That is very odd.  You’d think they could at least give a ballpark figure if they have an idea of what your venue needs or what flowers you want.  I probably wouldn’t even move forward with paying for a sample if I had that experience.

We had a weird experience with a potential photographer who was referred to us by a freind.  I arranged a call to get to know them.  We finished the call and I told them I’d take some time to go through their portfolio and let them know if I have any questions.  No indication was made that I would book them at this point, not even verbally.  And yet, they called and emailed me constantly after that.  And at weird hours too, like 7:30am and 10pm.  I booked another photographer during this time and told them I went with someone else.  You’d think that would stop the messages, but no.  Just last month, over a year after I booked my photographer, they sent me a FB message through our mutual friend asking if I was still shopping for a photographer.  Yeaahhhhhh I am so glad I booked somebody else.

I don’t think you should have to pay for a proposal/quote.  I wouldn’t.  Too many other florists out there.
