Members of the ABIA

The system of collecting bridal feedback is of the utmost importance to ABIA as it forms the foundation for the ABIA Accreditation and Awards system. This system has been set in place to ensure high quality service amongst bridal suppliers and allows the bride to easily determine who the quality businesses are through the ABIA Accreditation logos.

All ABIA Members must attain an A Rate (average rating) equal to or above 95.00%.
The A Rate is an average of all ratings provided by a business’ past brides in the most recent award year.

An A Rate consists of the following criterion:

Quality of Product | Quality of Service | Attitude of Staff  | Value for Money

All past brides have the opportunity to rate a business out of 100 points in each of criterion mentioned above.
