Military wedding insurance would enable you to postpone your wedding and recoup the money you would lose because you are unable to wed at the original time you planned.
As everyone knows, weddings aren't cheap. If you've paid money for a dress, veil, venue and even your honeymoon, military wedding insurance can cover your wedding. Surprises unfortunately happen, but you don't have to risk hard earned money, just because you and your future husband or wife is called to duty. This type of insurance gives a couple peace of mind.
