Wedding insurance protects your cake, wedding dress, flowers, venue, wedding rings and other essential elements of your wedding day – but it can also protect your peace of mind as well.
Wedding insurance can ease your stress levels as you organise your wedding day. With so much to organise, it is understandable when couples become stressed at the thought of inviting so many people to celebrate their big day. Yet since wedding insurance can protect important parts of your big day that you have invested in, including the location, wedding attire, food, wedding rings, photography and gifts – this may make you feel more secure in case something goes wrong.
Signs of stress can be quite subtle, so you should be aware of changes in your own mood as well as your partner’s sense of wellbeing. Stress can emerge as:
Feelings of anxiety, nervousness or sadness
Increased dependency on alcohol or other stimulants
Loss of sleep, appetite or sex drive
Feeling tired and listless
If you notice these signals as you plan your big day, then you may be suffering from stress. This level of stress could prevent you from enjoying your wedding day, so it is important that you protect your sense of wellbeing as much as possible.
Stress or anxiety is quite common in everyday life. The mental health charity, Mind, reports that according to the ONS 2000 survey, mixed anxiety and depression is experienced by 9% of adults in Britain. Nearly 5% have experienced general anxiety and depression has been experienced by nearly 3% of the population.1 You are therefore not alone if you have negative or anxious feelings, especially on your wedding day.
If you do feel yourself becoming stressed, you may need to turn to someone else for support. Whilst your partner is usually the first person you talk to, you may find it useful to talk to someone who is not so involved in the proceedings. A friend or family member can be a valuable resource for support, however even they may have personal loyalties which means they cannot give you totally impartial advice.
Wedding insurance is therefore an important investment not only to protect tangible parts of your wedding day such as your wedding rings, clothes or gifts – but it can also help protect your stress levels as well.
