A local bridal shop wants to help brides in need after national bridal retailer Alfred Angelo closed its doors unexpectedly.

Christen Schneider's owns Moon and Back Bridal in Lakewood. She explained that finding a wedding dress can be a difficult and expensive task for brides, but doing it under a time crunch is even tougher.

"We had a couple calls yesterday for people looking for last minute dresses. Last minute is rough there's so much more that goes into getting a dress that works,” said Schneider..

But now thousands of brides are living with this scenario after national bridal shop Alfred Angelo went bankrupt and shut down all of its stores last week. The move left brides who bought dresses or paid deposits with no options.

The closest location to Northeast Ohio is in Boardman. Schneider is offering help for local brides who have been affected by the closing.

"Anyone who has a contract and a receipt for an Alfred Angelo dress should bring it in when they come shopping. We can honor some of the money put toward that dress. We're doing 20 percent off the retail prices up to your full deposit,” said Schneider.

And she isn't the only one stepping up to help. According to its website, David's Bridal is also offering discounts for brides and bridesmaids across the country.

For last minute brides Schneider suggests buying a sample gown straight off the rack, or consider buying a pre-owned gown.

Schneider is also offering the jilted brides twenty percent of alterations.

“We know most people are stretching their budget for weddings so to find out a month before you have to pay for two dresses is not easy to do,” said Schneider.
