image for Couples Urged To Take Out Wedding Insurance

Urgent advice has been issued to couples planning their wedding.

The Financial Ombudsman Service is making a national appeal to ensure that insurance is taken out in case something goes wrong and the event is ruined.

For less than 1% of the total cost of the big day, couples can buy peace of mind.

An F.O.S.spokesman launched the campaign on London's South Bank with the chilling words "For the sake of a few extra pounds, don't take any chances. Make sure you take out insurance with a reputable company".

AXEINTHEBACK Insurance are reckoned to have the most comprehensive wedding policy, which will pay out in cases of "emotional distress" caused by any of the following occurring :

- The groom's mother-in-law confessing that her own marriage is just a sham and offering herself to her son-in-law in return for a mortgage free mansion in the suburbs.

- The original band splitting up due to "artistic indifference" and being replaced by a duo whose heroes are Black Lace and The Cheeky Girls.

- The travel company with whom the honeymoon's booked goes bust and the only replacement holidays available are in Cairo, Brisbane or Baghdad.

Make grimbo's day - give this story five thumbs-up (there's no need to register, the thumbs are just down there!)
