We've heard way too many stories from heartbroken brides who have simply trusted the wrong people with their day of days. From undelivered wedding dresses, missing cakes and inferior products, unfortunately not everyone runs an honest business. Unscrupulous wedding suppliers not only have a devastating impact on couples, but on the reputation of all those working in the Australian wedding and events industry.
Enter Wedding and Events of Australia (WEOA).
WEOA is an industry body that simultaneously assists both groups by connecting brides and grooms with accredited wedding suppliers. Couples are given quality assurance while deserved business is referred to the right professional suppliers.
For brides and grooms it's easy - ask a supplier if they're a WEOA member or check out the list of WEOA approved vendors on the WEOA website. The WEOA logo is a powerful thing separating the sharks from the winners. As a bridal member of WEOA you will not only have access to the industry's elite suppliers, but you will receive exclusive offers, updates and information on all the latest industry trends - all free!

Even more powerful is a WEOA 'Award for Excellence'. These prestigious awards were created to recognise excellence in business practice across the Weddings Industry. Judged by a panel of distinguished high profile professionals, these awards really are the best of the best. Submissions for this year's awards commence on March 1st.
