Of course, there is bad weather and then there is bad weather. UK couples in recent years have had their days disrupted by floods and snowstorms that no amount of careful planning could avoid. (Remember the Heathrow debacle last Christmas? Exactly.) In such cases, a wedding-insurance policy could be your best bet if youre forced to cancel or rearrange the celebration. The key word is adverse, and weather conditions need to be such that they cause major disruptions to travel services and prevent the wedding party and guests from attending, explains Manpreet Chahal of John Lewis Insurance, whose policies begin at £65.62. Every case is different, but if your claim is approved, you could recoup rescheduling costs or be covered for unforeseen expenses you incur to enable the wedding to go ahead for instance, booking alternative transport if flights or trains are cancelled.
And at the other end of the spectrum, dont leave your loved ones out in baking heat without any kind of refreshments. Set up a station with cool, non-alcoholic cocktails to keep your guests hydrated, and pass out travel-size bottles of sun cream. Their dermatologists will thank you!
