Wedding planners are responsible for managing the logistics of couples’ big days, and planners may be held responsible if something goes awry. While a minor mistake may be quickly smoothed over, more major disasters often have undoable consequences. Wedding planner insurance can help wedding planners in Vermont protect themselves from many of the bigger risks that they face.
Wedding planner insurance is specialized commercial insurance that’s designed to meet wedding planners’ needs. So that policies can provide robust coverage, most wedding planner policies are underwritten with multiple coverages bundled together.
Most wedding planners who work in Vermont should consider protecting themselves with wedding planner liability insurance. Wedding planners frequently have limited resources to resolve a lawsuit or claim with, and the cost of lawsuits can be high once legal fees and a settlement are factored in. With wedding planner liability insurance, planners have protection against some potential lawsuits.
The coverages that these policies come with can broadly be divided into wedding planner liability insurance coverages and wedding planner property insurance coverages. The former normally protect against instances where a planner is held responsible for an incident that causes harm in some way, while the latter coverages generally cover assets owned by a planner.

Our business was with the same trusted agent for over 20 years. Mike Bancroft offered to evaluate our policies and see if he could save us some money on both Workmen's Comp and general liability. He did, and in the process even moved us to better coverage. Mike also offers a superb quality of service. Cannot recommend highly enough.
Mike Bancroft has been great to work with. He has assisted with my Business Auto, Tool Coverage, Homeowners and all other types of insurance needs. I wouldn't be surprised if they change their name to Paige, Campbell & Bancroft soon!
Extremely prompt, personable, and professional service! Despite only needing a workers' comp policy for one employee, Paige & Campbell was very receptive and ensured to shop my policy around to ensure I received a great price that was almost half of what another broker quoted me.
Professional liability insurance for wedding planners is a form of errors and omissions coverage (E&O coverage). The coverage broadly protects against a variety of incidents where a professional error has a negative impact on a client. The coverage might apply if a wedding planner:
An insurance agent who’s familiar with wedding planner policies can more fully explain what instances this coverage normally applies to. The agent can also review a specific policy’s coverage to check what sorts of incidents it does and doesn’t include.
Wedding planners generally use their vehicle for work, and such driving normally isn’t covered by a standard personal auto insurance policy. Whether a full-fledged commercial policy is needed, however, usually depends on what options a personal policy affords.
Some personal auto policies can be adapted to cover certain types of work-related driving, perhaps including the driving that a wedding planner does. If an option like this isn’t available, a commercial policy is likely necessary.
Evaluating a personal auto insurance policy’s coverage and determining whether a commercial policy is needed is something that a knowledgeable insurance agent can assist with.
