Weddings

Getting engaged is easy. Planning and executing the perfect wedding is another story. There’s so much to take care of, from the ceremony and reception, to catering and the music. Planning your wedding day should be one of the most joyful and exciting experiences of your life. St. Louis has the venues and services you need to make that special day absolutely perfect.

Explore St. Louis’ Leisure Travel Sales department is happy to provide brides, grooms, and wedding coordinators with planning assistance. Hotel room block leads, venue leads, and St. Louis Bride magazines can be sent out as a courtesy to you to help you get a head start on organizing your wedding.

Hotel Leads
Contacting each hotel and researching them individually is a heavy task. Contact Explore St. Louis about preparing a hotel lead that lists all of your hotel needs and specifications to be sent to area hotels. The ones that meet your requirements will contact you directly with bid prices. This service is complimentary.

Venue Leads
If you are still unsure of your wedding or reception venue, Explore St. Louis can prepare a venue lead for you. Similar to the hotel lead (above), specifications are sent to our partners and the ones that suit you will contact you directly with their information. This service is complimentary.

St. Louis Bride Magazine
A free copy of St. Louis Bride magazine can be provided to you upon your inquiry. The magazine features real local couples and their event photos, as well as advice for planning a St. Louis Wedding and plenty of inspiration for décor and unique venues in the area.
