Wedding insurance question

Hi quick question. I am hoping to take out wedding insurance with debenhams or insure for you. If I take it out today and pay the deposit on my venue tomorrow, is that ok? Or is there a sort of cooling off period like there is with pet insurance?


  • Need to check the t&c's... Some even cover deposits that you paid before taking out insurance.
  • Mine covers stuff booked before the insurance (luckily - I'd already booked most of the big things!) so definitely read the T&C. I used because I wasn't really sure what I was doing, so it helped seeing all the options in one place.

    Thank you. Which did you use littlelovenotes? I'm finding it hard to find those specific details in the policy!

    I used debenhams and am pretty sure that they covered the deposits that we had already paid. If I were you I would give them a ring in the morning to check, just to put your mind at ease.

    I used E and L and they cover deposits made before you take out the insurance.  I think most do tbh.

  • I went with InsureForWeddings in the end - can't totally remember the reasons why, but it seemed like a good option!

    Thanks everyone, insure for weddings was who I wanted to go with originally, so think I will go for them.
  • Hi,

    Do E & L definitely cover payments made before the insurance was taken out?
    I just took a policy out with them a week or so ago and read in the Terms that they DONT cover payments made previously..

    Now that I know there are companies out there offering this I'm going to try and cancel my E&L and take out a different one as we had already paid our venue deposit and my dress deposit!

  • We took out E&L but ours DOES NOT cover deposits prior to the insurance policy.  I took out the policy online and then once they emailed over the confirmation (within 30mins) I then went and paid the deposit on the venue the next day.

    MrsW2b13 you will obviously pay more for a policy that covers deposits already paid, and check the cancellation policy for E&L as you may not get much back.

  • Luckily, we've managed to cancel our E&L without losing any money as we did it within 14 days!

    We'd rather pay an extra £20-30 and know the chunk of money we've already spent is covered, thanks for letting me know there are those policies out there!


  • Hi,

    What policy did you go for? I've just booked mine with debenhams but now seen they don't cover what I've already paid.

    I booked with Ecclesiastical after lots of research into it and recommendations.

    They cover deposits already paid.
