Boutique donates free dresses to those affected by Alfred Angelo's closing

If the brides didn't pick up their orders, they were out of luck.

Alfred Angelo wedding gowns are sold in stores in Benton, Russelville, Clarksville, Fort Smith, Springdale and Jonesboro. "You just wanted to sit there and burst into tears because your daughter's easy part of the wedding isn't so easy".

To help those who might not get their dresses, some former brides are now offering up dresses for free - and member station KPCC in Southern California is using the #dressmatchmaker hashtag to orchestrate dress exchanges.

In a letter to customers, a lawyer for Alfred Angelo, Kimberly Redmond, wrote that the company would "encourage" the bankruptcy trustee to "finish and fulfill as many orders as possible", according to the Times report. "The company regrets that this action will have dramatic impact on you", Redmond wrote in the letter. Inside: the dress ordered from Alfred Angelo in June.

But on Friday, the retail chain shut its doors. Like other bridal companies, it has faced pressure from bridal fashion startups and traditional retailers pushing low prices.

"I was shocked because that was such an incredible blessing for Paul and I because we've been struggling to try and figure out how to pay for this whole wedding", said Stradley.

Meanwhile, competitors have been rushing to capitalise on the company's demise. They scrambled to get customers gowns they had ordered and told customers to take sample items they had on hand.

They also spend an average of more than $2,600 on a photographer, almost $2,000 on an event planner and $575 on a wedding cake, among other expenses.
