13th National Designer of Dreams Awards

The Designer of Dreams Awards celebrates the outstanding achievements of wedding businesses and professionals that received and maintained high quality ratings and reviews from their very own wedding clients across the past four (4) consecutive years.

We must extend our gratitude to the 108,567 newlyweds invited to rate & review their wedding vendors over the past 4 years, who nominated a total of 4,863 businesses, and determined the 350 ABIA National Finalists.

It is ABIA's great privilege to recognise Wedding Vendors who continuously set greater standards for the Australian Wedding Marketplace and deliver outstanding results to their wedding clients. ABIA would like to extend its thanks to all vendors, who continue to unite, encourage, and boost positivity throughout the Australian Wedding Community.
