The Event Helper is an online wedding insurance company that offers wedding liability insurance. 

The Event Helper was founded in 2009. The company started out as a one-man operation. Since the company’s inception, it has grown by leaps and bounds. It still strives to offer low-cost, top-notch insurance, with the majority of workdone entirely online within minutes. Although the company remains small and strives to add personal touches to its service, it is insured by Lords of London and the Evanston Insurance Company. 

Nowadays, the cost of an average wedding hovers at around 29,000 and is projected to continue to rise. Many venues are booked a year or more in advance and require extensive deposits or insurance before a reservation can even be made. Having wedding insurance offers peace of mind that if something should go wrong before or during the wedding, there is some coverage to avert financial ruin. Seniors typically find wedding insurance reassuring if they are financing their own, their child’s or their grandchild’s wedding.

The Event Helper is based predominantly on online sales. Their entire process is fully automated online. It features an easy do-it-yourself format where a shopper can effortlessly get a quote and then go on to purchase the insurance. However, many seniors might find it a bit daunting. Some seniors may not be comfortable purchasing a policy online, especially when it comes to buying an item as important as insurance. 

Nonetheless, if the online format is not a step into the world of cyber shopping that a senior is ready to make, they can also call the Event Helper and receive personalized care with a live customer service representative.
