@FoolsintheRain:  This is the place I called : http://www.palcanada.com/en/ 

Someone else recommended them.  I just wanted liability and liquor insurace as required by the venue.  They did try really hard to upsell the whole “wedding insurance” the packages where you insure your cake, photos, dress, etc.  I didn’t want this so just be prepapred to stand your ground on what you want

I’m in Toronto and it was never brought up when I was planning – we did ours without it. But maybe it is a good thing to have? No idea! Just thought I’d let you know that me and two of my friends who recently got married in Ontario didn’t have to get ‘wedding insurance’ for our venues. Not sure if it’s actually a normal thing? If it is, good luck finding some!

@FoolsintheRain:  Ya, alcohol and then another one- I think event liability?  Cant remember off the top of my head. Our venue requires both.  Plus it’s in an old barn so the amount they require is even higher

@lorelai:  Ive had other friends who are required to get it as well.  From what I understand, if it’s an established wedding venue- like a hall or golf course, they typically carry it themselves.  For myself and a few friends who needed to get it, it was because we were renting the venues seperately and then providing everything as a third party (food, rentals, alcohol, etc)

@FoolsintheRain:  Hey! late in the game to this post but I was searching around and was interested in who you ended up going with? The venue we are looking at booking requires it too.

There is a company my venue suggested http://www.easyinsure.ca

I think you have to be in Ontario to use them, but they do event liability for Jack/Jill parties, weddings, and a bunch of other events. I also believve they do alcohol liability as well.
