Bankrupt Bridal company wishes customers "much success" after closing its doors

Now brides in the valley are without their dresses after Alfred Angelo, an worldwide retailer, shut its doors.

Lawrence told CNNMoney that she visited Alfred Angelo's Manchester, Connecticut location in April and put down $950 for her dream wedding dress.

The sudden closures of the bridal retail shops left some customers in a lurch - some still waiting on dresses.

"This is the most memorable part of your wedding day, and you don't know what's going on", she said.

"It's good it's a human being", she said.

"Right now, I'm upset".

Facebook wedding group posts about the store closing sent Whelton to the Danvers store Thursday, she said. "We came back, they were closed", Shanequa said. And in Texas, San Antonio police tells NBC they received at least three 911 calls from desperate brides seeking help to retrieve their time-sensitive dresses.

"The manager actually went and looked on the rack". "I bought my dress off the rack", she said.

"Everybody has been contacting one another to see what we might have to fill the void for different shops", Furze said. "Someone said: 'You've ruined my life".

It's unclear what will happen to those who had already ordered through Alfred Angelo, either at one of its stores or one of its partner locations, whether they will get their dresses or if they will be receiving refunds.

But if a consumer paid cash for deposits on dresses at Alfred Angelo's, that shopper will "be like any other creditor in a bankruptcy proceeding", Gallagher said.

Her mother tells KHOU that order - paid in full - will not be fulfilled. Her name is Patricia A. Redmond, and her phone is (305) 789-3553 or email her at predmond@stearnsweaver.com. KHOU 11 News emailed and called Ms. Redmond.

"We had a call from a bride saying that now since Alfred Angelo is closing, do we have a certain style?"

With so many questions, and the company not providing any answers, Houstonians are offering to help.

"I have these two dresses and I don't know what to do with them", she said. "I just can not believe that they would do this". "We want to do as much damage control as possible".

"The girls at that store were so helpful and so comforting, I feel for them, I really do", said North Reading resident Kristen Whelton, who is getting married in May at the Black Swan Country Club in Georgetown.

Bride-to-be Ashley Stutes and sales associate Shea Young consider wedding gowns with family and friends.

Bridesmaids were also stranded outside without their wedding necessities. She spent Friday out delivering those gowns.
