How's this for a wedding-day disaster: You found the wedding dress of your dreams. You put down your deposit or—gasp!—paid in full. Then, before you ever had your first fitting or even picked up your dress, the store where you found your frock closes its doors. Permanently. Total nightmare, right? Well, this is happening—in real life!—to tons of brides and bridesmaids right now. Popular bridal designer Alfred Angelo has officially closed most, if not all, of its brick-and-mortar retail stores, reportedly without any warning. The disastrous result? Tons of brides and bridesmaids may not receive their dress orders as expected. Yikes… Luckily, David's Bridal is offering a stellar solution.
The Palm Beach Post reports that Alfred Angelo employees were exiting the company's corporate headquarters in Delray Beach, Florida en-masse on Thursday, so things definitely look bleak for Alfred Angelo brides and bridesmaids (as well as employees) who are still without their dresses. “Everyone left one-by-one with cardboard boxes, plants,” reported one witness to the mass exodus. “One of them said it they were all fired today... It was so bizarre."
However, David's Bridal is coming to the rescue of brides and bridal parties affected by the close of Alfred Angelo. So listen up, brides, because this can totally save your wedding day. If, due to the store closures, you or your 'maids suddenly find yourselves without a dress, just bring your original branded Alfred Angelo retail receipt to any David’s Bridal location in the U.S. for some megadiscounts.
