Wedding Insurance: Do We Need Renters Insurance?


We're getting married in a few months and having a large wedding. I'm anticipating receiving a lot of wedding gifts and I'm worried about how safe they'll be once they're in our apartment. We live in a neighborhood that I love, but some people consider it spotty (our downstairs neighbors recently had their apartment broken into). Is there anything I can do to ensure the safety of my gifts?


Yes! You should absolutely get renter's insurance as soon as you're married. It's usually not terribly expensive, and you'll be protecting your apartment *and* all the new goodies in it not just from theft, but from loss and damages due to any number of natural disasters. Don't delay setting up a policy.

Do You Have to Have a Maid of Honor?

I have three women in mind to ask to be my bridesmaids, but I'm unsure about whether I want to ask any of them to be my maid of honor, or whether I even want one to begin with. Do you have to have a maid of honor?
