In a world where everything needs to have been done yesterday, adjusted last week and perfected since it’s inception it can be hard on a bride to slow down and “keep things simple” when planning her big day. Sometimes, with as many check lists as one may have, ideas pinned on Pinterest, samples of everything you’ve ever dreamed of tucked neatly away in your wedding binder, you can become overwhelmed and unwittingly turn into a bridezilla. What most people don’t understand is that you are not only planning a celebration of love for you and your significant other, you are also planning a “show” for your guests. Some may not want to think of it as a show but what other kind of production takes as much planning as a movie? The answer is none. A wedding is as big a production as there is next to Hollywood.
I’m not a wedding planner and I’m not a Zen-ologist (it is now a word, you’re welcome) but I am a mom and a makeup artist and organization is part of just about everything one can do in life. The trick is keeping your wits about you so that others can’t get into your head and turn you into something you’re not. In an effort to keep your day one of joy, laughter and feeling like your flying with the love of your life, lets take some time to help you focus. What if there was one thing that can catch the other shoe if/when it drops? What if you didn’t have to worry about vendors cancelling, losing deposits, etc… Well you don’t. Why? Wedding insurance!!
Seems kind of silly to think that some people might not know what this is but on the other hand, who would think to insure their wedding?! Wedding insurance, is just that. It’s an insurance that you can purchase to cover you in the event that something goes drastically wrong with say your honeymoon plans, fire, vendors who don’t follow through, stolen gifts etc.
So with these horrible things in mind (sorry ladies) there is an option that can leave your mind at ease, wedding insurance. This type of insurance prices vary and can cost anywhere from $150 to about $500 (give or take). Now if you’re vendors have insurance, just ask for a copy of it and you won’t have to worry about overlapping the coverage.
You’re going to want to get the insurance as soon as you can. This way you will be covered from the planning on out in case you lose your venue for whatever reason or something horrible like that so that you can get your deposit back.
Just think, one less thing to worry about can actually turn into multiple things not to worry about.
