With the Swine Flu epidemic I am looking at getting Wedding Insurance. I wouldn't want to lose all my deposits and all the other $ I put in.

 

Anyone know of a Canadian Company that offers destination wedding insurance. I have only seen them cover Weddings in Canada.

I don't know if they will accept the certificate for the resort, but my husband's insurance (blue cross blue shield) said they would cover everything for me dating back to my wedding date.

We were procrastinating on adding me to his insurance, and then I found myself in the hospital needing to have my appendix removed. He called while I was in the hospital and that's when they said they would cover everything. They sent us a form to fill out and I had to send them our original marriage license, which they sent back a week or two later.

It took about 2 months to get my original marriage certificates in the mail.

we got married legally a few months before at city hall so i could get on his insurance right away...saved us about $1100 because then i did not have to pay for my own insurance any longer. usually they want the legal docs but ask his HR person exactly what he needs.

We also got wedding insurance because you never know what will happen. We used travelers which is our carrier for car and renters. Here is the link, my policy covers, deposits, lost rings, stolen gifts, no shows, medical emergency cancelations, travel interuptions, and sever weather. I think

We purchased one that will cover all our travel and wedding costs. You specify the amount you have into the trip and the insurance costs are based on that.

 

With everything that has happened over the last few months, this has made us feel better. It was right at $200 each for the insurance. We got $4000 worth of coverage each.

 

It is through Global Benefit Solutions. If you want to talk to someone about it, I can pass your email address on to my friend that sold it to us. Just PM me with your information. For more information and to see the brochure, check out the following link. The information, in PDF form, is at the bottom. We purchased the Patriot Elite T.R.I.P. You can sign up through this page too.

Here is the actual brochure for the one we purchased.

EmenGeeRoxx, did you ever find out about Wedding Insurance in Canada? I came across this as something to ask about when planning the DW but don't know anything about it in Canada. Let me know if you have any info on it.

Thanks!

No luck! I tried many companies in the US and they directed me to their Canadian sister companies and none will do it. They do have wedding insurance but for domestic weddings. None for destination.

One of the travel agents recommended this as a substitute

Manulife is excellent and does cover for cancellation and interruption for a multitude of reasons. There is no deductible and honeymooners get upgrade for free to the Concierge Deluxe Plan for the cost of the Recommended Plan.

Here is the overview and the detailed coverage as well on this linkL:

Thanks. I've been asking around and no one seems to even know what I'm talking about! They keep referring me to regular trip cancellation and medical insurance. I guess we'll have to have faith and hope that everything will be ok.

 

Thanks again and good luck with everything!

We went with WedSafe and we were able to customize it for the amount of money we have paid. For example, FI and I paid for 12 people total to come to the wedding and that was about $15K and we covered vendor services separately against receipts. We choose a policy specifically for Caribbean weddings in August!

 

In all we are covered for up to $35k and we paid just under $300.

    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
