FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

+- Do I need wedding insurance?

Whether you really need wedding insurance or not comes down to how much is at risk and needs protecting.

In other words, how much will your wedding cost and is any of that spend covered by exisiting arrangements? Remember that if you have paid with a credit card for anything costing between £100 and £30,000 then you should be able to claim your money back from your credit card provider, using section 75 of the Consumer Credit Act. This applies even if just the deposit was put on your card.

Why do I need to insure my wedding?

Weddings can be incredibly expensive events - and you want everything to be perfect. There are lots of factors outside your control that can impact them. So it makes perfect sense to insure your big day. Our wedding policy covers damage to clothing, financial failure of services suppliers, adverse weather, illness AND if any services supplier refuses to provide you a product or service because you are having a same-sex wedding, or for any other reason that is prohibited under the Equalities Act – just about everything we can think of where you might need protection for on your big day.

+-

Are all types of weddings, celebrations, blessings, and renewals of vows covered?

The definition of ‘Wedding’ is a ceremony which creates a contract of marriage legally enforceable within the UK or a civil partnership registration or ceremony". If your celebration is outside of that definition, for example, a blessing as part of a religious ceremony, or a renewal of vows, then please call us. We hope to have a positive response for you within 24 hours.

+-

 How much do weddings cost?

Research by bridal magazine Hitch has crunched down the numbers to see how much weddings cost in 2017.

Brides and grooms are now spending an average of £27,161. That was a dramatic rise of £2000 since 2016. 

Wedding venue hire is naturally the most expensive cost at £4,354, even more than the honeymoon that comes in second at £3,630. The average cost of wedding dresses was £1209.

+- What isn't covered by Wedding Insurance?

You can't make a claim for a situation that you already knew about. Unfortunately that includes medical conditions that you worry could get in the way of your ceremony.

We also don’t cover cold feet if either partner changes their mind or if you decide you cannot afford to go ahead with your plans.

Remember that standard wedding insurance doesn’t cover your honeymoon so you will probably want to take out some travel insurance to cover that which we are pleased to offer here at Emerald.

Many insurers allow you to add extras for expenses such as marquee cover, ceremonial swords cover, public liability cover and weddings overseas. At Emerald our wedding insurance already provides worldwide cover but we include marquee insurance and ceremonial swords as optional extras.

+- Can I take out wedding insurance for a civil partnership ceremony?

Yes, at Emerald Life we include civil partnerships in our wedding insurance. We were also the first UK insurance provider to allow the prefix “Mx” for non-binary and transgender people, or indeed anyone who would rather identify that way.

+-

When should I take out Wedding Insurance?

Within reason, as soon as you choose the date of the special day. If you have already incurred expenses for your wedding, these things will typically be covered from the date you take out your insurance.

+-

What level of cover do I need?

We are unable to give advice as to whether a certain level of cover suits your specific needs. Generally speaking, the larger the wedding and reception, the more you should think about taking out a wedding insurance policy. Emerald has a range of options to suit every occasion. Have a look at what we offer and if you have any questions, please get in touch with one of our team on email or 0330 131 9950.
