"It was three judges with three couples on the floor"

And the obvious thing to do about it is to hire more than three judges! And not just bodies, but people who are real experts with standing in the community.
This is pretty much a universal requirement for any sanctioned competition. If you want to hold an informal, low-budget local competition with only three judges, that's fine. But you'll get what you pay for - the opportunity for a lot of fun, but marks that don't necessarily mean much.
