So, you’ve seen an ad promoting an upcoming awards, spoken to a few supplier friends, heard mixed opinions, and end up unsure whether to enter! If that’s you, we’ve been there, a lot of us in the industry have. I’d like to explain why wedding industry awards are important for suppliers, and why the benchmark value is not just winning! 

Our Main Goal

Here at Weddings Inc. our main goal is to provide a seamless and stress-free experience for soonlyweds, helping to connect them with weddings suppliers. We also want suppliers who advertise on our directory to feel supported and equipped with the knowledge to be able to expand their own business. What that means is we care…We really care, about soonlyweds and suppliers alike!

So, we created a wedding industry awards where you can be assured, you can’t buy a badge to say you’re a winner and not everyone will meet the brief to win (We’ve heard the horror stories). It’s an award that truly means you are exceptional in your field. A badge that carries weight and allows soonlyweds to use your services in confidence.
