Do I Have To Get Event Insurance?


Yes, a one day wedding insurance policy is required. The purpose of Wedding Liability Insurance is to protect you if you or your event causes damage or injury. Otherwise, you may be personally responsible and nobody wants a marriage to start out with that kind of financial burden. The simple act of putting up lights could cause wall damage or an accidental wine spill could cause your Aunt to take a spill and injure her wrist.
