"They've been asking for weeks - because they knew changes were happening - if they were going out of business, and they were told no we're not going out of business, everything is fine", said Martin.

'We are all no longer employees of Alfred Angelo with immediate effect'.

For brides-to-be shopping at Alfred Angelo Bridal in Manchester, getting their hands on their dream dresses turned into a bit of a nightmare on Thursday.

Other retailers were stepping up to help. Cassidy said the situation is a little complicated because she has already paid a $1,200 deposit.

Stockists are also advised to contact the British Bridal Suppliers Association (BBSA) for advice on how to proceed.

However, it's not clear what will happen to ordered items that had not yet been delivered to the store.

Alfred Angelo has designed and sold wedding gowns for the better part of a century; it was founded in 1933 and grew to include 60 specialty stores.

Google's Doodle honours Swedish scientist Eva Ekeblad's work with potatoes
She also discovered that potatoes could be used to make potato flour by cooking, crushing and drying potatoes to create flour. Raised in comfort among the nobility, Eva was married at just 16 to Count Claes Claesson Ekeblad, a Councillor of the Realm.

In San Antonio, Texas, police told television station WOAI that dispatchers received 911 calls about the closure.

The company has yet to comment but multiple news reports have indicated that a bankruptcy filing is inevitable.

At Alfred Angelo's headquarters in Florida, employees were reportedly seen leaving the company's corporate office Thursday "en masse", according to the Palm Beach Post.

Busboom said she went to the Alfred Angelo Facebook page and found posts from other brides who claimed they've heard rumors of bankruptcy. Losing your job and dealing with hundreds of p****d off brides'. Well, this is happening-in real life!-to tons of brides and bridesmaids, right now. The company has yet to issue a formal statement regarding the closures as of early Friday afternoon.

But grooms-to-be may now conjure a very different, angry image when they think of Alfred Angelo.

In a March press release, the company billed itself as "the world's leading manufacturer, wholesaler and retailer of beautifully designed wedding gowns, bridesmaids and social occasion dresses".

Many other future brides voiced their anger on social media.
