Get To Know - En Gedi Bridal

1. What type of services do you offer?

En Gedi Bridal is a full service wedding and event specialist. We do not offer typical retail floral service, which allows us to concentrate fully on the goals and needs of our brides and event planners. From the first consultation to the delivery of your event you will deal directly with Jodi and Sara which allows us to get to know each bride's personality and dreams. This helps make your wedding unique and personalized in a way that is unparalleled by florist shops.

  1. How long have you been in the floral industry and where are you located?

En Gedi Bridal has been servicing brides in West Michigan for ten years. We are located in Holland, but have served brides from Grand Haven to Saugatuck and from Holland to Lowell.

  1. Is there anything that you specialize in?
Our specialty is weddings. Because we deal exclusively with brides and event planners we are not distracted by retail sales. Our goal is to get to know each bride and what she visions her wedding to look like, then we make it our priority to exceed that dream in quality and creativity with our floral design.

4. What do you think sets you apart from other vendors in the industry?

When a bride is dealing with a traditional floral shop she typically has a consultation with one person, another one orders her flowers, another one designs her flowers, and another delivers her order. This allows for the brides vision to be "lost in translation" and produces a mass production look. At En Gedi Bridal, the bride only deals with the designers, Jodi and Sara. We personally handle every detail of her event, making sure it is a reflection of her personality.

  1. Do you have a favorite flower that you like to use? Do you have a favorite color scheme?

A favorite flower is difficult to choose. Our favorite designs are ones which embrace the season of the event. Nothing is more beautiful than a red, orange and russet event in October, a vibrant pallet of hot pinks in July, or a crisp pallet of whites in January. We enjoy wowing brides with unique seasonal flowers and greens that make her event more special than the cookie cutter floral mix.

  1. When you’re not busy working, how do you like to spend your downtime?

Both of our designers are full time moms of very active children. We also both have a passion for interior design. Both Jodi and Sara are also active as volunteers in our churches and in our children's schools.
