Hi, I paid 50% first payment for both my dress and my BM's dresses.

Mine was 50% when ordered and the other 50% when the dress came in. Some places offer a 10% discount if you pay in full. I had the money already for the dress when I prdered it so I paid in full and got the discount. I didn't buy in dublin so the dress wasn't as dear as it could have been
