Coverage options for your wedding

We take the worry out of wedding planning.

Every wedding is different. That's why our wedding insurance can be customized to meet your specific needs and budget. For over 10 years, Markel Specialty has been the leader in providing the most complete wedding coverage at an affordable price. Markel offers two distinct coverages to protect your wedding that can be purchased individually or, for the best protection, as a package.

Get complete coverage for your wedding and save!

Save up to 15% by purchasing both wedding liability and wedding cancellation coverage, and rest easy knowing your wedding is protected.

Wedding liability insurance

Markel offers wedding liability insurance, protecting you from incidents such as property damage to the venue or if someone gets injured at your event. The policy covers:

  • The ceremony and reception
  • The rehearsal dinner within 48 hours of the event
  • Set-up and removal within 24 hours of the event

Wedding liability insurance provides the following:

  • Bodily injury and property damage liability – Up to $2 million in coverage can be purchased anytime up to 1 day before your wedding.
  • Host liquor liability insurance – Coverage can be removed if you will not be serving alcohol at your wedding, saving you even more!
  • Primary coverage – If you have a covered claim, your Markel Specialty wedding insurance policy will pay first before any other insurance policy kicks in.
  • Event cancellation add-on – For only $50, you can add $5,000 of event cancellation coverage to your Markel Specialty wedding liability policy.

Guaranteed to meet your venue's insurance requirements—or your money back!
Many venues now require event liability insurance for weddings. Generally, the venue will be named as “additional insured” on the certificate of insurance. We includes this with your policy at no extra cost.

Wedding cancellation insurance

In the event that you have to cancel or postpone your wedding due to an unforeseen circumstance, our wedding cancellation policy covers non-refundable deposits and non-reimbursable expenses. Examples of unforeseen circumstances include:

  • Extreme weather (hurricanes, tropical storm, even an epic snowstorm)
  • Accident or illness of an immediate family member
  • Military deployment
  • Vendor goes out of business

Wedding cancellation protection also covers additional expenses you may incur to avoid cancelling your wedding, and pays for other losses or damages, such as:

  • Lost wedding rings
  • Loss of deposits due to vendor no-shows
  • Lost or damaged wedding gifts
  • Damage to special event attire
  • Lost or damaged photography or videography
  • Last minute changes
  • And more!
