Sharon bridal boutique files for bankruptcy

Posted: Updated:
SHARON, Pa. -

Update: Bling Bridal has announced on its Facebook page that the boutique is filing for bankruptcy. 

The Facebook post said the following: "I am writing to inform all customers that Bling Bridal will be closing and filed chapter 7 bankruptcy. I am so sorry for any trouble that this has caused. Everything will be auctioned and the money will be dispersed. Again I am so sorry. I will be notifying all the brides by phone in the next day or so. No items will be delivered."


Some local brides are not happy with a Sharon bridal boutique, Bling Bridal. 

The brides say there have been several attempts at contacting the boutique to pick up dresses and they haven't had much luck.

Jennifer Munholand's wedding is just over two weeks away but she is worried now that her 5 bridesmaids remain without dresses for her special day.

She says the cost of each dress was between 190 and 215 dollars. 

"They told us they would be in June sometimes which is fine because the wedding is August 11th. Now, we've tried to contact them in multiple ways. We tried to call them, they haven't answered their phone. The only thing we've gotten from them is a Facebook message response," Munholand says.

She says the bridal boutique said they would arrive in June, but their response has changed over the past two months.

21 News talked with Munholand's bridesmaids on the phone who say the same. 

One bride told us that she is not only concerned about her bridal party's fall-colored dresses but the Tuxes the groomsmen ordered to match.

Munholand and others tell us when they post comments on Blind Bridal Boutique's Facebook page they get deleted. Munholand says, "All of the comments were at first nice and then they started to get angry because this is your special day, you've dreamed about it your whole life."

A reporter from 21 News attempted to call and reach someone at Bling Bridal several times but no one has answered the phone.

A sign on the boutique door says the shop will be closed from July 21 to July 28.

The note on the boutique door states, "Bridesmaid dresses are shipping late! Please send us your brides name, your name, and your address. We are having them shipped directly to you for faster service. Please send it thru FB, Text it to (724) 685-9076, or through our website on the contact page. Please do this ASAP to ensure you receive your dresses on time!! We are sorry for any inconveniences."

21 News contacted the designer of Munholand's bridesmaid's dresses, Christina Wu in Florida. She tells us the dresses are made and Bling Bridal Boutique has not paid for them.

The business also deleted 

An employee who deals with customer service at the House of Wu says the women are being helped by another bridal boutique. Employees would not say whether Bling Bridal paid them for the dresses and stated that is confidential information.

We reached out to Bling Bridal through Facebook, Messenger, and text but no comments have been returned.
