After national chain Alfred Angelo Bridal suddenly closed its doors, David's Bridal is the knight in shining armor, so to speak, for brides out of a dress.
The company's offering a discount to anyone who purchased a wedding or bridesmaid dress from Alfred Angelo but didn't get it. Thirty percent off wedding dresses, twenty percent off bridesmaids. Plus, it’s waiving rush fees on alterations.
Also helping bride’s walk down the aisle, locally owned "Say Yes to Her Dress" in Mentor. It’s offering up to 50% off dresses.
For both companies, all you have to do is show your Alfred Angelo receipt.
