Why do I need Wedding Insurance?

Wedding Insurance provides financial protection in case things don’t go to plan on your big day. This can include:

  • Illness: Wedding Insurance could cover you if you have to cancel or postpone your wedding because the prospective wedding or civil partners, close relatives or wedding party fall ill and it isn't due to a pre-existing medical condition.
  • Failure of suppliers: If a supplier goes bust or fails to turn up we could reimburse any irrecoverable deposits you've made.
  • Cancellation Cover: If you have to cancel or rearrange your wedding, you can claim for any deposits or costs that you can't get back when it's inappropriate to continue the ceremony and it isn't due to a pre-existing medical condition.
  • Bad weather: If the weather prevents you or more than 50% of your guests getting to the venue then you could be covered.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Peace of mind All possibilities covered by the insurance for our son's wedding

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Peace of mind insurance. I bought this insurance a few weeks ago to cover my daughters wedding. The level of financial cover varies depending on your perception of risk and you can select appropriately to suit your own circumstances. The cost was the most competitive for the level of cover I wanted and the conditions were concise and best suited for my needs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good wedding insurance Researched several wedding insurance policies. This one had a good choice of cover levels and the price was competitive with comparable policies. It has the John Lewis name behind it, so hopefully service will be good if we need to make a claim.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not enough cover for marquees I had to cancel the cover as I needed £65k cover for marquees and the highest you could give was £50k. Also the documentation took far too long to come through. This is a regulated product so the documentation should come through soon after purchase.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Is claiming as easy as buying?! Really easy to buy. Peace of mind with John Lewis and underwritten by RSA. However, the real test would be if we ever had to claim. Hopefully we won't but it would have been helpful if the reviews shown when purchasing reflected both claims and purchasing reviews. For 'ease of purchase' and 'overall experience' I give 3 stars as I had no claims reviews to go on when deciding (this was same for all companies). On purchasing alone, ie. ignoring claims, then 5 stars. Very helpful on the phone too.
