Default Should I ask for a deposit?

Hi ladies
I had a lady contact me today and she wants to get 4 tutu dresses for her flower girls to wear. Well I am going to mail her some color samples and she wanted to know if she needed to pay or make a deposit first. This never even crossed my mind. Should I have her do a deposit adn how much. I want to be fair and not scare her off. The total will be $200.00 plus shipping. So I was thinking $20.00 Yikes now I need to get a box big enough to fit 4 dresses TIA for your help
Yvonne

That is a big order. I would get enough to cover the materials and let her pay the labor later.

I definitely would ask for a deposit.....I make my tutus custom and I require the payment and then they ship in 2-3 weeks.....I have had no complaints about the payment first.

Thanks everyone! I guess I just get nervous asking too much but I am sure she wouldn't think twice about it. I remember planning my wedding I had to do a deposit for everything I'm glad that is over. She said she would send me a picture of all of them in their dresses too I can't wait I LOVE to see other girls in my things it makes my heart happy!
