Should You Consider Wedding Insurance?

With many Kiwi weddings costing as much as a house deposit, it pays to think about insurance for piece of mind on your special day.

Dream Wedding Insurance is the first wedding insurance provider to offer wedding insurance to New Zealand residents getting married at home or overseas.

Stuart Catt, Co-Founder of Dream Wedding Insurance says “The average cost of a wedding in New Zealand is over $30,000. New Zealand couples can now protect all of the deposits and payments that they make on the lead up to the big day.”

Over the last 12 months alone, thousands of couples around the globe have seen their dream wedding turn into a nightmare. From wedding suppliers going out of business, venues being destroyed by weather, last minute illnesses and injuries, to stolen wedding gifts, destroyed marquees and hefty law suits. It’s no wonder that more and more couples are turning to wedding insurance to protect them from these potential disasters.

When asked why New Zealand couples should consider wedding insurance, Graeme Dean, Co-Founder says “Most couples plan a wedding for at least 12 months. In that time, they hand over thousands of dollars to venues, caterers, florists and a myriad of other wedding suppliers.

If something were to go wrong, wedding insurance reimburses all of your out-of-pocket expenses. We believe that our customers feel much more relaxed on the lead up to the big day, safe in the knowledge that we have them covered against the unexpected.”
