There seems to be insurance for just about anything nowadays, so I was really hoping that I would be able to find an insurance provider that provides wedding insurance to people like me. It is not that I am accident prone or in the habit of having bad things happen to me, but I have seen my share of wedding mishaps. I knew enough from those experiences that I wanted to have some kind of protection if at all possible. I had seen two good friends of mine end up missing out on different aspects of their dream wedding days because they did not have the foresight to get this type of insurance.
To be honest, I would not have had it either, had I not been witness to what happened to them. My one friend had her dress ruined before her walk down the aisle. It was not completely ruined, but it was far from perfect as well. The other friend had a gorgeous cake ordered, and the staff at the reception hall tipped it over before the first wedding guest even arrived. They were able to purchase cupcakes to replace the cake, but it was just not the same thing at all.
I knew that in both of those instances, my friends would have liked to have been able to recoup the money they lost. Neither incident was their own fault, and their weddings turned out to be nice regardless. However, when you spend so much time planning and then spend a lot of money to make it happen, you really do want it to be perfect. That is why I wanted to make sure I had wedding insurance of my own, because I have seen firsthand how just an instant can significantly change an important aspect of one of the most important days in a woman’s life.
