how to get insurance

Most of our clients choose to rent their event coverage from Wedsafe, but you may take out a policy from any accredited private company or your homeowners insurance. Wedsafe insurance coverage costs clients about $100-$175 for a one-day policy. We don't receive this money, it goes to the insurance provider. Proof of coverage forms should be uploaded (in pdf format) when you complete your Event Packet submission form.
