Considering the hurricanes just experienced in many top destination wedding locations through out the Caribbean, it is very important for couples to understand that there are actual wedding insurance policies that can be purchased very reasonably, which will refund you for all money paid to vendors in the case of a cancellation.

This also applies to anywhere you may be hosting your wedding, including areas prone to snow, floods, etc.

These policies include sickness, death in the family, even broken engagements.

Many venues require couples to provide proof of wedding insurance, so not only are the couple covered, but also the vendors and venues are protecting their businesses as well.

Most small business owners cannot afford to refund vast amounts of money in the case of a major natural disaster.

One resource is WedSafe through Nationwide Insurance, below is detailed information from this company.

Why should you buy wedding cancellation insurance? 
No matter how diligent you are or reputable your vendors promise to be, wedding mishaps happen. This could lead to financial loss for you.
