What is event insurance for weddings?

Essentially, our event insurance for weddings covers you if damage has been inflicted upon the venue or any of your guests during your wedding day celebration. In addition to these coverages, you can also add a coverage for host liquor liability insurance. This added alcohol insurance for weddings will cover you in  case of an accident resulting from the serving and consumption of alcohol. 

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 PAL insurance (party, alcohol, liability) or hall rental insurance. This is important because it protects the venue owners against things such as alcohol-related incidents, which can happen at weddings!

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.
