Hi everyone, I hate to be a Debbie Downer, but I am hoping someone on here might have some insights. My FI and I are planning for an early November wedding. While I want to be excited for all this, I’m having such anxiety about it as my father has cancer. At first, I thought having wedding insurance could give us piece of mind, but I’m finding that many don’t cover you if the wedding is postponed due to a family member’s pre-existing condition. The Travelers insurance rep told me “we wouldn’t give you home owners insurance if your house were already burning, it’s like that” real classy, Travelerss 🙁
My question is, has anyone else had to experience this? What did you do? Any advice would be really appreciated!

@MegCo: I don’t have any experience over this but what I have seen on the Bee, is that some people will have a court house wedding, have a small lunch with just immediate family and then plana big celebration for later on.
I am so sorry about your father. Is it in the later stages? My father passed away of lung cancer, but they said he only had a few months, and he ended up living for 5 more years.

While the guy at travelers may have been a bit blunt, he’s right. You really have to decide what is good for you as the insurance probably won’t cover things that were known problems.
You are better off speaking to your father’s doctors about his prognosis. If it’s something like kidney, liver or pancreas, I’d suggest getting married in a month or two as those are usually quick killers.
