The mild winter may have messed up the plant's normal cycle. I would give it a bit longer. Giving it a dose of fbalanced ertilizer may help. You may want to check the stems to see that they are still green beneath the bark. This article will help with that: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/plant-problems/environmental/how-to-tell-if-a-plant-is-dead-and-how-to-recover-an-almost-dead-plant.htm

Pruning usually takes place following blooms in late spring. Here is more information: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/shrubs/weigela/pruning-weigela.htm
