What’s Covered

Understanding wedding insurance

Dream Wedding Insurance protects your wedding deposits and pre-payments when you need to cancel, reschedule or postpone your wedding due to specified events occurring. Dream Wedding Insurance also protects you if you’re let down by your venue/caterer/florist or other wedding suppliers, if you have to cancel due to injury/sickness/severe weather, if you damage hired equipment, if you face legal liabilities due to property damage or injury and more. Each of these events could leave you in financial hardship… and that’s where wedding insurance comes in. Dream Wedding Insurance gives you comfort that, if certain unfortunate events occur, deposits and pre-payments are protected.

Terms, conditions, limits and exclusions apply. Please refer to the PDS. Coverage is available to Australian residents that are getting married in Australia or Overseas. You can purchase a policy up to the day before the wedding or up to 18 months in advance (note that there is no cover available under Section 1. Cancellation, Postponement and Rescheduling if you purchase your policy less than 30 days before the wedding).
