Insure your wedding? Say what?

Did you know that you can and should insure your wedding? It was a shock to me too! However, after doing some research, why wouldn’t you? I mean, you are spending just as much, if not more on your wedding day as you would a car and you definitely would insure that! But what does wedding insurance mean? What exactly would you need it for, you ask? Well, let me tell you!

There are two types of insurance, the first is Cancellation insurance.

1. You have to postpone your weddingurl-2

Say two feet of snow falls, I know in Colorado nothing stops for snow, but lets just say it did and your guests couldn’t make it to the wedding. Well, you’ve rented a facility, payed the deposit and hopefully paid the base facility fee by now and Colorado just wasn’t on your side. Insurance is going to cover this for you! Whew…that was a close call.

2. You have to cancel all together

Face it, life happens. We don’t want to think about it and will never expect anything to happen, but life has its ways of surprising you. So you broke up, do you just throw yourself a party or do you get insurance that is going to cover the deposits you lost for the band, flowers, cake, food and photos? Sounds like a no brainer to me!

The next insurance is one that I recommend that everyone at least look into: Liability Insurance.

1. Someone ruined your wedding dress!url-1

Aunt Susie had a little too much wine and went to hug you with a full glass…oops. Now you have to get it cleaned but the underskirt didn’t make it and some of the stains didn’t come out. Well, that’s what insurance is for!

2. There were damages to the venue.

You seriously love your sister and all her kids but sometimes don’t you wish she would actually watch them? The kids wandered off and started doing kid things like pulling all the flowers out of the flower beds, and throwing rocks at the nearby fence and digging in the grass. Now, the venue is going to stick you with a bill to fix those damages! Argh…Or…you have liability insurance and it will all be covered.

3.  The wedding gifts were stolen – what?!

I can’t even imagine this happening but I suppose it does. Say you don’t book at The Gatehouse at The Lionsgate Center where we can lock those gifts up so you don’t have to worry about them, and someone walks away with half your presents. They even took the new kitchen aid that you REALLY wanted! Luckily, you got that insurance and they are going to help you out.lifestyle-boutique-wedding-thief-small-55916

 

Ok, now that you have thought about all the bad things that COULD go wrong on your big day, lets get back to thinking about pink flowers and gorgeous wedding photos!

Upcoming Colorado Wedding at The Lionsgate Center: Duane & Lindsey

Introducing the beautiful Lindsey and Duane

hake_ottema_high-0019 hake_ottema_high-0025

Lindsey and Duane will be tying the knot on June 28th 2013!

Where did it all begin?

“Duane and I met at the hospital that we both currently work at.  I was starting my senior practicum of nursing school in the ICU.  I met Duane my first night while waiting for an open heart patient to return from the operating room.  A group of us were talking about scuba diving while we waited; a hobby Duane and I both have in common.  My preceptor at the time told Duane that when you dive you get to meet pretty girls.  Her sly way of trying to initiate something between the two of us.  Duane and I started of meeting and exchanging small talk that first night.  Following that he seemed to avoid me like the plague.  I had heard from fellow co-workers he wanted to ask me out but never did.  He was being a gentleman and wanted to respect that I was there to learn not to date.  A couple weeks later I finally took it upon myself to call Duane while at work to give him my number since he had yet to ask for it.  A move that embarrassed him and as I am told made him turn bright red in one of his patients rooms.  That night Duane made his way to see me and officially asked for my number.  We went on a few lunch dates following that and then eventually had our official first date.  One that I couldn’t have imagined to go better:  Catch in the park, Cold Stone ice cream, Wii bowling, sushi dinner, and dancing.  A perfect beginning to our story.”

Time well spent

“We have known each other for just under 2 years (about a year and 8 months).  We have been dating for just over a year and a half. ”

Tell us how he proposed!

“We were spending the weekend in Newcastle, Wyoming at his parent’s house.  Duane had planned to take me to Spearfish Canyon, South Dakota to see the waterfalls even though I was feeling sick.  The first stop was Roughlock Falls.  While walking down the trail we actually came across a small wedding ceremony; a site that was fitting considering the events that were to follow.  We continued along the trail to the bottom of the falls.  While enjoying the beautiful site Duane surprised me by getting down on one knee and asking me to marry him.  My was response was “Are you serious?”To which Duane replied “I’m on one knee with a ring… I am pretty serious.”  The obvioius answer was yes.  We celebrated alone for a few moments in front of the falls then made our way back up the trail.  The rest of the day was spent enjoying lunch and site seeing in Spearfish and then making our was back to Newcastle to share the news with family and friends.”

Why did you decide on the Dove House?

“When trying to find a venue we wanted to pick a place that took a lot of the pressure off of us as far as planning and finding vendors.  Lionsgate has definitely accomplished that for us thus far.  The planning process has been really enjoyable and stress free.  We chose the Dove House specifically because we loved the unique, vintage feel of the layout; an area that is cozy yet accommodates a large group of people.  We did not want the typical ballroom type reception.  We are also big dancers and having a designated dance area was definitely a plus for us.  Having a space that also offers and outdoor ceremony site and indoor reception in one location was a plus with all the out of town guests that will be coming.  I am incredibly excited for the big day and can’t wait to see how everything turns out.”
