That sounds very nice to me.  I would go with that.

Why can’t you not say anything at all? If she can be silent about offering her prices, you can be silent about taking her services. It can go both ways and it will actually help her understand ‘customer service’ a lot better if she wants to build on her flower arrangement business.

You are not obligated to tell her anything.

@Sasha2011: agreed. Then, if she asks, you can answer with what you said above

I would respond to her with your wording, it sounds good.  It’s appropriate to respond to her especially since your Mom sees her weekly, you don’t want it to become awkward or at the very worst have this lady think (from her own imagination) that she’s doing your wedding flowers.

I like what you have written. Sorry she flaked on you. It really aggravates me when someone offers their services and then goes missing…

Is it possible that the flowers would have been a gift? Is that why she was all coy with the prices?

Are you planning on inviting her to your wedding?  If so, you can tell her you’d like her to enjoy her time as a guest and not worry about working.

I would send her the letter. Just to be polite. I hate when people don’t answer the questions you asked in an e-mail it drives me up the wall. But it sounds like this lady thinks that she may already have gotten the job, so it would be good to let her know. Or else it will end up being awkward.

The letter you wrote sounds good to me.
