You wouldn't buy a car and not insure it. Why would you spend thousands on a wedding and not want to insure your big day?
Protect yourself and your guests from:
"Slip and fall injury", food borne illness from food you or family prepared, damage to the venue from a guest, "over serving" alcohol, cancellations.. the list goes on and on. You may ask yourself, do you really need insurance? The question to ask is why would you not need insurance. It's rare that an event with lots of people goes off without a hitch particularly when alcohol and food is involved. Compound the situation by adding vendors who are unlicensed and non insured. All venue contracts require that you'll accept responsibility for all injury, damage, negligence, theft etc. One misstep and your fresh beginning will wind up with financial disaster. Don't take these chances! For less than 1.00 per person who attends your event, you can provide peace of mind to each other, your family and your guests. Because insurance is so inexpensive, many venues require it be purchased upon signing the rental contract or soon after. Your venue will let you know up front when it should be purchased and on file. Make a note of the deadline, nearly all venues will cancel your event without providing proof of insurance by a certain time frame. If your contract requires it and you don't provide proof of insurance.. it's considered "Breach Of Contract" and the event could be shut down! Don't take these chances. Insurance is cheap and easy to get. Here is the link that GREYSTONE MILL WEDDINGS AND GATHERINGS approves.
Policies start around 125.00 and mostly depend on the state you'll hold the event in and the number of people who are expected to attend.
Insurance must be purchased and on file listing the venue (Greystone Mill LLC) as additional insured per your contract. You can send or email us a copy but, it has to be on file by the deadline or the system automatically cancels the reservation. It's part of our bookkeeping system which does everything automatically. We even have a handy "UPLOAD" link on the online planner for you to upload through our website. Also, your insurance customer service can email a copy which will save time and worry. Please don't let your contract cancel because of non-payment of proof of insurance! You'll have to fill out new reservation paperwork and your contract may not be the same as when you first booked. Technically if your reservation is cancelled because breach of contract, lack of payment or proof of insurance, you technically do not have a venue booked and we will need to act fast to get the venue booked and secured and back in your name as soon as possible. This has only happened once! We're fortunate in that most couples/brides purchase insurance soon after booking.
