Find the answers to some of the most common questions about Wedding Insurance.

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.

How much does John Lewis Wedding Insurance cost?

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.

What level of Wedding Insurance do I need?

The level of cover will depend on the size, type and cost of your wedding and reception. If you consider each separate cost associated with your wedding, this should help you work out the level of cover you need.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Gives peace of mind Provides a good range of cover options and levels. Seems comprehensive in the items that are covered and the values the cover is for. Is also underwritten by a reputable insurance provider which was important for me. That said, hopefully will not need to use it but gives you peace of mind.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy insurance I bought this insurance a couple of weeks ago to give me a piece of mind. We are getting married abroad, and John Lewis' insurance gave us enough options to make our lives a little safer. The only reason I haven't given it 5 stars yet is that we haven't had to claim so we don't know how quick they are at responding.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quick and easy Bought this service online earlier this month. Was quick and easy. Only problem is I can't seem to create an account from the email so can't access my documents online!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Money taken but no paperwork & site login fails Purchased JL wedding insurance on the 5th of October. The money for the insurance was taken almost immediately but I am yet to receive any paperwork for my policy or gain access to the login page to set up my online account. Two emails to the support site have gone unanswered and still awaiting a call back. All we want is confirmation we are covered for our larger purchases. Purchases for the wedding have now been made but we feel let down by JL's customer service. Wedding insurance should put your mind at rest but JL's poor IT system and lack of response have added stress to planning our big day.
