Hurricane season has been active this year, with nine named storms in just two months. With flooding, damage, and cancellations from Hurricane Dorian still fresh in our minds, we wanted to learn more about how couples can protect their wedding investment, so we reached out the wedding insurance experts at Wedding Protector Plan.
Hurricane season runs June 1st through November 30th, which means that weddings taking place almost half of the year are at risk. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) is calling for an active 2020 Atlantic hurricane season with 13 to 19 named storms, of which 6 to 10 could become hurricanes (winds of 74 mph or higher), including 3 to 6 major hurricanes (category 3, 4 or 5; with winds of 111 mph or higher).
So what happens if a hurricane hits, causing your wedding venue to shut down or what if your parents can’t catch a flight to Florida to see you get married or what if your bridal shop is flooded before your wedding date and your dress gets ruined?
There’s wedding insurance for that.
