Prospective brides and grooms have been issued with a wedding insurance warning as the peak months for getting hitched approach.
Engaged couples planning on tying the knot have been warned by NFU Mutual that as well as a traditional wedding insurance policy to protect their investment on the big day, they might also need to look at their cover levels elsewhere.
Only one couple in 12 thinks to check the level of their home contents insurance cover following a wedding, despite many receiving thousands of pounds worth of wedding presents.
"There is a great deal of excitement in the run up to a wedding and naturally, the practicalities of checking your home insurance can sometimes be forgotten," said David Oram, of NFU Mutual.
"It might not be the most romantic way to begin married life, but it should give you peace of mind and guarantee you are covered."
NFU Mutual figures show 43 per cent of newlyweds did not review their home contents insurance after the wedding, with another 32 per cent unable to remember whether they checked their cover levels or not.
Figures from Churchill Home Insurance show ten per cent of newlyweds estimate their wedding presents are worth £3,000 (full story).
