Hi ladies! I am feeling annoyed because I contacted a potential florist (friend of my DOC) over two weeks ago via email to get a quote for her services, and I still have not received a quote! I asked her up-front for a quote at least twice. She got info from me such as my venues, size of BP, color scheme, etc. Last week she said "I really prefer to meet my brides in person first to talk about the wedding before giving a quote." I replied, "okay, I'm available on these days and times"... and I have heard nothing back from her.
Am I doing something wrong? This is the first florist I have contacted, so I don't know if this is typical or not. Do florists need to meet with the bride first before working up a quote? I thought she would be able to conceptualize something based on our numerous emails and at least give me a ballpark with her ideas. I would like to work with this person since she's a friend of my DOC and I could probably get a good deal from her, but I'm already annoyed with her and feeling like her lack of follow-up is unprofessional. Am I being too harsh? Should I wait around, or look elsewhere?
