2016 Designer of Dreams Awards


2016_ABIA_DOD_Logo_Transport_Top10 In a time-hungry age where far flung family, friends and relatives find it increasingly difficult to come together; a wedding is one such event which brings everyone together on one special day to celebrate the union of two families. The organisation and success of this one off event is contingent upon the creative skills of a group of professionals, known as V.O.W.S. or Vendors Of Wedding Services.

On Monday the 14th of March, Australia’s most creative and professional V.O.W.S. congregated at the Marriott Resort on the Gold Coast to celebrate the 2016 Designer of Dreams Awards. Hosted by the Australian Bridal Industry Academy, the Designer of Dreams Awards honour V.O.W.S. who have consistently delivered excellence every year for the past four consecutive years.

Over 96,000 newlyweds ranked, rated and evaluated the quality of product, quality of service, value for money and attitude of staff of 3,200 wedding businesses culminating in 249 Finalists who competed for Australia’s most prestigious wedding industry award.

A total of 249 FINALISTS were announced at the Gala event, which included Openair Wedding Cars. The Chairman of ABIA, Mr. John O’ Meara, said that Openair Wedding Cars should be extremely proud of the accomplishment which honoured the pride, passion and professionalism in which they delivered their product and service to their brides and grooms.

Mr. O’ Meara went onto say that V.O.W.S. like Openair Wedding Cars who have demonstrated the business skills and the determination to excel and exceed expectations are those who will continue to strive and thrive into the future in what is a fiercely competitive marketplace.

The Australian wedding market is composed of 120,000 weddings attended by 11,000,000 guests who collectively expend in excess of $3,000,000,000 each year.
