Buying a wedding dress.
We recommend to think ahead and buy your dress well in advance- at least 2-4 months before the big day. This time will be enough to sew a dress in the tailor shop slowly, without haste , and make the try-on in the salon. In urgent cases we offer an Express-Service. The main thing for us is You and Your wedding.
San Patrick offers more than 200 wedding dresses which cannot be physically placed in our salon. Thus, if you have seen a model on the website or in the catalogue and have made your choice, it would not be a problem to order it or a similar model specially for you according to your contours.
Samples of the dresses, which are offered for try-on in our salon, are just samples to get an idea of the dress. Your dress will be ordered according to your unique size, and then it will be altered during the first and second fitting.

The first fitting.
Finally, the dress has been selected and ordered. Everything is ready for the first fitting. On the appointed day and hour you will be welcome by your personal consultant and a tailor, in order to take your measurement and make necessary alterations. The dress will be pinned to achieve the perfect fit for your contours and length. It is pleasant to realize that an experienced team of professionals is working carefully and diligently on your dress.

Tips on proper use of your wedding dress.
1. HOW TO PUT ON THE DRESS.
We recommend to get a dress from the cover and hang it on the hanger as high as possible to smooth out creases. You do not have to iron the dress. It usually takes a proper shape on the hanger. Please start putting on the dress through your feet, to avoid stains from your make-up. Then put on the petticoat.

2. ACCESSORIES.
We recommend to get a wedding veil from the cover and hang it on the hanger to avoid creases. Try to wear your shoes a few days before your wedding day in order to feel comfortable on that day. We advise you to take a few pairs of stockings.

3. IN THE CAR.
Get into the car with your back from that side, from which you are going to get out. Put the train of the dress on the opposite side, so that you come out first, and the train of the dress stretches behind you.

4. DURING THE CEREMONY.
Ask someone to help you to lift and straighten the train of the dress when you sit down. If you sit down on the seat with a backrest, the train of the dress should be placed from the opposite side of the groom. If you have any questions, please feel free to call us withing our business hours , from Monday till Saturday during opening hours.
