Wedding insurance is just like any other insurance…you'll wish you had it, when you needed it. The likelihood of something going wrong on or before your wedding day is minimal, but unfortunately, things do happen. Our industry has experienced wedding dress salons that have gone out of business, with dresses still on order, a DJ that closed his doors right after taking deposits at at a bridal show, and others. Again, most issues are small mishaps that are laughed about later, but some can be disastrous.
One insurance company we recommend is www.wedsafe.com. They have different plans to choose from at a nominal cost. Far more affordable than the loss you might encounter.
A tip from the LA Times Article? Hire an Accredited Wedding Planner! : )
Wedding planners are an additional expense, but the expertise they provide can actually save you money that may surpass that cost. A good wedding planner will know the industry inside and out, and therefore be able to get you the best deals. They also know what is typical when it comes to contracts and can help you keep track of all the details of the big day so you can try to relax.
Your wedding day is likely to be perfect, but just in case something happens, a few simple steps prior will protect your financial and emotional investment. From insurance to contracts to credit cards, thinking ahead will help ensure everything is wonderful no matter what.
