2010 South Australian Annual Bridal Industry Awards

A big thank you to the 1,173 South Australian brides who cast their ratings for the 505 South Australian Bridal suppliers they used to service their wedding day. This feedback was used to determine the 213 suppliers who qualified as finalists for the 10th South Australian Annual Bridal Industry Awards.

To determine the nominees and finalists, the brides were asked to give scores out of 100 for the quality of product, quality of service, value for money and attitude of the staff of those suppliers who serviced the needs of the bride before, during and after her wedding day.

Less than 1% separated the runners up from the winners in 24 of the 34 Award categories, making the 2010 South Australian ABIA Awards the tightest contest in 10 years.

The tension, excitement and expectations could be felt throughout the magnificent Donato Reception Centre as the Top 20, Top 10, Top 5, Top 3 and finally the No 1 wedding supplier across the 34 wedding categories was announced.

The Chairman of the Academy Mr John O’ Meara congratulated all of the winners on their magnificent achievement and consoled those who missed out on the big win by such tight margins. Mr O’ Meara went on to say that all of the winners & finalists should be extremely proud of the work and dedication that each supplier put into delivering the brides dream of the perfect day.
