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.

Join us in celebrating unlimited luxury wedding inspiration! The 2019 WedLuxe Show, "Modern Artisma: Weddings As Art," is taking place THIS Sunday, January 13 in Toronto, Canada.

Below is a sneak peek of what's to come at the 2019 Show and don't forget to buy your ticket in advance and save time at check-in! 

As you step off the elevators onto the 7th floor, our "Mirror, Mirror" Grand Entry welcomes you to the show. Upon entering, you'll be inspired by one of the hottest upcoming wedding trends of 2019: reflective surfaces paired with floral and texture.

Adjacent to the Grand Entry, located in the foyer, is our exclusive Portrait Lounge. Styled with white upon white and layered with luxe props, we're setting the stage for an amazing (and complimentary!) professional portrait session available to each and every guest to remember their experience at the WedLuxe Show.

Located in the Round Room, you'll find The Bubble Bar! Be sure to sample all sorts of yummy bubble-inspired treats and refreshments, all included with admission. We'll have lots of other fun surprises here, too!

The WedLuxe Runway is a show within the show, and will showcase couture gowns and bespoke menswear in an atelier-inspired environment. We are thrilled to have an exclusive showcase of gowns from Ashi Studio, one of the most pre-eminent and influential couture bridal gown designers in the world, gracing the stage this year. Be sure to see the runway show during one of the several time slots.

Late-night snacks are one of our fav wedding treats, so we're amping it up with our luxe version of a Midnight Snack Bar in partnership with Toronto's famed culinary company (and our host presenting partners), Oliver & Bonacini. Go ahead and indulge in complimentary tastings of comfort food at its absolute best!

To celebrate "Living Coral," the newly announced Pantone Color of the Year, we invite you to enjoy a refreshing (non-alcoholic) welcome beverage while you peruse the show.

The acclaimed (and always fun) WedLuxe Gift Bar takes centre stage this year in the Concert Hall. Access to this one-of-a-kind "complimentary shopping experience" is included with every ticket. Selection is first come, first served, though we guarantee goodies for EVERY guest.

See you at the 2019 WedLuxe Show!

Blush and lavender blooms mixed with fresh greenery brought Remi and Emil's secret garden-themed wedding to life! At the request of the groom, OTT floral trees sat on top of the family tables for a majorly eye-catching statement. Overall, this rustic-meets-regal setup was total wedding #goals!

A big book of fairytales inspired Aleksandra and Vladislav’s wedding in Ukraine. Full of greenery and pastel florals, the couple worked with their vendors to create the ultimate rustic-meets-magical forest celebration. We can't get over the majorly #OTT oak tree that was recreated inside the reception venue - talk about showstopping!
