total event budget – how much you will spend on your venue, caterers, photographers, flowers, special attire, and all the other deposits and purchases you will make for your event. This is the investment you would stand to lose in a worst-case scenario – if you were forced to reschedule your event at the last minute and lost all your non-refundable deposits.

Can I purchase an Event Cancellation / Postponement Insurance Policy without purchasing a Private Event Insurance Liability policy ?
Yes, a Special Event Cancellation / Postponement Insurance Policy can be purchased either alone or together with a Liabilty Policy. As a Special Event Cancellation / Postponement Insurance Policy does not cover the same items and risks covered by a Liability Policy, clients are strongly encouraged to purchase both types of protection. If both policies are purchased at the same time a discount of either 10% or 15% (amount varies by state) will be applied to each policy.
I live in one state but my event is in a different state. Which state should I select to get a Quote?

Will an Event Cancellation / Postponement Insurance Policy provide coverage if the weather forces us to postpone or relocate?
Yes, an Event Cancellation/Postponement Insurance Policy will provide coverage if the weather conditions are extreme enough to prevent the honorees, their immediate families, or the majority of their guests from attending the event, or which renders the building structure itself Unusable or Unsafe (as defined in the policy).
Does a WedSafe Event Cancellation / Postponement Plus Insurance Policy provide any coverage for my honeymoon expenses?
In the unfortunate event your wedding is postponed or cancelled due to a covered condition, any non-recoverable travel and accommodation expenses for your honeymoon would also be covered up to the policy level selected.

Yes, an Event Cancellation / Postponement Insurance Policy will provide coverage if the bride or groom is serving full-time active duty in the armed forces or police or fire departments and must postpone the event due to a previously granted written leave being withdrawn due to circumstances outside of their control (e.g., unforeseen deployment). The activation of a US military reservist, after the purchase of the policy, that requires deployment to more than 150 miles from the event location would also be covered.
What is the refund policy for the WedSafe Event Cancellation / Postponement Insurance Policy?
