Wedding abroad insurance advice

As everyone knows, weddings often involve considerable monetary expense. For this reason, if you're planning a wedding abroad, taking out a basic travel insurance policy may not be enough to cover all the expenses, should something not go according to plan. Taking out a travel insurance policy with specialised wedding cover included will see that that all the important elements of your wedding are protected, including rings, dresses, wedding gifts, photographs and photography services.

Holiday Extras provide wedding cover when you take out a Gold evel policy. The wedding travel insurance cover includes cover for wedding dresses, suits, shoes, make-up and flowers all bought especially for the bride and groom on their wedding day. You will also receive cover for wedding gifts which are sent before the journey or received during the trip, as well as cover for the bride and groom's wedding rings.

Getting married abroad can be a clever way to save money on a wedding, whilst making the whole occasion a lot more memorable. Dealing with the legal side of things can be a little tricky though. Here are some of the things you'll need to consider, if you're planning to get married abroad.

First of all, bear in mind that the marriage will need to be legally recognised both in the UK and the country in which the marriage is taking place. You'll also need some specific legal documents such as:

  • Full birth certificates
  • Certificate of no impediment
  • Single status declaration
  • Passports with at least 6 months validity left

If you are divorced, you'll also need a 'Decree Absolute', and if you are widowed, you'll need the death certificate of the deceased spouse as well as the marriage certificate from the previous marriage.

Be sure to bring originals of all the necessary documents. You'll also need to be aware that some countries will have a 'minimum residency period' which means you and you're prospective spouse will have had to have been in the country a set number of days before you can go ahead with the wedding.

Additional cover

Alongside our wedding cover, we have further options available so you can customise your policy to include winter sports, cruise and gadget cover.
