Our Buying guide will help you choose the right wedding insurance.
Wedding insurance provides financial protection in case things don’t go to plan on your big day. This includes covering cancellation if one of the prospective marriage or civil partners or close family members fall ill when it's inappropriate to continue the ceremony and it's not due to a pre-existing medical condition.
Wedding insurance covers you if you have to cancel or postpone the wedding because one of the prospective marriage or civil partners or close family members fall ill and it's inappropriate to continue the ceremony and it's not due to a pre-existing medical condition.
It also protects the following from loss, theft or failure of suppliers:
- wedding gifts
- wedding flowers
- wedding cake
- hired wedding transport
- wedding rings
- wedding outfits
- professional wedding photographs.
John Lewis Wedding Insurance offers six different levels of cover - ranging from £10,000 up to £100,000 - and allows you to upgrade your cover at any time.
Wedding insurance policies do differ. What's important is that the policy fully covers the cost of your wedding. Policies can also cover:
- Getting married abroad: if you're having your wedding abroad, check that you're insured. John Lewis Wedding Insurance covers weddings anywhere in the world - all you have to do is take out Overseas Wedding Cover in addition to our main Wedding Insurance Policy.
- Failure of suppliers: if any of your suppliers, such as caterers or entertainers don’t turn up, you could be covered for the costs and deposits you've already paid (limits do apply). John Lewis Wedding Insurance could also cover the cost of finding replacements.
- Marquees: if you're hiring a marquee, you can cover it against damage or vandalism. John Lewis Wedding Insurance offers the option of cover for marquees or gazebos and also covers you if you want to have your wedding at home.
