What do I need to know about wedding insurance?
Here are the answers to three of the most frequently asked questions we receive about wedding insurance:
Q: What limits should I purchase on my wedding liability insurance?
A: We recommend that your limits be at least $1,000,000. This type of policy protects you against claims of bodily injury liability and property damage liability that happen during any of your wedding festivities, which can be incredibly expensive if they occur. For an affordable cost, having a policy that protects you at a high level is important.
Q: Do I need to add the venue as an additional insured?
A: YES! This protects the venue if something were to happen. Remember: the person hosting the event (bride and groom usually) are the ones listed as the named insured. The venue is an additional insured. The venue is the only entity that can be added as an “additional insured”.
Q: Do I need to add the waiver of subrogation?
A: YES! This prevents the insurance company from seeking compensation for paid claims from the venue’s insurance policy.
Q: Does this policy cover liquor liability coverage?
A: This depends on if there is a cash bar or not. If alcohol is served or provided to the guests at no charge to the guests, then they are covered by “host liquor liability” on this policy. If there is a cash bar then this is NOT the policy for them and they need to call us directly for a policy that includes an additional liquor liability coverage.
