Alfred Angelo's store on Miracle Mile is a prime destination for brides-to-be, along with other bridal and wedding-related stores.

Brooke Fugate, of Knoxville, picked up her wedding gown at the store two weeks ago.

As for Kristen's veil and one bridesmaid dress that still hasn't been shipped, she says she's been fortunate up to this point, still holding out hope. BABC's operations including its web store and retail store are located at 3308 Laventure Drive, Suite B170, Atlanta, GA, 30341.

"I'm going to be honest, I did cry yesterday", Groh said. But that's just a piece of the overall wedding package that couples typically buy. There's police officers all around the place. After noticing a crack in the boards, Edwards walked up to the building and started banging on the windows. Yeah, you. You can hear me.

"Maybe if it gets too close to the wedding maybe I'll worry about it, but for now I'm just gonna trust in what they say". And now my coworkers are telling me. "And you know the wedding dress shopping should be fun and joyful and it was sad to see these ladies not getting their dress", said Andy Calhoun.

And she's even inspired others to do the same. Social media has been ablaze with frantic brides wondering about the status of their wedding dresses.

Bridal gown company Alfred Angelo confirmed Sunday it has filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy and all stores and wholesalers are now closed. Word of these closures spread quickly to the brand's customers, who flocked to the stores in a panic.

Police plan to keep a vehicle floating in the area as a precaution, he said. But Amber McGraw (ph) was not so lucky.

The Bella Sera Boutique in Danvers posted an invite for all Alfred Angelo brides on Facebook. As news sites reported the closings, brides-to-be were sent into a frenzy to track down dresses they paid for. "God, I am so thankful", said Stradley. Her wedding is a week from Saturday.

She and her fiance may end up purchasing new dresses out of pocket.

"We already put out $1,850 with a check and now we have no money and possibly no dress", said Pucci. An employee at Alfred Angelo Bridal in Tampa told ABC Action News the store was permanently closing its doors at 8 p.m.

After several days of silence, a chain of bridal stores with dozens of locations has finally released a statement about its sudden shutdown.

David's Bridal posted an offer on its website to help out people impacted by the closure.

Last week, the company, based out of Delray Beach, closed its doors to customers and in many cases only left a note on the door asking customers to call an attorney's office.
