I have never heard of this but I am curious what other have to say about this. Is it a venue in pittsburgh?

We had to have liability insurance at the first venue we considered.  As renters, we inquired about adding it to DH’s parents homeowners policy – the quote we got was very reasonable, around $100.

 

I have heard of WedSafe several times.

@Kant: wedSafe is reputable.  My wedding planners actually recommended it to us – it’s a smart thing to invest in because if something happens they help recoup costs.

I have heard of lots of places requiring that type of insurance, so I don’t think it is all that odd.  Honestly, (depending on how much you are spending on the wedding), you should probably considering getting wedding insurance anyways — or at least look into it.  It covers you if any of your vendor’s flake out, or if your venue is damaged.  

A friend of mine (she got married sever years ago) – 2 months before her wedding, her venue in the Poconos was flooded – and would not be ready for at least 6 months.  She ended up having to switch venues….and ended up paying a LOT more than she was planning on.  Just sayin…..

My venue requires insurance, but it is included in our renters insurance, so it doesn’t cost us anything 🙂

@Kant: WedSafe is 100% reliable and I know several brides (including myself) that has used/are using it. The cost of the policy depends on your wedding budget. My wedding planner (been in the business for 20+ years) was the one that recommended WedSafe.

I would highly recommend having insurance as you never know what might happen. It protects from pretty much everything (except change of heart, no really my policy actually states that).

You can add a one day special event rider to your homeowners or renters policy for usually less than $100

So I read an article on TheKnot about wedding insurance covering stolen gifts, etc, but couldn’t find info about that on WedSafe’s website. Does any one know anything about that?

Do you have renters insurance? You might be able to add it to that.

I have never heard of that site…I wouldn’t use it!

I bought my wedding insurance after all the tornados passed through the South a couple months ago though Travelers. I looked at Wedsafe’s policy but Traveler’s was better because they didn’t have any deductibles if a claim needed to be filed. Wedsafe has a $1,000 dedutible for each liability claim and $25 for each other claim.
