Fugate and her bridesmaids now have only two months to try find dresses that match.

On Friday morning, the family got a phone call from a clerk - the store had found her actual dress.

It was a scene being replayed in other parts of the state and the country.

Retailer Alfred Angelo filed for chapter 7 bankruptcy and closed all 60 retail stores Thursday night.

As Zoll, who plans to attend a January wedding in New Jersey, stood in front of the locked door around 11:45 a.m., an employee opened the door and let her in.

The sudden closing has created more bridezillas than usual.

Tory Dean, a manager with The Dresser Bridal Couture shop in Fullerton, said she already had an idea that something was up. It was a sample. "God, I am so thankful", said Stradley. "Now a couple weeks later, hearing this news broke her heart ... and now were even more stressed than we were before".

A recent study from The Knot, a wedding resource and marketplace, shows that the average amount spent on a wedding dress in 2015 was $1,469. She had also ordered a veil.

The employees were able to track down the exact dress Whelton had first tried on, which was three sizes too big.

Not every encounter at the store ended well.

Donahue attempted to walk away from her vehicle with her children when police arrived and eventually arrested her. The Department of Human Services placed the children in the care of another family member.

The couple said when they went to the store, the windows were covered in paper and with a "closed" sign on the door.

"There's no dress in sight, no refund in sight", Danielle said.

"People were just walking in there and getting their things and leaving", said Stradley.

The company says if you bring in a receipt from the store, customers can get 30 percent off a wedding dress and 20 percent off bridesmid dresses. He said the employees had to be out of the store Friday.

While a salesperson eventually recognized her and directed her to the seamstress in possession of her gown, other brides weren't so lucky. I called the store and no one answered.

She said the closure left some customers were angry, blaming the workers for the situation. Her sister-in-law went to the store on Friday, but no luck.

Now, Damon said, she's stuck. There was an email address the brides were told to contact.

"Right now I'm just angry because that was my own money, that was my own investment", Wilkowski said. She was informed by her fiance on July 14 that the Alfred Angelo franchise had shut down.

"[Employees] would not speak to reporters, but told a group of anxious customers to contact the law firm listed on the door and that the company had not paid them for work this week". They were also selling only what was on the floor. "When I got home I had an e-mail confirmation." of the appointment.

David's Bridal is offering to help by giving a discount to anyone who purchased wedding or bridesmaid dresses from Alfred Angelo and didn't receive them.
