Private Property wedding
Posted: Jul 26, 2009 1:10 AM

We are planning our wedding to be in June of 2010 at our friends family ranch in Central Oregon. We have been asked by the family to come up with a contract of some sort in order to release their name from any liabilities. Does anyone know how I would go about taking care of this?

I believe that is called a hold harmless agreement. You can check office supply stores such as staples, they have boiler plate documents for leases and wills so they may have a hold harmless. But your best option is to contact a lawyer and have one written for you. Try your local bar association and they should be able to direct you to a lawyer that can help you.

dear TO,

I'd go see a lawyer and do it right. The last thing you need is some DIY form, then find out the hard way that it has gaping loopholes.

You alos might contact your own insurance company to see about a one or two day blanket policy. If you do not have your own insurance, then perhaps the homeowners could make the contact (with you, of course, paying the bill for a liability policy).

Typically, wedding insurance covers this type of scenario. You can get both liability and other protection packages for a fairly reasonable price, that way in case something DOES happen, you and your guests are covered. I understand the family's desire to want this document to relieve them of liability, but it is nice to get coverage in case an accident does occur. You don't want your guests having to be without any coverage.

And one more note regarding insurance: when you get the policy, have the owners of the property added as "additional insured". You'll have to ask the owners what name they want it under. If they own the property under a business name, put it under that. If not, just add the name(s) of whoever owns it. Adding them as additional insureds protects them in case somebody decides to sue the owner of the property. It shouldn't cost anything extra.
