WITH the excitement of dress fittings, table settings and hen and stag parties, many couples are forgetting to protect their big day with adequate wedding insurance.
New figures show that three-quarters of brides-to-be are risking losing thousands of pounds in lost deposits and having the headache of last-minute hitches as companies go under in the recession.
The research showed that only 25 per cent of couples buy wedding insurance.
The wedding insurance policy comparison service comparewedding insurance.org.uk looked at more than 2,000 policies and found that the average cost of a wedding in 2010/11 is £12,541 with the average insurance premium £51.55.
The most common thing claimed for is the bankruptcy or liquidation of the wedding dress supplier while other common claims include loss of wedding photography, marquee damage, adverse weather and death or injury of a family member.
The Compare Wedding Insurance team recommend all brides and grooms-to-be consider cancellation cover to protect their big day and give peace of mind in the run-up to the wedding.
