Insuring Your Destination Wedding

It's true that insurance may not be the most exciting purchase you make while planning your wedding, but if you're traveling for a destination wedding to Mexico or elsewhere, it is certainly one of the most important.

Lisa Light, the CEO of DestinationBride.com, a destination wedding planning site, insists that having the foresight to invest in wedding insurance is a necessity. "As a planner I’ve learned to expect the unexpected. What’s life without a few surprises? And why should your wedding be any different? With the wonderful surprises your “big day” has in store for you, there may be one or two that are less-than-wonderful, and completely unforeseen," Light explains 

Here a few scenarios that she encourages brides to consider when deciding whether or not to insure the big day:
  • Sudden severe weather prevents your celebration, or causes many of your guests to cancel.
  • The charming restaurant you chose to host your rehearsal dinner has gone out of business, but not before they cashed your deposit check.
  • One of your vendors or service providers fails to show, but keeps your deposit.
  • A sudden illness or withdrawal of military leave makes it impossible for certain family members to attend.
  • Your darling nephew--the ring bearer--loses the ring while “practicing” his entrance
  • Mid-hug, someone accidentally spills a glass of Merlot down the side of your antique wedding dress.
