But she said that would end Friday when she left, and she didn't know the status of dresses still on order.

Brides from Virginia to California took to social media to vent their frustrations.

WJAR-TV reports that several brides contacted them, saying the location in North Attleborough, Massachusetts, called and told them to pick up their dresses as soon as possible due to the closure. Alfred Angelo bridesmaid customers in the same position will receive 20% off the current price of all bridesmaids dresses at David's Bridal.

The Alfred Angelo Bridal store near the Dayton Mall is closing, as is the national chain, according to national reports. That woman, too shaken to speak to 8News, said one employee slammed her arm in the door.

"I thought it has to be a joke", she said.

Store employees told News 6 they found out about the closure Thursday morning, but they started to become suspicious about a month ago.

"You're pulling on emotional heart strings and that's just not right", said Jones.

Brides across the country are anxious about their big day after being told that one of the world's largest wedding dress retailers has filed for bankruptcy. She saw the article on Syracuse.com Thursday afternoon and raced to the store to get her bridesmaid dress.

A store manager at the Mission Valley location told NBC 7 they will stop carrying the Alfred Angelo line, but all the dresses previously ordered will be provided.

"She said, 'The store's closed". Another groom said his bride is too upset to talk, but also has a dress there and can't get through to anyone.

"We've been through this kind of thing before, we know how to handle it and it's not a problem on our end", he said. "Their entire corporate office is empty", said bridesmaid Elyse Berger. Store officials say they're working on a backup plan if the retailer doesn't provide the dozens of dresses brides are now waiting on.

"They just need to reassure me if I'm still getting my dress".

Bridal stores around the nation like R.K. Bridal have offered discounts and other assistance those affected by the dress maker's shutdown.
