Wedding Insurance for the UK and Overseas Weddings.

Research by Travelex in May 2012 revealed that the average cost of a wedding in Britain is now £18, 500, and that because of this a third of couples have already booked a wedding abroad to save money, meaning around 80,000 Brits will leave the UK to tie the knot over the next 12 months. These costs are due to rise too with the cost of Church of England weddings rising by 40% from January 2013.

With the substantial costs for wedding couples whether they are marrying in the UK or abroad it is important to make sure you have wedding insurance cover and that it covers your requirements.

Wedding insurance covers a variety of events and a good policy should offer you cover you for things like if the venue  is unable to hold the wedding or reception, supplier failure,  dress or dress hire charges if the wedding dress is lost stolen or damaged. Cover should also cover you for against damage or theft of presents, the rings, the wedding cake and flowers as well as your hire vehicles if they do not turn up and marquee cover if you are using one.

It must also cover personal liability as guest injuries such as trips and falls in the event that you are liable could cost you thousands and of cancellation and rearrangement costs. Wedding insurance is very reasonable priced but it is important to get it well in advance of the day as you need to take out a Wedding Insurance policy as soon as you've paid for any part of the wedding so that the deposits you've paid are covered.  Below are details on some leading providers.
