Do I need to get event insurance for weddings?

Aside from protecting yourself and giving you peace of mind, one of the main reasons you’ll likely need to purchase special event insurance for your wedding, reception, buck & doe, or bridal shower is because your venue requires it! This means you may receive a wedding cancellation notice from the event venue if you don’t have event insurance.

When securing your perfect space, the venue will often ask you to provide proof of hall rental insurance. This is important because it protects the venue owners against things any unforeseen incidents!

Venue owners require wedding insurance policies because they want to make sure that their space is protected from any damage that can occur throughout the event, and you want to be sure you’re not on the line if Uncle Tony gets a little too rowdy after cocktail hour.

Frequently Asked Questions

Got questions? We have answers!

What is the liability limit for Duuo Event Insurance?

The policy comes with a $5,000,000 (Bodily Injury & Property Damage) liability limit and a $1,000,000 Tenants Legal Liability limit. These limits are standard and cannot be modified.

Where is Duuo Event insurance available?

Duuo is available in all provinces, but not yet available in the territories.

What if my event will take place outside of Canada?

Unfortunately, your event must take place entirely in Canada to be covered.

How can I add additional insureds to my policy after purchase?

Unfortunately, this is not currently possible. The easiest way to accomplish this would be to log into Duuo, cancel your policy, and then create a new one. We’ll instantly refund your original policy premium once you cancel, but depending on your credit card it may take up to 7 days to appear.

To keep things easy, we’d always suggest that you confirm the names of your additional insureds before you make your purchase.

I’m hosting an event at a private residence. What if my guests will be bringing their own alcohol? Or what if I will be serving alcohol, but not selling it? Do I still need a liquor license or permit?

Yes, to purchase Duuo’s Event insurance policy with liquor liability coverage, you must get the proper liquor license from your Province. But that is usually pretty easy to do at your local government liquor store or provincial liquor board!

If you choose not to get a liquor license, you could purchase Duuo’s Event insurance policy without alcohol coverage, but you would not be covered for any incidents related to alcohol. That’s why we always recommend getting the proper liquor license.

Can I cancel my policy after purchase?

Yes, of course! Just ensure you cancel your policy before your event date. If you need to cancel on the day of your event, start a live-chat with one of our licensed insurance reps or send an email to

What do I do if my event isn’t specifically listed?

Email one of our licensed reps at or start a live chat with us. We’ll be happy to help you choose!

Do I require host liquor liability if the venue will be responsible for serving alcohol on our behalf?

We recommend that you still purchase an Event liability policy with host liquor liability coverage as claims could still be advanced against you as the host of the event.

What if I’m not sure how many people are going to attend my event?

We’d recommend giving yourself a buffer by choosing the safer number. Better to pick a higher number than a lower number.
