Women Are Giving Away Their Wedding Dresses For Free After Alfred Angelo Went Bust

By Mark Pygas

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. 

One woman generously posted "Any women in the SoCal area that need a wedding dress ASAP bc of closing, I will lend you mine!" on Twitter.
