Alfred Angelo's abrupt closure forces brides, retailers to scramble for dresses

"No other dress I put on made me feel like that dress made me feel", Benon says.

Headquartered in Delray Beach, Fl., Alfred Angelo Bridal designs wedding dresses, bridesmaid dresses and wedding accessories. Many customers Friday, July 14, 2017 at the West Covina store are very distress, who have been left without answers about how they'll get their dresses that are already on order.

Some brides said they had already ordered and paid for dresses, but had yet to receive them.

Other bridal stores are offering help to frantic brides as well. "It's gonna be okay because I have quality dresses from other companies".

But Thursday night Emily learned on social media that Alfred Angelo Bridal's had closed for good.

The 84-year-old retailer filed its petition Friday in a Florida bankruptcy court after closing all doors Thursday.

Helen Rivera, 35, is getting married in November with - ideally - 12 bridesmaids at her side.

The Delray Beach, Fla. -based chain closed about 60 of its stores nationwide, according to various media reports.

Several stores have tried to get a hold of anyone at Alfred Angelo and don't know what to tell their brides.

According to the Wall Street Journal, the company is planning to file for bankruptcy protection. Rush fees on alterations will be waived to help meet event dates within a tight timeframe, and alterations services will be offered for Alfred Angelo dresses as well at the regular price.

The closings has led to panic and anger among brides who are waiting for dresses.

They were greeted by a locked door and a sign that included a phone number for a Miami attorney.

Stoltz said that the employee told her she could only pay by check or cash.

"Many of these girls, this is their livelihood and they are without a job suddenly". "We also have close to 300 bridesmaids dresses that we are selling off between $45-$65 off the rack, we also have many bridal dresses going off the rack as well, up to 50 percent off". "Especially when you're taking people's money, you're not notifying them what's going to go on with their dress, what's going on with the store?"

Helen had done her research, she said, found her dream dress and went straight to Alfred Angelo.

Stephanie Wallace's bridesmaids bought their dresses at the Alfred Angelo location in North Attleboro just a few weeks ago.
