2nd WA Annual Bridal Industry Awards, 2012

Friday, 30 November 2012

The Australian Bridal Industry Academy (ABIA) was founded in 1997 to protect the bridal customer and promote the bridal supplier. They aim to make the selection process of wedding suppliers a little simpler and safer by compiling bridal feedback about suppliers, to help the to-be-weds choices a little easier.

ABIA uses a mathematical calculation, from the feedback the brides and grooms have given, 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).


The 2nd WA Annual Bridal Industry Awards, 2012 winners were published online earlier today, many big suppliers of Western Australia were mentioned. Though one I really want to mention is Flowers in Love, which is local business here in Geraldton. Flowers in Love offers a range of services including fresh or silk flower design; unique event hire items; and handmade bridal Swarovski crystal and pearl jewellery.

This year's WA Annual Bridal Industry Awards have recognised Chantelle's fabulous work and have awarded Flowers In Love with the Wedding Hire award, with Finalist positions in Decorator, Flower Design and Jewellery Fashion. Congratulations Flowers In Love!

There are plenty of other really great suppliers that have also been given awards in this years WA ABIA awards, check out the list and make sure to put in the word on your suppliers after your wedding!

DIY Ring Mirror Backdrop

Ruffled recently posted a DIY Ring Mirror Backdrop, which was used as a feature in a Modern Mediterranean Shoot by Yellow Bird Events. I think it would be a great feature for many occasions, and have good reuse around the home.
