Many newly married couples are not adequately covered on home insurance, says Bradford & Bingley.
The MarketPlace at Bradford & Bingley, is urging people who are getting married to check their contents insurance policies.
This way, if anything should go wrong they would have the peace of mind that everything is covered.
An average wedding now costs in the region of 15,000, yet many people forget to check they have adequate cover for high value items.
With many expensive items likely to be in the house soon-to-be married couples need to review their home contents insurance policy to ensure they are adequately covered.
Stephen Hinbest, insurance spokesperson for The MarketPlace, says: "Weddings are expensive enough without the added financial burden of something being stolen or damaged."
He continues: "While it may not be top of your agenda when planning your wedding, it is worth making a quick phone call to check if you have the benefit of extra cover. If you don't, and increasing the level of cover proves too costly, then it may be advisable to change your provider."
The MarketPlace is offering all newly-weds ten per cent extra cover for a month before and a month after the happy event. This also extends to wedding gifts either in the existing property, the new marital home or in transit between these locations.
