OKLAHOMA CITY -- After Peggy's Bridal abruptly closed and left soon-to-be brides gownless, owner Orban Vannostran announced he would appear in court at a bankruptcy hearing. The brides looked forward to getting answers and hopefully their dresses, but Vannostran failed to show.

Vannostran filed the bankruptcy hearing to protect himself, but because he didn't show up, he could now face the angry brides in civil court.

Vannostran contacted the bankruptcy trustee Thursday, claiming he had mistaken the day of the hearing.

By law, the case has now been rescheduled for June 16 at 2 p.m. at 215 Dean A. McGee in room 119.

Anyone that feels the company owes them money can attend, as he may be able to answer questions.

Consumer Watch's Amanda Taylor attempted several times to contact Orban Vannostran, but he disconnected his phone and couldn't be reached.

Vannostran claims his daughter Deborah embezzled money from the company, forcing them to close their doors. Deborah has since fled to Florida where she remains under the radar of her family.

Frustrated customers are encouraged to file a complaint with the Attorney General's Office and a with their credit card company to recoup costs made with the credit card.
