    Alfred Angelo, the bridal boutique that filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy last month, has indicated it will no longer make good on delivery of dresses ordered by brides at its now-closed stores across the country.

    A message posted on the Alfred Angelo website this week begins by noting that the bankruptcy trustee "greatly regrets the upset" caused by the July 14 bankruptcy filing. It goes on to cite logistical and financial difficulties in fulfilling outstanding deliveries.

    “While we have been successful in obtaining customer records and delivering many dresses and accessories for customers all over the country, even after the bankruptcy filing date, it has now become apparent that the logistical and financial strain of fulfilling each and every open order makes continuing that course of action no longer possible,” the statement reads. “Thus, to the extent any order has not been fully delivered to a customer, it shall have to remain unfilled.”

    Sixty-two Alfred Angelo stores were closed without warning following the bankruptcy filing, leaving brides and employees blindsided.

    On the door of the now-closed Frisco location, Alfred Angelo has posted the name and contact information for an attorney in Florida, where the company is based.
