"Wild" florals in Dallas

So I'm having issues with florists around Dallas. I'm really going for a wild, undone sort of look a la Saipua (you can see my ideal florals on my wedding Pinterest board here!) and there doesn't seem to be a lot of that around.

My problem is, the two florists that I've found that do similar work are both not so responsive. One couldn't even communicate adequately over email to arrange a time for us to meet, and I met with the other one in person and loved her, but it's been 2 weeks and other than an immediate follow-up email I got from her, I haven't heard much. I realize that a floral proposal can take a while to come up with, but I think 2 weeks is plenty of time. Am I wrong?

Can you recommend any more florists that do the "undone" look? Here are the ones I've found:

Bows & Arrows
Blue Lotus
Branching Out Events Co.

P.S. I forgot to share my Pinterest account, and my blog, in case anyone is ever interested in reading! :)

    Do you have pictures of what you're looking for?  Almost any florist can help you out so long as you have pictures of your vision.  Also, my florist (Market Street) has always been willing to do mock ups so, IMO, any florist should be willing to do the same.  I loved working with Market Street and Central Market also has beautiful flowers as well.

    Any good florist can do anything you want.  Just concentrate on finding someone you click with and who is in your budget.  Several Knotties have used Branching Out and been happy--I'm not familiar with the others.

    I found florists to be the slowest to respond of all the vendors I worked with.  If you're wanting an answer, call them. 

    I loved Angela's flowers--but I don't think Meg is doing weddings until next year.  It wouldn't hurt to contact her though just to see.

    You could try A man and A woman floral. 

    I'm meeting with Branching Out this week. I had some trouble getting a hold of her too but I'm hoping it's because of Christmas.

    TexanTreasure had nice flowers, I'm not sure if it's what you're looking for. She used MegB Designs. Here's the link to the blogs from her photographer!

    I got a quote from Bows and Arrows and was happy with their ideas and prices. They did the flowers for one of my friend's wedding in May and they were beautiful - branchy type of arrangements.
    I ended up going with Garden Gate cause they were slightly lower in price and the flowers were AMAZING!!

    I went with Out of the Garden and really loved the floral they did.  I don't have pics yet, but I'm supposed to have those Monday.

    I had Nathan from GRO Designs do florals for an event (for a party) that I planned. I contacted him last minute and he was so amazing and super sweet. Not only was I able to get him to help last minute, but I was able to tell him what I envisioned and he recreated it on the budget I needed. I would use him for my own wedding, but a florist just isn't in our budget. He is very modern and creative.

    As others have said, I have found that it is easier to call rather than email.

    Thank you so much for all of your recommendations! I'll look into all of them and let you guys know what I decide on. Here are some pictures of my floral inspirations:







    The thought has crossed my mind to DIY the flowers too. I would only take on this responsibility if I end up coming back to Dallas for the month before my wedding, and I'd use a family friend who likes doing flowers and has access to the wholesale florists around here. I'm just kicking around the idea right now, probably won't do it. Has anyone DIYed flowers on the board? Any tips? Did you absolutely want to kill yourself? haha

    I did do DIY flowers, but kept it very simple, even though we made the centerpieces as well. It wasn't so bad...I had my sister to help me. We ordered the flowers from farmstogo.com and I was very happy with them.

    look at the arboretum- they have classes on the weekends and sometimes even have extra flowers to take home to practice with!
