Why Did Alfred Angelo Stores Close

Why Alfred Angelo Just Closed All Its Stores — and Left Brides Panicking


As if wedding planning wasn't already stressful enough, some brides who thought they had decided on Alfred Angelo for their wedding gowns and bridesmaid dresses might have to start all over again.

The popular Florida-based bridal retailer closed all of its stores across the country on July 13 without issuing any warning to its now-distraught brides. A statement has since been posted on the store's website confirming that it has filed for bankruptcy, but it does not have answers about what this means for anyone who has paid for a gown:

Alfred Angelo filed for bankruptcy on July 14, 2017. As a result, all stores and wholesalers are closed … If you wish to be contacted regarding your order status once information is available, please send an email to alfredangelo@mjstrustee.com. We will post additional information regarding the status of dresses on this website as it becomes available. We apologize for the inconvenience and hardship resulting from this event. We appreciate your patience. Thank you.

Along with the 60 Alfred Angelo signature stores in the United States, the bridalwear is sold at more than 2,500 stores. Brides who have already paid deposits are sharing their panic across social media about the unknown status of their dresses, while some generous newlyweds are offering to lend their gowns to strangers in need.
