Bridal Shop Shocks Brides to Be By Filing Bankruptcy


The second friend got really lucky, Fudge said, because she was told the second friend's wedding dress has been shipped to Miamisburg.

Many have taken to social media to vent their frustration with the situation. According to a store manager, Alfred Angelo Bridal is closing all three stores in Houston and 63 stores nationwide.

Planning a wedding is already pretty stressful, and an unknown number of brides across the country have an extra and unanticipated source of stress: Alfred Angelo, a retailer and maker of bridal and bridesmaids' gowns, abruptly closed its doors and stopped answering the phone yesterday.

She added: 'Bridal shops are working hard to find a solution'. "Can I get to the store in time?" another bride said.

One panicked bride entered the Tulsa-area store on Thursday, and left with a free dress. "It was stressful thinking about what if they close", she said. "I'm anxious", said Molly Shifflett from Madison. In some instances brides were called and told to come pick up their dresses before the store closed.

Back in Grand Rapids, the owner of Second Dance Bridal & Formal Consignment reached out to WZZM on Facebook and said she wants to help any brides that are left without a dress.

GeekWire: Microsoft plans to bring broadband Internet to 2M rural Americans
Microsoft estimates that 5 million households with school-age children don't have access to the Internet in rural America. Microsoft's plan, however, may not be the best way to go about expanding Internet access to others, some experts say.

A popular bridal store is reportedly closing all of its locations on Thursday.

A spokesperson said: 'As a team we have unfortunately found out this devastating news with no prior notice and are just as shocked and saddened as I know you all are too. "I have had stores calling me and if I have it, then I am giving it to them", she said.

It remained unclear whether customers would receive items they'd ordered and paid for. In 2014, Alfred Angelo celebrated 80 years of dressing brides for their big day. Calls from upset brides and bridesmaids, including customers of the Alfred Angelo in Baton Rouge, have been ongoing since Thursday morning, he said.

Alfred Angelo did not immediately return Business Insider's request for comment, and the brand's customer service line went straight to voicemail. "So, we got all of her wedding jewelry sorted out and got a couple of dresses for my wife as well".

Bridal stores around the nation like R.K. Bridal have offered discounts and other assistance those affected by the dress maker's shutdown.
