Thomas W. Vaughan, owner and producer of the Georgia Bridal Show, created the BABAs in 1998 in order to bring recognition to the outstanding bridal merchants in the Atlanta market.
At each of the 6 Georgia Bridal Shows in the Atlanta market, ballots are distributed to all brides and grooms in attendance. It is the brides and grooms who vote on who they think are the best bridal merchants in the 15 different categories, and an awards presentation is held each year in conjunction with the September Georgia Bridal Show at the Infinite Energy Forum (formerly Gwinnett Center).
