Spring means many different things to Texans, but to thousands of couples each year it means just one thing: weddings.

The Westin Galleria Dallas is situated in the Galleria Dallas mixed-use complex and spends most of spring concentrating on bridal luncheons, rehearsal dinners, wedding ceremonies and receptions. The property completed a multimillion dollar renovation in 2016, and event spaces now feature more natural light and soft colors, which can complement a variety of bridal color palettes.

The 448-guest room and 10-suite Westin Galleria Dallas boasts more than 54,000 square feet of recently refurbished indoor and outdoor event space. The venue features 23 event and meeting spaces, including four distinct ballrooms that are ideal for weddings—The Austin Ballroom, The Fort Worth Ballroom, The San Antonio Ballroom and the 11,000-square-foot Dallas Ballroom. Each offers pre-function space; capacities range from 250 guests up to 700 guests.

Privé, the hotel’s new private dining room, is an intimate setting ideal for rehearsal dinners, wedding brunches or bridal luncheons. The space can accommodate up to 60 guests for a seated meal or up to 83 people for a standing reception. Additionally, the award-winning Westin Galleria Dallas culinary team can customize a catering menu to fit nearly any taste or budget.

The hotel is about a 25-minute drive from both the Dallas/Fort Worth Airport and Dallas Love Field Airport. The hotel is adjacent to the Galleria Dallas Shopping Center and within walking distance of numerous restaurants and attractions. Additional property amenities include the outdoor pool and pool deck, which can be customized to accommodate an outdoor event for up to 100 guests. In-house audio/visual equipment and staff is available through PSAV. An extra bonus is the wedding specialist on hand to help with nearly any wedding need.

Daily life has been significantly altered by COVID-19, no matter the industry. Many are working from home, while children stay inside for online schooling. Meetings and events have been hit especially hard, since the essence of the industry is face-to-face interactions. While we continue to self-isolate, plenty of organizations have been offering webinars with insights on how to handle the pandemic—watching webinars is a great way to use that extra time you might have used for your commute to learn something useful.

 

As the spread of the novel coronavirus continues to put immense pressure on the U.S. health care system and the people who keep it running, the American Hotel and Lodging Association is working to connect hotels with health workers who are struggling to find housing.

 

With the onset of the coronavirus pandemic, most people are working from home. Many are social distancing or quarantining with their children, who have transitioned to online classes. Restaurants, bars, coffee shops, offices, stores and so much more have been temporarily shut down in many states, affecting daily life in the most unexpected of ways.
