David’s Bridal Says “I Do” to Chapter 11 Bankruptcy Filing
David’s Bridal, Inc., the country’s largest wedding dress retailer, filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in the District of Delaware this morning, under case Number 18-12635 (LSS). According to reports from USA Today, the company plans to operate its 300 stores and stay in business.
Unlike its competitor, Alfred Angelo, which filed for bankruptcy protection in 2017 and left brides and grooms standing at the altar without their garb, David’s Bridal has assured customers that all orders will arrive on time and that any bridal appointments will not be impacted.
The company has filed a plan and disclosure statement and has a hearing on First Day orders teed up for tomorrow, November 20, 2018 at 1 pm before the Court.
