Change of Heart coverage is an option available under Wedsure’s Cancellation & Postponement Insurance

Wedsure Change of Heart coverage protects those who fund the wedding.
A wedding is a once-in-a-lifetime occasion, with a huge financial and emotional investment. Despite good intentions, occasionally, a bride or a groom gets cold feet and cancels the wedding. When this occurs, any money already spent or incurred on the event is lost.

When Change of Heart would apply
This coverage will repay expenses incurred by an innocent party financier, other than the bride or groom, if the wedding is canceled due to a Change of Heart by the bride or the groom, 365 days or more from the date of the first covered event.

When Change of Heart would not apply
If the wedding is canceled due to a Change of Heart by the bride or the groom, less than 365 days before the date of the first covered event or if the bride or groom are the financiers of the wedding, then Change of Heart coverage will not apply and the policy will not pay.

Wedsure, in partnership with Allianz, is the only wedding insurance policy in the world that offers this unique protection. Limited innocent party Change of Heart coverage is available in most states.

Gifts coverage pays to repair or replace gifts that are lost, stolen or damaged anywhere within the policy territory.

Important Definitions

A Certificate of Insurance details the type of insurance coverage you’ve purchased along with effective and expiration dates and coverage limits, and is one of the most common proof of insurance documents that venues request.

Most facilities require that an event holder/vendor add them as an Additional Insured on a Liability policy. The COI (Certificate of Insurance) provides proof that the facility/event site has been added to the policy as an Additional Insured. In addition, sometimes caterers, officiants, and rental companies also require to be added as additional insured.

Unlimited Additional Insureds can be added free of charge to your Event Liability policy at the time of purchase, or after purchase using RVNA’s online policy management system.

An Admitted Insurance Company is one that is authorized by the State in which it conducts business to sell insurance. These carriers must meet the requirements of financial integrity set by their State and are regulated by the State Department of Insurance.

Every Insurance Company is given a rating so that consumers and agent’s can readily identify the financial strength, solvency and the company’s ability to pay claims. An A+ rating denotes a carrier that meets the highest standards of financial strength and solvency.

As defined by the insurance policy, Bodily Injury is any physical injury, disease, or death that happens to one or more people.

A Certificate of Insurance is a form documenting proof of Liability Insurance. Sometimes referred to as an Acord form or COI it summarizes the benefits of the insurance policy, displays the limits of your policy, and acts as proof of Liability insurance. Most event sites will request this prior to your event date as proof you have the required Liability Insurance to hold the event. We offer Certificates of Liability Insurance with every Liability policy and Additional Insured.
