Bride-to-be finds silver lining in Alfred Angelo closings

In the company's bankruptcy filing, it revealed that it had no more than $50,000 in assets, but over $50 million in debt, according to the New York Times.

"If we had what customers needed in the store, they were more than welcome to take it with them", she said.

Amber McGraw, 27, said she felt "utter heartbreak" when she found out Friday morning that the Dublin, Ohio location had been shuttered.

Cindy Neal tried to get her future daughter-in-law's dress and was told it's not ready.

Meanwhile, stores like Taylor's Bridal Boutique in Elmira, Ont., are doing their best to get dresses that might be at the company's warehouse to their rightful owners. "You can pick it up in August when your dress comes.' I thought it was a joke, I can't really believe it", customer Katie Kortuem told KTXL-TV outside a Roseville, California, store. Standing outside Alfred Angelo's Boynton Beach store on Friday, she was desperate to learn about her wedding dress.

"We got some very concerned phone calls about what to do", said Vincent Saladino, who owns Virginia's Bridal in Queens.

One is believed to be in the Alfred Angelo store in Riverside, Calif., where the bride-to-be has apparently contacted the Starbucks next door, who confirmed workers remain in the bridal store and was preparing to head there to extract the dress with Redmond's permission.

"Now a couple weeks later, hearing this news broke her heart ... and now were even more stressed than we were before". "Whether your wedding is in a month or a year we promise to take care of you". And it gets pricey.

For many women with wedding event within few days, it will be hard to arrange for a new wedding dress.

That might seem like a lot, but it's small compared to the $82,299 average for couples in NY.

Brides-to-be in West Michigan, and across the country, are panicking after a bridal store with dozens of locations nationwide abruptly closes all stores and files for bankruptcy.
