@Dulce de Leche:  The patron saint of brides is Santa Claus.  No, really. 

Saint Nicholas (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saint_Nicholas) was a 4th century bishop known for leaving secret gifts for people (he would put coins in people’s shoes if they left them out – but only at night so no one knew who did it), hence the origin of Santa Claus and the fact that he’s the patron saint of gift giving.

Saint Nicholas was particularly generous (financially) with young brides and unmarried women and helped them greatly before they were married, hence the fact that he’s the patron saint of brides.
