Adding Home & Auto Insurance Needs to Your Wedding Checklist

By Matt Peroni
Supervisor, Personal Lines Underwriting
NJM Insurance Group
The time between the engagement and the wedding can be stressful. Saying yes to the ring was easy; saying yes to the dress, not so much. Then there's the ceremony, guest list, reception, honeymoon, where to live - and that's just the beginning of the to-do list before the day you say "I do."

If you're recently engaged, congratulations and best wishes! As you develop your list, be sure not to overlook your home and auto insurance needs. While love and marriage go hand-in-hand, insurance and marriage are equally important for long-term peace of mind.

Once the diamond ring is slipped on the bride-to-be's finger, it should be covered in case of loss, theft, or damage. You can insure that ring with an endorsement on your homeowners or renters policy. If you're the bride and still living at home, ask for a "rider" on your parents' policy. You may need to supply a ring appraisal to your insurance company when asking for a quote.

Whether you're buying a home or condo, or renting an apartment, you'll need protection for your personal possessions. While homeowners policies provide it, many renters mistakenly think their landlord's insurance will compensate them for any personal property losses. However, a landlord's policy only covers structural damage, not the contents within your apartment. So that nice furniture, the flat screen TV, all the wedding gifts? None of it is covered in the event of a fire unless you have a renters insurance policy.

If you and your beloved have auto policies with separate insurance carriers, you could save money by having your cars covered under one policy since most companies offer multi-car discounts, especially if you both have clean driving records. And while you're co-joining, bundling your auto and home/renters insurance with one insurer can offer additional savings on your premium.

Finally, depending on your assets, you might consider getting umbrella insurance. It provides additional liability protection beyond what you have on your auto or home/renters policies in the event you are sued as the result of a car crash, or if someone is injured on your property.

The time between engagement and wedding goes by in the blink of any eye. Before you say "I do," make sure to include your insurance needs on that to-do list.

When I attend chamber events I try to make only one or two new contacts. I feel that it is not the right approach to try to collect as many business cards as you can. It is more productive to have conversations with people and then get their card to schedule a time for a one on one in the future. I always reach out to new contacts either the same day or the next day to schedule a meeting. You shouldn't shy away from meeting someone just because you don't think that you will do business with them. You never know what could arise from a new business relationship.
