Cancellation and Postponement exclusions include the following:

- Deployment or revocation of leave for an honoree or immediate family member who is part of the military if the deployment is to a base less than 150 miles from the event
- Lack of funds (other than caused by unemployment)
- Cancellation or postponement due to the voluntary decision of an honoree (“change of heart”)
- Weather conditions, unless so extreme as to prevent an honoree, honoree’s immediate family or more than 50% of the guests from reaching the event venue, or which renders the event venue unusable or unsafe
- Failure of the photographer or videographer to meet anyone’s expectations of style or quality
- Theft that is not reported to the police in a timely manner
Liability exclusions include the following:
- Bodily injury or property damage caused by an intentional act
- Bodily injury or property damage arising out of the use of any motor vehicle, aircraft, or water craft
- Bodily injury or property damage that does not occur at the wedding venue
- Bodily injury or property damage occurring outside the coverage dates for the wedding
- Workers compensation and/or employment claims
- Claims arising out of a criminal act
- Claims arising out of the use of pyrotechnics, fireworks and/or lasers

What if a guest of honor or immediate family member falls ill or has an accident before my wedding?

eWed Insurance’s wedding cancellation coverage can be purchased up to the day before your wedding. If purchased less than 14 days prior to the wedding date there are exclusions for cancellation or postponement due to severe weather. eWed Wedding Insurance’s wedding liability coverage can be purchased up to one (1) day prior to your wedding date.
