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.

Remote working has become mainstream with the continued presence of COVID-19. While many people have welcomed the new normal of working from home, others miss the separation of spaces, as many corporate offices have remained closed since March. Without the daily obligation to go into the office, professionals have the ability to travel more freely. Hotels across the country are creating “work from hotel” deals–a play on “work from home”–so people can explore new places while still fitting in their 9 to 5.  

 

Due to COVID-19, non-essential travel was, or has been, banned for months. Long anticipated trips and in-person gatherings were canceled and people have adjusted to the new normal: staying at home and meeting over Zoom. However, states have been slowly lifting restrictions, and non-essential travel will soon be happening across the country again. However, some may not be as comfortable with the thought of traveling as they were before the pandemic.  

 

Although several cities are opening up again, many offices are still enforcing work from home policies. As they did when Stay at Home first began, plenty of organizations are still offering webinars with insights on how to tackle the new normal. Gaining new knowledge is a great way to use extra time that might have been spent on a commute. 

Here at M+E, we’ll keep the following list updated, as some webinars are live and some are pre-recorded. Please email lauren.pahmeier@tigeroak.com to add more applicable webinars to the list.
