Why Wedding Insurance is So Important for your Big Day!

For anyone paying for a wedding celebration, you know what a large financial investment it is. Celebrating the beginning of your lives together as a married couple is costly, whether the bride and groom are paying or if the parents are paying. There is a way to protect your financial investment by purchasing wedding insurance. This very important coverage will help lessen the worries of your big day. As any bride will tell you, there is no such thing as a worry-free wedding day, but wedding insurance can help to lessen the burden.

Common venue-related problems include vendors and facilities going out of business before the wedding, flowers not being delivered, no-show photographers and DJ’s not showing up on time or at all to play at the reception. By purchasing wedding insurance, you and your family are protecting not only your wedding day, but also your rehearsal and rehearsal dinner against many unforeseen possible losses.

There are different options available to cover many aspects of your big day. You can purchase coverage for such things as wedding cancellation or postponement, lost deposits, lost or damaged photos and videos and damage to wedding gifts. There’s also coverage available for wedding attire and jewelry, including the wedding bands, among other items.

Some features and benefits of cancellation or postponement coverage is protection against extreme situations that may arise, such as severe weather, accidents or sudden illness. There is also coverage if the wedding has to be cancelled or postponed due to no-show vendors or damage to the brides wedding gown. Another instance where postponement or cancellation coverage would come in handy is if the bride or groom is in the military and their leave is denied after the wedding has been planned. Don’t forget that many guests will probably come from out of town, so if there is a public transportation shutdown and they can’t get there, the policy would help cover expenses not recoverable otherwise.

As for liability coverage, instances may arise where you could be held responsible for alcohol-related incidents. This could involve bodily injury or property damage, usually occurring during the reception. Many venues and reception halls require at least the minimum of liability insurance to be covered by the bride and groom and/or the parents who are holding the reception. For this, Liquor Liability Coverage can be purchased for up to $1 million in coverage under some wedding insurance policies.

To determine the amount of coverage you will need to protect your special day, add up the costs of major expenses for the wedding attire, photographer, flowers, music and the reception. This total will give you a good idea of the amount you will need to help protect you from unexpected losses.

Wedding insurance packages are available in most states, including Maryland, Delaware and Virginia. Be sure to protect you and your family’s investment in what will be one of the biggest days of your life. Some wedding insurance policies can be purchased for less than $200.00 a year. Keep in mind, wedding insurance must be purchased at least 14 days prior to the event

Do's and Don'ts of Planning the Perfect Honeymoon

The wedding date has been set, the invitations mailed, the gown fitted, the caterers, band, reception room all arranged. Everything is ready for the most perfect wedding ever; yours. But, in all the hustle and bustle of planning for the wedding itself, many couples tend to neglect what happens right after the wedding; the Honeymoon. Here's how to make sure your Honeymoon is a special as your wedding.

Do: Request a Double or King bed. This may not be as crucial in a hotel but, if you a taking a cruise keep in mind that most cruise ship beds are designed for one person only. If you want a double bed on a cruise make sure your travel agent specifically requests one.

Don't: Book an early morning flight. Are you sure your reception will be over early? And, will you really have all your packing done in advance? If you answered "no" to either of these questions, then do not have your travel agent book you on the first flight of the day.

Don't skimp. This is a special time of your life and, regardless of how little time you may actually spend in your room, make sure that your accomodations are special. Save on the next trip, not this one!.

Do: Allow for "down time". Take time to relax and unwind from the stress and strain of getting married. Don't over-extend and over-plan. Have time to just do nothing and have some time for each of you to have an activity or two separate from your new spouse.

Don't: Go to the wrong place. Be sure that your Honeymoon destination is geared for couples. Avoid places that have singles, families or seniors in mind as their needs tend to be a lot different. (Unless, of course, you are going to the Number 1 Honeymoon destination: Walt Disney World).

Do: Give all inclusive resorts consideration. These resorts, such as Couples in Jamaica are fabulous. Everything is pre-palnned and taken care of, but, if you or your spouse like the idea of spontaneity, perhaps this is not what you want.

Do: Use a travel agent. A good travel agent will help you plan a Honeymoon that is within budget and, more importantly, right for both of you, saving you from worrying about all the little details. After all, you didn't sew you own gown, and you hired caterers to prepare the food, and the printers created your invitations, so why handle your own Honeymoon arrangements? A travel agent is yet another professional, ready to help make your wedding a special event in your life.
