PAL Insurance Brokers Canada has insured thousands of weddings across Canada since 1989 and is celebrating their 30th anniversary this year with a brand new website. The easy-to-use platform includes an online application for PAL's Weddinguard insurance, which makes insuring your wedding that much easier.

PAL's Weddinguard program provides three 24-hour periods of Host Liquor Liability coverage, a type of insurance that many wedding venues require couples to obtain for their wedding day. PAL offers four Weddinguard packages, which each include increasing levels of coverage for the following:

  • General Liability including Liquor Liability for three 24-hour periods (For example: rehearsal dinner, ceremony and reception, and gift opening. Events can take place at different locations. Additional days can be purchased.)
  • Bridal attire
  • Rings
  • Wedding photos and video
  • Wedding presents
  • Wedding cake and flowers
  • Wedding stationery
  • Rented property
  • Loss deposit
  • Wedding & Honeymoon cancellation expenses

Why do you need Weddinguard insurance for your wedding?

  • Your wedding venue will likely require you to show proof of liability insurance for your wedding.
  • Backyard or at-home wedding? Your homeowner’s insurance may not cover you if a guest slips and falls
  • Wedding vendors and venues sometimes cancel, fail to show up, or close down without notice.
  • Vendors may not give you a refund if you postpone or cancel.
  • Postponements and cancellations can unfortunately occur if you, your fiancé(e), or anyone in your family falls ill.

Check out PAL’s Facebook page for stories about real-life situations in Canada in which Weddinguard could have helped. You can apply online for PAL’s Weddinguard up to a year in advance of your wedding. Click here to learn more.

Kiana and Amir's ethereal garden wedding brought the outdoors in with plenty of greenery! Hedges of baby's breath accented with roses ran down tablescapes for a major statement. We also can't get enough of the marbled cake with gold accents.

Tina and Reza's luxurious wedding combined the beauty of an outdoor garden ceremony with the glam details of a ballroom reception. The colour scheme of the day was white with a hint of greenery and florals included trailing orchids and full-size cherry blossom trees. According to the bride, "The white flowers showed the purity of our love for each other and the green leaves were a symbol of our growing love and respect for one another."
