Oh we're debating this too!
I want to gt it but the H2B thinks it's a waste of money!
I must look into it properly before we make a decision. We've paid nearly all deposits now though so it we're not covered for any of those what's the point?!
We purchased insurance as one of the first things as well .. just in case!!
Now I don't know whether to go ahead....
Just wondered would this article make you re-think it???
Link above doesn't seem to be working I'll try again

I was all set to get wedding Insurance like you all thought it would be well worth it for the peace of mind!!!
Then I came across this article on another thread.......
We considered it at first and decided not to - we thought about all the insurances we've had and never claimed on, so we decided not to. But am worried now, getting close to the day and at times I'm panicking - didnt realise the economy would get this bad. fingers crossed.
Were not getting married till the start of 2013 and i have got a few insurance companies to send me details of there wedding insurance. I am like you i didnt think id ever get wedding insurance but lately with the way the economy has gone and the amount of businesses going bust i think ill be getting the insurance for peace of mind.
looking at the FAQs on weddinginsurance.ie:
You should purchase our wedding Insurance Policy as soon as you start to incur costs such as placing deposits with a venue, caterer, etc. However, a Blue Insurance Wedding Policy cannot be purchased later than 10 days before your wedding or earlier than 24 months prior to your wedding.
seems a bit grey to me but I would read that as you can buy AFTER you have paid some deposits...
Well that's good becasue I've already paid some deposits!
But according to the article in the independent you are already covered for numerous things whether it be through a contract or consumer law???
I think in the grand scheme of things considering how much we will all be shelling out for the wedding a couple of quid for wedding insurance may be well worth while!!
