times when they can't make it. One-time event insurance can reimburse you for any losses suffered as a result of their failure to attend.
  • Injury and Illness: If someone vital to the wedding—say, the bride—comes down ill or injured just before the event, there's a good chance it's going to be postponed until they're feeling better. Wedding insurance can cover these delays.
  • Job and Military Deployment: Similarly, if someone is forced to move (whether they're being deployed overseas as part of the military or simply moving to another city along with their company), delays can occur—and just like with illness and injury, wedding insurance can cover this.

It's important to note that most plans don't cover losses due to either party deciding to cancel the wedding due to a change of heart.

Event Liability Insurance

Weddings should also have basic liability coverage in case anyone is hurt during the event. For example, guests may have allergies to foods or perfumes brought in, or people trying to move a large object as part of the ceremony could trip and fall. The right coverage can ensure that a wedding won't end with the bride and groom facing a lawsuit they'll have to pay out of pocket to defend. Call A.J.

I recently signed up with Nationwide through AJ Gambardella. They agent made the process so easy. She handled everything, including cancelling my old policy. Shortly there after I had a claim; I called my agent and she handled everything. I would recommend AJ Gambardella Associates to everyone! They have professional and knowledgeable staff.

I have had Nationwide insurance for years and never really needed help until recently. The agency did everything they could to assist me with my recent claim.

I have been doing business with Chris and this agency for over 12 years and I am never disappointed. They continue to provide exceptional service, prompt responses, a pleasant attitude and I feel that they always have my best interest at heart. The rates on my auto insurance have always been very good and I get a great value with them.

I was doing some comparison shopping and came in contact with Agent Gene P. I was immediately impressed by his knowledge of the industry, and his ability to relay things to me in understandable terms. Gene took care of everything during the transfer - I did not make a single call to anyone! Not only that, but Gene got me MORE coverage at a LOWER price than I was paying before! If I had known it were that easy to switch, I would've done it a long time ago!
Lano243 From Cheshire, CT
I had the opportunity to work with agent Gene Pendake. What I remember most is his upbeat and enthusiastic attitude. Not only was he knowledgeable and professional but he was completely open and honest with me. He sought to provide me with an appropriate policy based on my needs and informed me of certain options that I didn’t even know were available. I would completely recommend that anyone out there looking for an honest, dependable agent, call Gene Pendake.
