I say get the wedding insurance. We got ours for about £40 and everything is covered for 2 years. It’s worth it for peace of mind I think.

We have a wedding insurance plan that covers everything it may be worth getting one just to make sure, however this may not include being stored at a friends house so you would need to check this. I am keeping my dress at the boutique where I bought my dress, which I also paid for on top of the insurance plan for there insurance which means if anything happens whilst in the shop it is covered and I can collect my dress the day before the wedding. Your friend may have to take out insurance for your dress to be covered in their house, because you never know, better to be safe right.

@aleachay:  Definitely get wedding insurance. But double-check how long it will insure your dress for! I got mine from Debenhams, which was great, but it only covered my dress for two months prior to the wedding. Fortunately the store I bought it at will keep it for me and it’ll be covered by their insurance.

Apparently you can get it covered by contents insurance, so try that, but I’m not sure if it would have to be with your friend’s insurance if it’s stored at her house, of if you can get the insurance that covers things for out-and-about (like mobile phones, jewellery etc)
