•With the average UK wedding now costing around £24,000, wedding insurance is a small price to pay to ensure you’re protected for the big day!

•With up to £50,000 of cover, be realistic in what you plan to spend on your wedding as this will determine which policy you purchase.

•It’s always best to buy wedding insurance as soon as you start to pay out for your wedding. However, if you do book services before taking out an insurance policy, these will automatically be covered from the date the insurance is paid for and issued.

•54% of couples purchase wedding insurance 1-2 years in advance of tying the knot…plenty of time for planning!

•Often, your wedding insurance policy will cover you for an overseas wedding however you’ll need to take out separate travel insurance for your honeymoon.

•48% of bride and grooms invite on average between 50-100 guests to their big day. Most insurance policies offer public liability cover in case of injury to your guests.

•The most important insurance considerations for couples getting married are the levels of cancellation cover, protection against the failure of suppliers and cover for the dress.

•Additional cover may be available as an add-on. For example cover on marquees and ceremonial swords can be protected for an additional premium, however they don’t apply to overseas weddings.

•Part of the Military? If the bride or groom is a member of the armed forces and is unexpectedly deployed when your wedding is scheduled to take place, a wedding insurance policy may cover you in case of rearrangement.

•Finally, make sure you thoroughly read the policy documents BEFORE you purchase the insurance. Ensure it provides you the right level of cover for you.
