that’s strange. in that situation, the venue should already be insured, and you guys pay a damage deposit. (at least from what i’ve seen). i don’t like the feel of that.

All the venues we looked at required the additional liability insurance.  My husband just called his insurance agent and it was included as part of his homeowner’s insurance coverage, we didn’t have to pay any extra, and I think he took care of it all over the phone.  I think it’s pretty common, and pretty easy to take care of.

I have to get the same insurance too.  You can obtain it through your homeowner’s or renter’s insurance carrier or wedsafe.com.

I’ve seen a couple of vendors requiring additional insurance on the venue.  It wasn’t too expensive though and some of them depended on guest count.  I believe I saw a venue whose additional insurance was $2 per head or something to that extent.
