Comparing wedding insurance

On the surface, many wedding insurance policies can look very similar. But if you take a closer look, there will usually be differences in both the level of cover offered and the things your wedding will actually be covered for.

Things to consider

Wedding insurance provides financial protection in case things don’t go to plan for your big day.

Top FAQs

Yes, anything already booked or paid for will be covered from the purchase date of your policy. Please make sure you have written contracts with all suppliers.

Unfortunately not: we suggest that you take out a separate Travel Insurance policy to be fully covered for your honeymoon. Our Wedding Insurance only covers your wedding and reception.

You have up to 14 days after receiving your policy documents to change your mind and get a full refund, as long as you haven’t already made a claim and your wedding hasn’t taken place.

If you’d like to change your policy and add Overseas Wedding Cover, Marquee Cover or upgrade your existing level of cover, just give us a call on 0845 078 7527.
