One panicked bride entered the Tulsa-area store on Thursday, and left with a free dress.

The Delray Beach, the Florida-based company did not issue a prior warning to its employees about the move, an Alfred Angelo store manager told the Wall Street Journal. David's Bridal made a statement on Facebook saying that customers could "upon presentation of your original branded Alfred Angelo retail receipt, receive special discounts on new wedding and bridesmaid dresses".

"They've kinda crushed my daughter's dreams, now I don't know what we're going to do", said Kerri Ross, whose daughter's wedding is two months away.

"Very angry. I mean, my dress can be replaced, but the bride's dress can't", Cotter's future mother-in-law Denice Hatch said. "So I either get to not be in my sister's wedding or be the only one wearing something different". Now she doesn't think she will ever see it again and her wedding is 12 weeks away.

Sands says the brides expressed concerns that they wouldn't get the dresses they paid for.

Bridal gown retailer Alfred Angelo planned to close all its stores across the country Thursday and file for bankruptcy, according to multiple media reports. And as social media buzzed of a rumored bankruptcy, the bridal retailer remained silent.

Courtney Johnson, who lives in downtown Richmond and is the maid of honor for Pinilis, followed a FedEx driver to the back of the store when she found the store employee. "Now i have to hope the dresses get shipped to the bridesmaids while I scramble to find dresses that match". Slaybaugh asked once more.

First, they said, the entire store was 50 percent off.

Melisa Rothstein said she was told to at the store at 6 p.m., but when she showed up the doors were already locked.

"It was super frustrating", she said.

So exactly how much money are brides out of? Sales rep said "we're all basically screwed" & gave me Attorney's office to contact. They were wonderful to everybody.

"I want to cry, I just want to cry", said Ross.

Angelo's closed up shop after she prepaid for three bridesmaids dresses.

So, 8News stopped by that seamstress' house, but someone home closed the blinds on us. Employees did not answer the phone at the chain's store in Broward County. No one responded to knocks on the store's door.
