Brides-to-be across the U.S. are feeling jilted today, after a nationwide bridal dress chain suddenly closed its stores after nearly 80 years in business.

On some of its shuttered storefronts, Alfred Angelo Bridal advised brides-to-be and their wedding parties to contact its lawyer via email.

According to ABC affiliate WZZM-TV in Grand Rapids, Michigan, Patricia Redmond, a lawyer for Alfred Angelo Bridal, said the company was planning to file for Chapter 7 bankruptcy to liquidate its assets.
