We are not suggesting that there are things that definitely have to go wrong – but, in all honesty, if you’re getting married abroad and travel long distance to get you and your guests to the selected destination, wedding insurance is a smart thing to do.
It covers you when something goes awry – a damaged dress or a cancelled flight for example.
Last summer, the bride-to-be had shipped her gown separately to make sure it would get there with no delays. Unfortunately, because of an incorrect entry in the shipping documents, the parcel was blocked at the airport and it was held there for customs clearance. There was a lot of back and forth with the shipping agent and the airport staff and in the end we managed to salvage the precious box, after dozens of phone calls and several trips to the airport in Florence.
We miraculously cleared the parcel the day before the wedding…We were lucky but the entire happening was stressful enough for us to seriously think to check into insurance options.
This is what we found…
Policies range from about USD100 to USD 1,300 and can be purchased online from Wedsafe (wedsafe.com) or Travelers (protectmywedding.com).
Just a thought….though…
We have not yet experienced anything like a “Runaway Bride” situation, but just wondering…Is there any company that offers coverage for change-of-heart counseling?
