Agung Volcano Warnings: What Would an Eruption Mean for Couples Planning to Wed in Bali?

by amelia@hitched

When it comes to planning your wedding, we would always recommend taking out wedding insurance in plenty of time. This is especially important if you’re getting married abroad

Thousands of couples from Australia and New Zealand have been sent into a panic, following warnings that Bali’s Mount Agung may be on the verge of an eruption.

Stuart Catt, Co-Founder and Director of Dream Wedding Insurance said "We've received a number of enquiries over the last week but unfortunately it's just too late for many couples. Our policies can be purchased up to 18 months before the wedding so we urge couples to book their wedding insurance nice and early to avoid these situations." 

Like all wedding insurance provider, Dream Wedding Insurance requires couples to purchase a policy at least 30 days before the wedding. For those tying the knot in Bali in the coming weeks, it’s now a waiting game to see how and if the wedding will be affected. 

With the recent spate of hurricanes, storms and floods around the world, it has never been more important to take out insurance to protect your payments. Most policies include cover against severe wedding conditions, so if you’re unable to get your wedding, you will be reimbursed for all your wedding outlays as well as any additional costs involved in rescheduling.

Of course, severe weather and natural disasters don’t just affect overseas weddings. Australia and New Zealand have seen a fair share of floods, storms and hurricanes too.

It would be absolutely devastating if you had to cancel your wedding day due to a natural disaster, but imagine how awful it would be if you lost all your wedding payments and had to reorganise the whole thing without any of the funding – it is always better to be safe than sorry!
