Is Wedding Insurance for You?

If you’re getting married, you might want to check out wedding insurance. It’s not insurance for your entire marriage, but it could make for a less stressful ceremony. Is it for you? Is it even a good idea?


If you’re getting married, you might want to check out wedding insurance. It’s not insurance for your entire marriage, but it could make for a less stressful ceremony. Is it for you? Is it even a good idea?

The most common reasons for wedding cancellations usually involve the bride and/or groom failing to show, something which would not typically be covered by a wedding insurance policy. However, wedding insurance usually covers cancellations due to unforeseen circumstances (a death in the family, dangerous weather, or military service). So, depending on your risk tolerance, job, family and location, wedding insurance may be something to consider… just don’t expect any miracles from these insurance policies.

And read the fine print! Make sure that, if you do choose a wedding insurance policy, you know what it covers and what it doesn’t, so you can pick the policy that best suits your individual risks.

  • I think Fireman’s Fund Insurance Co. will actually write a policy that includes a bride or groom getting cold feet. I’m just curious about who is supposed to suggest purchasing it. “Maybe we should get insured in case I change my mind about marrying you, honey. What do you think?”

    Good luck with that.

    • I guess policies such as the Fireman’s Fund one are bought by parents who are paying for the majority of the wedding and want some financial protection should the couple choose not to go ahead.
