while planning for a wedding, couples tend to forget to plan for unforeseen circumstances, for example, economic recession facing the nation, pandemic like COVID’19, couples losing their jobs before the wedding, etc.
For couples who plan ahead, there is a safeguard,
WEDDING INSURANCE protects couples’ investment from circumstances beyond their control and reimburses expenses incurred.
Wedding insurance can be seen as a policy that provides financial protection for losses resulting from your wedding ceremony. Just like we all have insurance for our cars, houses, lands, etc, you can ensure your wedding finances too in a like manner.
Wedding insurance covers a problem with the venue, the bride or groom falling ill, the damage of the wedding dress, cake, loss of photographs, video, rings, flowers etc.it covers rescheduling the date and details.
Wedding insurance doesn’t cover cold feet or deliberate cancellation or change of heart.
While wedding insurance is yet to available in Nigeria directly, you can indirectly get insurance coverage by leveraging on smaller details that come with insurance coverage, most vendors offer insurance coverage for the services they render such as the Reception venue, wedding rings, food vendors, photographers, etc.
Another form of wedding insurance in Nigeria can be a contract between the client and the vendors, in this contract terms and conditions are being stated there, it can be reviewed too, this contract serves as an insurance policy for the couple, the can go back to it and make use of it when they find themselves in unforeseen situations.
THE QUESTION IS WHEN IS THE APPROPRIATE TIME TO GET INSURANCE?
You should start thinking of getting insurance once you start making your wedding plans, In case of contracts, you should get the contract signed before committing the vendors.
In case you are halfway done with your wedding plans and you do not have insurance, it’s not too late you can still get one before the big day.
