Wedding dress retailer Alfred Angelo declared bankruptcy on Friday, closing their 60 retails stores and leaving many brides distraught as it became unclear whether they would receive their dresses or get a refund.
Fortunately for the desperate couples, social media sprang into action. Women across the country have been using the hashtags #AlfredAngelo and #DressMatchMaker to offer to loan out their own wedding dresses.
Some companies have been offering discounts to Alfred Angelo customers affected by the bankruptcy, or waiving rushed delivery fees.
In a statement, Alfredo Angelo urged brides to email email@example.com to check their order status.
"We will post additional information regarding the status dresses on this website as it becomes available," they added. "We apologize for the inconvenience and hardship resulting from this event."
And it looks like some brides have already had their special day saved.
Social media can be awesome at times.
