What is special event insurance?

Special event insurance is designed to provide financial protection if you have to cancel or postpone a gathering due to natural disasters that are outside of your control.

Though most often thought of in relation to weddings, special event insurance can be used to cover a 50th anniversary party, a bar mitzvah, a graduation party or any occasion that might require a significant financial outlay.

What does special event insurance cover?

Special event insurance covers cancellations necessitated by adverse weather and natural disasters, such as hurricanes.

Most policies also provide coverage for cancellation due to the death, illness or serious injury of a key participant in the event, such as the groom or a member of the immediate family. Also, if an officiant (such as a minister or rabbi), or a key vendor (like the caterer, florist or photographer) does not show up, special event insurance allows you to recover some of the costs.

Additional special event insurance riders may include coverage for:

  • Military service – Provides coverage in the event the bride or groom is in the military or active reserves and is suddenly called to duty.
  • Gowns and tuxedos – Provides coverage if your bridal salon goes out of business, or if the clothing is damaged.
  • Honeymoon – Provides coverage if you need to cancel your trip due to illness, bad weather or other circumstances.
  • Professional counseling – Covers treatment of severe emotional stress due to the cancellation or postponement of the event (a doctor’s note will be needed).
  • Liability – Event venues generally have their own liability insurance. If you are holding the event at home, you may want to purchase liability insurance above and beyond what is provided under your homeowners policy.

Before purchasing special event insurance

  • Check to see whether any coverage is already provided through credit cards you might be using, or through your homeowners, auto insurance or any other policies you may already have.
  • Ask the insurance professional you're dealing with what, specifically, is and is not covered by the policy.
  • Ask how much the policy will cost and how much reimbursement you can expect if a loss occurs.
