Why is it important that couples have wedding insurance?
Weddings are happy occasions, but sometimes things don’t always go to plan. Adverse weather conditions or illness could lead to postponement, there could be a cancellation, or the chosen venue could go out of business, leaving couples out of pocket. Wedding insurance is a way of making sure couples do not lose money if their wedding day does not go to plan, giving them complete peace of mind.

Upon payment of an additional premium, public liability covers all members of the wedding party if they are held liable for any damage to any person or third party property.
How soon before a wedding would you recommend couples take out wedding insurance?
You should purchase a wedding insurance policy as soon as you make any bookings or pay any deposits towards your wedding. Debenhams policies can be purchased up to 2 years before the wedding date.
If a wedding ceremony and reception are on separate dates, will Debenhams Wedding Insurance cover both?
Yes. Ceremonies and receptions that are up to 21 days apart are covered as standard. If the gap between the ceremony and reception is more than 21 days, then Debenhams will still cover you but you will need to contact our Customer Services team for a quotation on 0844 573 5975. Lines are open Monday to Friday 8am – 8pm and Saturday and Sunday 9am – 1pm.
What should couples look out for when choosing wedding insurance?
Wedding insurance policies vary hugely in terms of the elements of cover provided and so it is always important to check the full details of the policy to ensure that all aspects of your wedding day are covered.
You should spend time calculating the amount of money you are spending on the main components of your wedding including the venue, rings, flowers, cake and transport, as well as the deposits that have to be paid to pre-book. This will help you select the level of wedding insurance that is sufficient to meet your needs, rather than simply purchasing the cheapest wedding insurance cover available.
