I would email her back and tell her you would really like to be able to meet her in person and sit down and talk about ideas with her.  If she resists, I would find someone else.  Are you not worth her time or something just because your order is on the smaller side?  Or maybe she just feels the order won’t be as complicated?  Regardless of her reasons, I wouldn’t book a florist without being able to talk with her face-to-face about options and ideas – and if you specifically ask for a meeting and she refuses, I think you can take that as a sign that it will be pretty difficult to work with her.

I would definitely request to meet in person.  Then you can give her ideas of what you are thinking and she can offer some suggestions or alternatives (if need be) and *hopefully* show you some samples or her portfolio.  I don’t think I’m alone when I say that I have no idea about flowers and prices.  It’s nice to meet with a professional for guidance and be able to see some suggestions if the original plan doesn’t fall into the budget.  Personally, if she doesn’t want to meet with you on your order, regardless of size, then I’m sure there is another vendor who would.  Flowers are so pricey and don’t last…so for that price I’d want to feel comfort in knowing what I’m getting and paying for.
