We have just booked our venue a lovely woodland venue and we can do with it what we like. We are about to pay the deposit on some tipis so I am looking at wedding insurance. It looks like you have to pay a premium for additional marquee cover. I was wondering what other people that have booked a tipi wedding have, did you pay the additional marquee cover? Thank you in advance

Yup paid the additional cover think it was an extra £20 or so, the marquee is approximately 25% of our total budget and that's just to hire it so would hate to think what they cost to buy/replace if damaged, don't see the point in only insuring 75% of our wedding.... sods law it would be the marquee that ends up getting damaged and nothing else...

We're having a marquee and went for the additional cover. Understand why it needs to be a separate option as a lot of weddings wouldn't have them, but I resented it tbh. With the cover being based on the total amount that we're spending on the wedding, a sizeable amount of which is going on the marquee, I feel like we're paying for the marquee twice. However, if something goes wrong, they won't cover it, so I just bit the bullet and got the extra cover.

One venue we had an interest in wanted an EXTRA £6k for the marquee. There's no way I wouldn't insure that.
