Well, just as we were posting the canadian wedding insurance story yesterday, another story on the wire gave us yet another compelling reason to consider it.

Massive rockslides have blocked the Sea-to-Sky highway in BC, effectively cutting Whistler off Vancouver..

As a result many Vancouver brides are faced with the possibility of not being able to make their own wedding!

Whistler is not only a popular winter ski resort but with its lakes and scenic views, it is considered a foremost summer travel and wedding destination. As a result, many couples decide to take their wedding nuptials and celebrations to the famous B.C. town.

Unfortunately, any one traveling to and from Whistler this week has been stranded at either end. The rock slide has closed the one main highway in or out of the resort town for five days, keeping tourists away on the busiest long weekend of the summer for B.C. (B.C. day). Since the only other roadway to Whistler is an eight hour detour, many couples who had booked their wedding at Whistler have opted on keeping the party in Vancouver.

What most couples book and plan months in advance, these couples will have to book with less than 48hours to spare before their intended wedding date!!.

(Oh, did we mention that the money spent on reception venues etc. in Whistler is for the most part non-refundable because the rock slide is an act of nature?)
