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.

John Lewis Wedding Insurance offers six different levels of cover with Level 1 costing just £60 for up to £10,000 of protection. Wedding Insurance is a one-off payment, making it a really simple and cost-effective way to protect your wedding.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Some technical problems but great & speedy service I was referred to John Lewis by a friend who had also taken out insurance on their wedding, and though there was a problem with the server when I first tried, a call with a very helpful customer services adviser and a couple days later, I was back online, and booked it in less than 5 minutes!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Waiting for paperwork I purchased Wedding Insurance from the John Lewis Website on 31st August and was informed by the person at the other end to expect the paperwork to follow in the post in approximately 7 to 10 days. On 7th September I received an email from John Lewis asking if I would like to give a short review and rate my experience. I waited for a couple of days before telephoning the number on the website, spoke to Chris, gave my reference number and he was then able to confirm that my details are on the system and correct and the paperwork would arrive shortly. It is now 15th September and I am still waiting for the paperwork !

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Average cover Difficult to purchase I had to phone the number given. My email address was already linked to John Lewis and it would not accept it again for the insurance.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from A time-consuming, painful experience! The wedding insurance product is good value, but one needs to have almost unlimited patience, to get through on the phone and then talk to anyone who knows the product, even though it is detailed on the website. A call back service is offered, but seemingly not put into practice. As friendly as they are, there are not enough staff! If they want to protect their brand, John Lewis should be better than this!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Down to earth Wedding Insurance Wedding Insurance made easy with a simple online process and the documents emailed back to you in a jiffy - hopefully we won't need it, but great peace of mind to know it is in place if the caterer's fail, the marquee falls over or the ushers lose the rings..
