    I couldn't agree more! I joked with my WC about the crazy brides she has to deal with and she instantly started responding to all my questions.

      Hi girls. We're thinking about having a welcome dinner at the Royal a couple of days before the wedding. We'd want it to be private so that families staying at the Gran could come and would probably do a Mexican buffet in the garden or something like that. Is the cost still $25pp? I'm hoping this didn't change too...otherwise it might be less expensive to go off-site!

        Also...I think it would be seriously funny if we kept a running tally of the bride vs. royal score!!!!!! Go Team Bride!
        I totally agree on the score card!!! Lets keep it going!!!!

              LOL! Doreen called me today and said that I sent her the longest email she had ever received. I find that a little hard to believe but very funny ;-) We talked through everything and confirmed the outline of our wedding and that I would be locked in at the prices from when I was booked. It's a good thing that we talked because they had NOTHING recorded for me...just may name and date!! I must say that Doreen was very pleasant on the phone so I'll settle down on my ranting for a while.

              Still, I think that's another point for Team Bride!!

              The thought of dress shopping also motivated me to spend an extra hour in the gym today. Woohoo!!

              And thanks Lisa, you and your FI are adorable too!!! Our friends got married on NYE and my siggy picture is from the wedding. Its was a lot of fun but it's funny how much differently I look at weddings now that I'm planning one of my own.

                Question:

                What is the usual deposit/retainer percentage (of total package) and process to hire a photographer?

                ...just wanna get an idea of what is standard

                  I'm using Del Sol and they asked for a 50% deposit.

                    I think 50% is the industry standard. We are looking at bringing a photographer with us from home and she also requires a 50% deposit at the time of booking.
