Common Mishaps Covered by Connecticut Wedding Insurance Common Mishaps Covered by Connecticut Wedding Insurance

According to wedding industry groups, the average Americans spend between $18,000 and $32,000 on their perfect ceremony. Between the venues, attire, entertainment and wedding related services such as photography and catering, the big day can often become a huge financial investment. Many couples spend thousands in non-refundable deposits and reservation fees that, should anything go wrong, are often not recoverable expenses.

Weddings have the potential for many unexpected mishaps, such as poor weather and unexpected cancellations. With the average cost of a wedding now exceeding $29,000, couples are increasingly susceptible to financial devastation should anything about their perfect day goes unexpectedly wrong. Unanticipated costs can arise from a vast array of circumstances. The most common threats to any wedding celebration include:

  • Issues with vendors and reception venues. These mishaps are the most frequent wedding insurance claims filed according to industry reports. Often the most common vendor issues arise when service providers fail to arrive on time or at all. Drivers not showing up, caterers going out of business, and event facilities closing can not only put a damper on the big day, but also prove extremely costly.  Often couples are faced with finding new venues and rebooking dates, creating added expenses to their already strained budgets.
  • Weather events account for many claims, as inclement weather can have a negative impact on any celebration. Sure a little rain never hurt anyone, but a full-fledged storm can be a huge hazard. From lightning threats to flooding and wind conditions natural events can create quite a number of challenges for a wedding celebration.
  • Unexpected illness or injury can also post unexpected risks to a ceremony. Whether the mother of the bride trips on her way into the facility or the groomsmen come down with a stomach bug, any type of illness or injury can cause a wedding to be postponed or rescheduled.
