Wedding Insurance was certainly not one of the first or even top 100 things i thought about when i was planning my wedding. When i finally did come around to the idea it just seemed like another extra cost, but is it really worth it.
In my opinion for that small extra outlay you have the peace of mind that if something goes wrong you have have it covered.
Although we try to select reliable businesses when planning our big day, things can go wrong, and the unthinkable can become a reality!
What would you do if your venue had a fire or flood weeks before you big day and could no longer hold your wedding reception or even worse if they went bankrupt how would you afford to pay out for everything again?
That’s what the insurance is for, dealing with the worst case scenario and giving you the finances to fix it.
There are lots of companies that can provide you with a suitable cover within your budget and if you are even more savvy, if you purchase it through a cash back site you may even get back the money you spent!! Every penny counts when planning your wedding, I know!!
Here are a few links to get you started
I recently read about a young man who for 6 months took selfies of himself and his girlfriend with ‘will you marry me’ messages in background. She was completely oblivious to it all and told him when he finally proposed to her face to face that she thought it was a project he was working on.
This lead me to think about proposals and what is the best way to pop the question?
A romantic meal followed by a ring placed in a glass of champaign or a dessert of choice, on a birthday with the ring wrapped up in a large box, at Christmas surrounded by family and friends or on the holiday of a lifetime.
I think it all depends on the people involved and what they like to do. It’s a very personal thing proposing, so perhaps do something different rather than the clichés mentioned above. Here are a couple of examples of proposals that we really liked.
Here is a video clip of a friend of mine who proposed to his now wife through the use of a giant TV screen in the middle of a city centre. It certainly was a very big gesture and also very public, I guess he knew the answer would be yes. Here is how it looked!
For another couple I know, the now husband used their much beloved dog to deliver the ring on a beach when they out for one of their usual Sunday walks. She was caught very much by surprise.
All we can say is that every proposal is unique and should certainly be a day to remember.
