Bridal retailer Alfred Angelo abruptly closes all stores

Bridal retailer Alfred Angelo abruptly closed its stores on Thursday night without notice, leaving many brides and bridesmaids without answers and dresses.

The company has more than 60 stores across the country. After news of the closings broke, brides scrambled to pick up dresses before the stores shut their doors for good at 8 p.m.

As of Friday morning, the company still had not released a statement about the closings.

Competitor David’s Bridal said it would offer 30 percent discounts to brides and 20 percent discounts to bridesmaids left without dresses.

Employees at Alfred Angelo’s corporate office in Delray Beach left the building en masse on Thursday, carrying boxes, plants and other personal belongings, as social media talk swirled that the bridal retailer was closing its doors.  

The scene followed buzz on social media saying that the company, which was founded in 1933, is going out of business. On Twitter and online message boards, anxious brides posted queries and alerts, but few found answers.  

By Thursday afternoon, there were no employees in the company’s Delray corporate office on the fourth floor of a building on Congress Avenue at Linton Boulevard. Some offices still had desks and supplies and framed posters of wedding dresses hung on the walls.  

An employee of another business on the first floor, which faces the main entrance to the building, described seeing a “mass exodus before lunchtime.”  

“Everyone left one by one with cardboard boxes, plants,” said the employee, who asked not to be named. “One of them said it. They were all fired today … It was so bizarre.”  

A company representative could not immediately be reached for comment Thursday. Employees did not answer the phone at the chain’s store in Broward County. The company’s website said there are more than 800 stores offering Alfred Angelo merchandise.

Anxious brides took to Twitter on Thursday to sound off on the status of their orders and the lack of information coming from the company. Some brides said they had already ordered and paid for dresses, but had yet to receive them.  

“Any other #brides stressed about the #alfredangelo bankruptcy?? @theknot @WeddingWire @brides THIS IS SO MESSED UP,” one woman wrote.

”@AlfredAngelo Will you still be fulfilling orders that were placed months ago?” another person asked.  

“One store location did answer the phone. Sales rep said "we're all basically screwed" & gave me Attorney's office to contact. #alfredangelo,” a third person said.

In a March press release, the company billed itself as “the world’s leading manufacturer, wholesaler and retailer of beautifully designed wedding gowns, bridesmaids and social occasion dresses.” The company was founded in 1933, according to its website.

Couple who lost wedding photos in fire get amazing surprise for 38th anniversary

A couple is thanking their daughter for a surprise their family will cherish for generations.

>> Need something to lift your spirits? Read more uplifting news

Jennifer and Timothy Bing tied the knot 38 years ago in Maryland, but all the photos from their wedding were destroyed in a fire at a pharmacy.

“I felt devastated. That’s the only wedding I had,” Jennifer Bing, 65, told ABC News.

Her daughter, Ashleigh Bing, decided to surprise her parents with something unforgettable for their 38th anniversary on July 7 — new wedding photos.

>> See the photos here

Ashleigh is a professional photographer and arranged a surprise photo shoot for her parents, complete with touching personal touches, including a framed wedding invitation from her parents’ big day — one of the only surviving mementos from their wedding.

Ashleigh picked out two gowns for her mom and reached out to a florist and a makeup artist. She kept it all a surprise until the day before the shoot.

“I told my parents that I needed them on Saturday, June 17. ... My mom kept asking me questions, but I would not tell her anything. I got great joy from her trying to figure it out,” Ashleigh told the Washingtonian.

The night before the shoot, Ashleigh showed her mom the dresses and told her she had to be ready for makeup at 5:30 a.m. the next morning.

“She cried, and could not believe it,” said Ashleigh.

The photo shoot was held outside the Washington National Cathedral and the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, D.C.

On the day of their anniversary, Ashleigh gave them an album of the special anniversary photos.

“She has made a wish come true of mine that I thought would never happen,” Jennifer Bing told ABC News. “She’s my favorite girlfriend in the whole wide world.”

Wedding crasher steals $2,000 worth of gifts from Florida bride

A Florida bride’s magical day turned into a nightmare after nearly all of her gifts were stolen.

Marilyn Shuman had her reception at the Sunset Grille at Little Harbor in Ruskin, Florida, and said “everything was perfect” until she spotted a woman she didn’t know, WFTS reported. 

“She was not a guest; I had no idea who she was. She approached me because I had been staring at her. She told me she was investigating the venue for her daughter," Shuman told WFTS. 

The woman allegedly stole all of Shuman’s gifts except three, which Hillsborough County deputies said totaled about $2,000, according to WFTS.

“We assumed that someone might have picked up all the gifts and cards from the table for us,” Shuman said of the moment she and her husband saw all the gifts were gone.

However, the thief made one mistake that might lead to her arrest. 

The woman took a photo and signed Shuman’s memory book. “It's going to seal her fate I hope,” Shuman told WFTS.

Love at 30,000 feet: Man proposes on flight from Atlanta

For Deepum Patel and his long-distance love, Neha Chakravarti, getting on a plane usually meant sad goodbyes and a painful separation.

>> Read more trending news 

The couple spent nearly two years flying back-and-forth from Atlanta, where Patel works, to Pennsylvania, where Chakravati attended dental school.

But last week, Patel took what had long been a sad ritual and replaced it with much happier memory. On a Delta flight from Atlanta to Boston, he asked Chakravati to be his wife.

Patel worked with the airline to set up the big moment at 30,000 feet.

Shortly after the plane reached cruising altitude, crews called Chakravati to the front of the plane to help with a staged medical emergency.

But instead of helping a sick passenger, she was surprised to hear the couple's favorite song. Patel joined her at the front of the plane asked her to "dance through life with him" before getting down on one knee.

Of course, an elated Chakravati said yes.

The couple's fellow passengers also got in on the sweet moment. Patel passed out cards in advance asking them to snap photos and videos. Delta provided champagne for travelers to toast to the future Mr. and Mrs. Deepum Patel and their fellow passengers shared stories about happy marriages and wished the couple luck.

After the celebration, the pilot read a statement Patel wrote over the plane's intercom:

“These two lovebirds have kept up a long-distance relationship with the help of Delta for nearly two years. The future groom has kindly asked me to remind you to call the special people in your life today and tell them how much you love them.”

The couple will continue on their planned three-week vacation to Iceland and Europe as an engaged couple.
