Wedding Insurance: preparing for your big day
04 Jul 2020
With the average cost of a wedding in parts of the UAE ranging from AED300,000 to AED500,000, it is perhaps no surprise that some couples try to cut costs where they can for their big occasion.
While getting creative with floral bouquets or table linen or indeed being ruthless with the guest list can be considered savvy ways to save, there’s one imperative that should be in every wedding budget but often gets overlooked.
Because as the recent Coronavirus pandemic demonstrates, which saw a spate of cancellations or postponement of nuptials even before the UAE government stopped weddings during the period, wedding insurance is an absolute essential.
What should have been the happiest and most special of days for couples and their families’ lives have been devastated and reduced to fears over refunds or rescheduling.
Perhaps one misconception about wedding insurance is that it is only to cover unforeseen losses arising as a result of the wedding being postponed or cancelled. You can also insure against loss or damage to ceremonial attire such as the all-important wedding dress, gifts, rings, flowers, and many more. What would happen for instance if the wedding photographer can’t make it at the last minute?
Whatever the size or budget of the happy couple’s special day, they can rest assured that the right kind of wedding insurance is available. Mabrouk Wedding Insurance by ADNIC, the first insurance policy of its kind in UAE, has four levels of cover to offer couples peace of mind.
After all, a wedding should be a memorable event, so it is well worth having insurance in case something does go awry.
