Last week we were hit with the sudden news that Alfred Angelo had abruptly closed its doors. All stores, wholesale, and corporate offices have ceased operation. They closed approximately 60 stores leaving a lot of plus size brides-to-be desperate for answers and solutions.
Thankfully, we aren’t left without other options! Within the same week many of the plus size bridal boutiques that we’ve featured here were in the midst of sample sales that we shared with you and some even extended their sample sale in lieu of the closing.
So ladies have no fear we’re here to make sure that you still have options when shopping for your dream wedding gown. We’re spotlighting 5 plus size bridal boutiques that are here to save the day!
