Destination wedding travel insurance

Hello guys!

Our wedding is set for end of August 2021 in Italy. I am worried that by that time, covid might still be crashing the party and that us and my family won’t be able to travel there...
So, I am looking for suggestions regarding wedding insurance. It’s something I honestly never heard of people purchasing for weddings here at home. However, I think due to the situation it might be a good idea.
Does anyone know of wedding insurance that covers weddings in destinations? Particularly Italy. Do you think insurance will cover covid relation cancellations since it’s a known problem? We booked our venue in December last year before covid broke out... I think it’s still to early to tell if I should postpone it.
Am I freaking out about this too much?
Thanks Smiley smile
Also, please don’t suggest to have a wedding in Canada instead. We are a mixed couple and one side will have to travel regardless.

    Amelia does have a good point of looking into two insurances that are separated. is a site to help with the information you may be asking about and what is covered under the travellers insurance. Its different is another source I found that covers the same information and what is and isn't covered for protection wise of destination wedding. Check it out and hope it helps to know what to get and if you need to contact a traveller insurance company for your wedding day.

    One thing to keep in mind, no insurance company will pay out for covid related claims as is now a known issue worldwide. But you should still get wedding and travel insurance to safeguard yourselves against other factors that can curtail your wedding and travel plans.

    I think you'd want both wedding and travel insurance.

    If you get to Italy and covid flares up it could be very expensive to get home and insurance could help with that. Or if you're exposed and need to pay to isolate or for a hospital stay that could be covered. I would speak to a travel insurance broker and ask a lot of covid based questions.
