Our Story
A Family Affair


Alfred Angelo, one of the world's largest manufacturers and retailers of bridal gowns, was founded in 1933 by Alfred Angelo Piccione in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Soon joined by his wife, fashion designer Edythe Vincent Piccione, together they envisioned the market for affordably-priced wedding attire that would retain a custom-made look.

For 45 years they worked together and made Alfred Angelo the most recognized bridal name in the America. The company grew from a small custom design studio into a major design and manufacturing business. Their children who were raised in the world of bridal apparel, continued the legacy and expanded it to the worldwide business it is today.

With their talent, hard work and vision, the family grew Alfred Angelo into one of the most successful, globally recognized bridal brands in the world, employing thousands of people on four continents.

Today Alfred Angelo still operates with the same level of trust and care upon which it is founded.
