About the ABIA

At ABIA Weddings, we come to work every day to discuss ways of connecting Engaged Couples with trustworthy Wedding Brands.

ABIA's Mission

Established in 1996, ABIA's mission has always been to promote the Trustworthy Wedding Vendor whilst protecting the Wedding Customer. Since then, ABIA has grown to be the Tripadvisor of Weddings, where you can find hundreds of thousands of Customer Recommendations, Reviews, ABIA Industry Awards to compare & book Vendors.

The Australian wedding market consists of an estimated 40,000 businesses, making it challenging for couples to determine which businesses are a right fit for their wedding day...

This is where ABIA can help...

Similar to Tripadvisor ™, past wedding clients rate and review ABIA’s extensive list of wedding businesses to help future wedding clients make the best booking decisions. 

Since 1996, ABIA have hosted the longest-standing wedding industry awards (ABIA Awards) in Australia. Attracting nearly 30,000 married couples each year to rate & review thousands of wedding businesses.

These are the ratings that determine the Winners & Finalists for each of the 35 ABIA Award Categories, ranging from Best Wedding Venue to Best Wedding Cake Designer to the Best Bridal Gown Boutique + more.

How Australia’s Newlyweds Rate & Review their wedding vendors.

Every wedding couple is invited by at least  ‘1’ of their wedding vendors to rate & review their services, each couple provides a rating out of 100% in the 4 Pillars of Perfection, with the option of leaving a written review. The ABIA Awards are solely determined on the ratings provided by wedding couples, not an industry judging panel nor a popularity contest.
