David’s Bridal steps in to help brides panicked by Alfred Angelo closures

David's Bridal is helping out brides who are in a panic after Alfred Angelo unexpectedly closed its stores on Thursday.

"We know how much goes into planning a wedding, and we want to ensure that everyone affected by this news can still have the day of their dreams," David's Bridal posted on its website. "If you recently purchased a wedding dress or bridesmaid dress from an Alfred Angelo retail store and did not receive it, we are offering a discount on a replacement dress of your choice."

Customers can visit any David's Bridal in the U.S. to receive the discount as long as they have their receipt from Alfred Angelo.

"The wedding day is the most important day of a woman's life, and this can certainly upset the bride," Laura Arango, store manager of the David's Bridal in Coral Gables, said. 

The bridal retailer is offering 30 percent off wedding dresses, 20 percent off bridesmaid dresses and is offering to waive rush fees for alterations needed to meet event dates.

The discount includes current promotions and clearance prices.

Employees were spotted leaving Alfred Angelo's corporate headquarters this week in Delray Beach with boxes.

A woman, who did not want to be named, told Local 10 News on Thursday that she had to rush to pick up her bridal party dress before the store she purchased it from closed.

"They called me. I'm in this wedding, and they said if you want the dress for the wedding, you have to come today, because the store is closing, and we just found out today. All the employees found out today," she said.

Alfred Angelo Piccione and Edythe Vincent Piccione co-founded the company in 1933 and sold their dresses and merchandise at 4,000 retailers worldwide. The company was running about 60 Alfred Angelo Bridal Signature stores in the U.S.
