"She was in tears", this Maryland mother said about her daughter.

Dozens of other brides and bridesmaids received similar phone calls. Rush fees on alterations will be waived to help meet event dates within a tight timeframe, and alterations services will be offered for Alfred Angelo dresses as well at the regular price.

But two bridesmaids who live out of state may be out of luck. News reports across the country included accounts of brides attempting to get their dresses after stores suddenly closed.

"I'm not anxious about it", he said.

A few things important to mention: 8News tried to email the email address on the paper the store gave us and that is posted on the door, but the email did not go through.

"Panic, complete and utter disarray", said Julie Jones, one expectant bride who ordered several gowns from the store.

LPD said it did not make any arrests.

It is now being tested in Thailand and Australia, and Facebook is looking into expanding the beta further, it said in a statement. People can hide or report Messenger ads in the same way they can hide or report an ad in the Facebook News Feed or on Instagram.

Numerous brides to be took the news hard.

Facebook user Jessica Berry posted, "Can anyone tell me if they are sending dresses to Australia?"

Alfred Angelo's attorney has not yet released any statement over the development and it remains unclear when they would do so. "They have families that they have to take care of", she said. As of 8 p.m. Thursday, the North Attleboro store on Route 1 closed for good - but not without some uproar.

The sign on the door says it all. Some offices still had desks and supplies and framed posters of wedding dresses hung on the walls. "I had literally just spoken with the store on Wednesday evening who confirmed all the information", said Busboom. Another groom said his bride is too upset to talk, but also has a dress there and can't get through to anyone. "All were paid for".

FOX 5 reached out to the San Diego store and to the Florida law firm handling the bankruptcy case, Stearns Weaver Miller Weissler Alhadeff & Sitterson, for comment, but has not heard back.

To receive the discount, brides and their parties can visit any David's Bridal location and present an original Alfred Angelo branded receipt.

Sue Sturgis, president of Cause for Paws, said the dresses were donated by Ellynne Bridal.
