@Tbourret:  We got an estimate definitely within a week. It took longer for us because I wanted a particular colour if orchid and the florist had to check with his grower to make sure it would be available for our wedding date. Two weeks sounds like a long time!

It took most of my vendors two weeks to get back with me. I always send a follow up email when I get impatient. I don’t think there is anything wrong with a little nudge if its been two weeks.

Two weeks sounds like a long time TBH. I’d send them a little nudge.

I’d rather give my money to people who are eager to please.

We got a quote right then and there when I showed her everything I wanted. Idk why it would take over a week.

@Tbourret:  Mine took a little longer than that which we found out when we called to check on it, was abnormal. But it was due to the holiday season.  The florist we met with had been bombarded with setting up holiday displays at businesses and hotels so he just hadn’t had the time to finish it.  Your florist may be having the same issue now that holidays are over and they need to clean it all up?  Just a possibility.  Call and ask though.  We did and it gave them that little extra push.  We didn’t demand it, just called to check the status.

Two weeks does sound like a long time, except for the fact that the Christmas/New Years period might be the only time of the year the florist gets off. I would wait until Monday afternoon, and then send a follow up.

We got a quote the day of our consultation.

We got ours the day of the consultation as well.  But then again, we are doing 95% red roses so it was pretty easy 🙂

My prior one took over a week after promising me it would be done in 2-3 days.

Then the new one only took one day! So it really depends.

But personally if it gets to be over a week and a half I would start to wonder.
