@Sarah EvO: I don’t know for sure, but my guess is that it CAN be altered and DB just won’t do it. 

My dress was from DB and I took it to an outside seamstress who salvaged fabric from some of the gathers and added a halter. Plus 2 bustles (normal and short one for dancing) all for $125 which I’m pretty sure is waaaaaaaaay cheaper than DB and they wouldn’t have done it anyway. 

So the point is, I think it can be done, just maybe take it to someone else. You can look for reviews online for a good seamstress and go from there. 

Good luck!

When I went there to look at dresses they told me they have in their contract that they are legally NOT allowed to “tamper” with the design of any dress they sell. Example:So if you want a bow cut off you have to do it yourself because they definitely wont. Hope that helps! 🙂

DB will not make changes to VW White gowns.  It can be done but somewhere else.

@AirForceFiance:  That is correct. Due to copyrighting and the the designer’s contracts, DB can not do any major alteration that changes the overall look of the gown. That’s why their sleeves clip on and they can’t/aren’t supposed to change necklines.

as soon as i read the title of this post i thought of this quote from bride wars: “you don’t alter a vera  to fit you, you alter yourself to fit vera!” anyway, hope you find someone to alter it!
