“As the economy continues to rebound, we’re seeing destination weddings really gaining popularity among a growing number of couples. Whether the couples are opting for a small wedding or one with dozens of guests, we’re making it happen by attending to every detail imaginable,” noted Marcie Boyle, Owner of the St. Louis area Travel Leaders. “Interest is also surging in destination weddings due to cost considerations and the fact that the wedding planning and coordination services our travel agency provides are free – many of our local couples find that by getting married elsewhere, they’re able to reduce the costs they would have incurred by having a big wedding here in St. Louis.”
