Wedding insurance is special insurance coverage for your wedding that protects you from unforeseen circumstances. We are always talking about planning, planning and more planning when it comes to your wedding, but, sometimes things will happen that you just can’t plan in advance. This is where wedding insurance comes in. It gives you peace of mind for the unexpected wedding drama.

Here are some nightmare scenarios that have happened:

What do you do if one of your wedding vendors goes bankrupt a week before your wedding? Or worse, doesn’t show up? What if your photographer never sends you your photos after your wedding? What happens if someone crashes your wedding and steals your gifts? What if the weather is extreme (think hurricane or tornado) and you have to cancel your wedding? What if one of your guests causes damage to your venue or if one of your guests gets seriously hurt at your wedding?

What if, what if, what if! There are so many variables when having such a major event like your wedding. Having wedding insurance can help in these potentially scary situations.

So, now that you are officially freaked out, what should you do about it? Let me introduce you to Markel Event Insurance.

Markel offers event cancellation coverage, which includes protection against lost or damaged wedding gifts. Their coverage also includes protection from other wedding nightmares, such as if a vendor goes bankrupt or just doesn’t show up to your wedding. It covers damaged photography or even if a hurricane causes you to have to cancel or postpone your wedding.

Markel’s policies start as low as $130, and can be purchased up to 14 days prior to your wedding. Markel also offers event liability insurance coverage to help protect you if someone causes property damage to your wedding venue or if someone is injured at your event, for as little as $75.  If you purchase both event cancellation and event liability coverage, you can save up to 15%!

Not convinced yet? Visit Markel Event Insurance or call 1-855-480-9757 to get a quote and learn why you should protect your special day.  With policies starting at $75 (the actual price of your specific policy is based on location, the coverage you choose, and your total wedding budget), it is highly worth it!

Even though we love to plan, there are just some things we can never know about in advance!
