ABIA helping you find the PERFECT wedding supplier
The Australian Bridal Industry Academy was founded in 1997 to protect the bridal customer and promote the bridal supplier.
With the multitude of wedding supplier services available, we aim to make the selection process a little simpler and a lot
safer so that you can relax and enjoy what should be an enjoyable and exciting planning process leading up to the Big Day.

the ABIA directory
You can use the ABIA Directory to see the awards history and bridal ratings of ABIA suppliers.
The ABIA directory is a listing of over 30,000 Australian wedding suppliers, their awards history and bridal ratings.
The directory listings are placed in order of ABIA Accreditation level and ABIA Award placement.
Both the ABIA Awards & Accreditation logos provide the bridal industry with a means of recognising the highest
rated wedding suppliers as determined by brides, therefore, ABIA recommends that you take this into account when choosing your wedding supplier.

ABIA award winners & finalists
The ABIA system is based on bridal feedback where brides are asked to rate their wedding suppliers in the criteria of
Quality of Product, Quality of Service, Value for Money and Attitude of Staff.
ABIA then uses a mathematical calculation to determine the Winner & Finalists of each wedding category in each state
(The Annual State Bridal Industry Awards) and nationally (The Designer of Dreams Awards)
From this, we are able to hold the ABIA Award ceremonies to recognise those
wedding designers who have achieved excellence in their respective categories.
