WHAT COULD GO WRONG?
So everything is good to go; you’ve found the venue for your marriage ceremony, you’ve found the perfect wedding gown, the bouquet is sorted.
The groomsmen and bridesmaids have all been fitted and you’re relieved now that you’ve finally secured the reception venue and the menu. You’ve delegated wisely, everyone knows what they need to do and when. Every single 'I' has been dotted and every 'T' crossed. What could possibly go wrong?
There are so many things that could go wrong on your wedding day, but never fear. Why? I hear you say. The answer is to be prepared. Not like bridezilla or Jeremy Irons' character Scar in Lion King. I’m thinking more along the lines of the Girl Guides motto.
“That's all easier said than done." You might say, but it’s possible. So again you could ask yourself what could possibly go wrong? The list is endless:
The caterers may let you down
The DJ may not turn up.
The venue may not be all it’s cracked up to be
Relatives may fall out
A member of the bridal party may fall ill.
Inclement weather - it might be terrible for your outdoor wedding
You name it, and it’s probably already happened somewhere in the world.
SO HOW CAN YOU BE PREPARED FOR THE MISHAPS?
If you really can't afford any monetary losses brought on by any complications arising from your wedding you should take out wedding Insurance cover. Especially if you are planning an expensive affair.
Make sure you are covered from at least a few days before the wedding and beyond the day itself.
If you get the right insurance you could be covered for vital things such as:
protection against damage to your wedding dress
Vendors not turning up (This should allow you to get back your deposit)
TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE COVER
YOU ALREADY HAVE IN PLACE ELSEWHERE
Use your credit card to pay vendors. Credit Card Payments are covered by section 75 of the Consumer Credit Act. This allows you to claim any losses through your credit card company.
If you have home contents insurance you could speak to your insurance provider regarding extra cover for the wedding.
Are your wedding rings insured or covered by your home contents insurance? If not make steps to amend this.
Did you know some insurance companies will not always pay you all your money if lost, but your insurance company might pay for a whole new wedding on a different day if things do go terribly wrong on your wedding day
As you can see above, you might not be able to stop mishaps taking place on your wedding day, but you could well be able to soften the blow if things should go wrong.
Do you really need everything to go absolutely perfect? I have some good memories from my wedding day that I wouldn't change for the world!
