Each year, the ABIA hosts the 5 State Annual Bridal Industry Awards and the National Designer of Dreams Awards to reward and recognise the best wedding businesses in the industry. 

The Academy has created a unique and invaluable system designed to enhance the credibility of the dedicated wedding supplier by rewarding their passion and professionalism with public recognition of their past work.
Over 35,000 newlyweds are registered with ABIA’s system to collect ratings & reviews to determine the Winners & Finalists for the Annual Bridal Industry Awards.

Participating newlyweds supply invaluable information by rating & reviewing the ‘Quality of Product’, ‘Quality of Service’, ‘Value for Money’ and ‘Attitude of Staff’ of each of their nominated wedding suppliers. The bridal ratings are collated and used to determine who were, in the opinion of the voting newlyweds, the best suppliers of each wedding category.
