    I think it's worth looking into. I know that I've purchased travel insurance, just in case. As my wedding package is part of my stay at the resort, I think that should cover it. If you're paying for your trip and the wedding separately, then it's probably a good idea to price wedding insurance as well as travel insurance so that you're fully covered. You never know what could happen, especially with a destination wedding where you have to travel to the venue.
    Loving married life!

      I am planning on doing a free wedding and only paying for extras; these extras don't get charged until we leave the hotel and then it is charged to our room. Therefore, nothing is really paid in advance so in the event something happened and the wedding was cancelled I will have lost nothing (except maybe the $100 deposit for the wedding which would probably be applied to our stay there anyway). Travel insurance should reinburse the cost of travel.

      If wedding insurance reinburses for cost of other things like wedding attire, legal documentation fees, and rings, then maybe it is worth looking into. Otherwise, for me, it doesn't seem that essential.

Since it's still 10 months away, I just want to be prepared as i'm starting to put down deposits etc. Thanks in advance.


        Forgive me for my ignorance...what's wedding insurance -- and who sells it?
        I've booked Heather Parker for my photographer for my April 2, 2011 wedding in Ochi Rios, Jamaica. If anyone is getting married in Jamaica days before or after me and is interested sharing her travel expenses to save few wedding budget bucks, let me know. Take a look at her work for Moon Dance...

          Wedding insurance is basically insurance that reinburses you for your wedding expenses in the event that it has to be cancelled; that way, you don't just lose tens of thousands of dollars. I am not sure who offers it; I would have to do a google search to figure it out.

            Thanks, I'll research it!

              I actually purchased wedding insurance and thankfully didn't need it. Mine would have covered not only the travel aspect, but any costs I put out prior to the wedding - attire, photographer deposit, etc. It also covers if the rings are lost. Or if the dress is lost.

              I got mine through WedSafe. Travelers also has a policy. WedSafe's website is: Wedding Insurance - Cancellation and Liability - WedSafe

              Also, there are two other threads to check out:

                Really Jamaic0619? Well if it covered your wedding and your travel, then maybe that is better than getting travel alone. I shall peruse those links. Thanks a lot :)
