While at home weddings have always had an intimate and personal charm, the events of the past year have made them increasingly popular. In most cases, your home insurance policy will cover you should someone get injured on your property, but the terms of your policy likely won’t apply to damages or injuries sustained during an event like a home wedding.

Acquiring specialized event insurance for your home wedding is an essential step towards ensuring you and your guests can enjoy your special day care-free, and here’s why.

Enjoy the Day
Your wedding day is one of the most important days of your life, and you should be able to enjoy it without restrictions. Home wedding insurance is worth it for the peace of mind, as we mentioned, but weddings are also expensive with the average cost in Canada being $30,150, so getting insurance will keep those costs from creeping any higher. Your home wedding insurance will cover everything from the rings to guest injuries, so all you have to worry about is making memories.

As we mentioned, purchasing insurance for your home wedding fills in the gaps that your home insurance doesn’t cover, which allows you to relax and enjoy the day. It’s important to understand the risks you’re taking on if you choose not to get insurance for your special day as well. Home wedding insurance will cover damage to your wedding attire, gifts, photographs, rings, and most importantly, injury to your guests. For example, if one of your guests slips on a spilt beverage at your home wedding, you could be left liable to cover their lost wages if they are unable to work. With home wedding insurance, you likely won’t be held accountable for those costs. In case of a lawsuit, the insurance policy provides a lawyer to defend you and pays judgement costs awarded to your injured guest if you ultimately are found to be liable.
