Wedding Insurance for your Stowe Vermont wedding

Couples are in love when they a Stowe Wedding Venue for their Vermont Wedding. However, life is full of twists and turns and at times things do not go according to plan. One of the things that both couples and venues for a New England Wedding never want to encounter is the cancellation of a wedding event. But sometimes things happen that are beyond a couple’s control or they simply have a change of heart.

We recently spoke with Steve DePalma of The Barn at Smugglers’ Notch, a Stowe Wedding Venue about the subject of cancellations and his response follows. “Venues never like to see a couple cancel a wedding. This is especially true when events are cancelled within months of the event. As a venue that is high in popularity and demand, couples quite often book years before their event. One things couples may want to consider when signing a contract for a wedding, is the purchase of cancellation insurance.. For a nominal fee couples can be covered in case of unforeseen circumstances or simply a change of heart. “

There are several companies that sell wedding cancellation insurance and depending on the company and coverage, can cover many reasons for cancellation as well as many different aspects of the event. The only company we have seen which covers a “change of heart” is Wedsure. According to their website, quotes take 15 seconds and start for a little as $95. When couples are planning destination weddings, there are many pieces that need to come together to pull off a successful event. Choosing a venue with a reputation for service and responsiveness, such as The Barn at Smugglers’ Notch, is a good start. But consideration of wedding insurance may be an option for you to consider as well.

Destination Stowe Wedding for Boston Couple and guests from around the World

Kriti and Kunal, a Boston couple came to us with a vision and we worked together for over a year to bring it to fruition. Their Stowe Wedding included a Indian Sangeet, which was a unique and colorful event where guests from around the world performed in the main venue, while we set up luxury henna stations and Indian and Mediterranean Food Stations in a large Tent on the great lawn. Although Kriti was a Boston Bride her guests came from all over the world for this destination wedding. The event was so much fun and we loved working with this couple to create this luxury New England Wedding. Enjoy the video below provided by Love Buzz.
