@lfranke: I’m not sure about the bead check but DB told me that when I bought my dress I needed to make sure I got alterations there simply because I couldn’t return it to get it steam cleaned as they wouldn’t be reliable for any problems that happened before it got brought in. I guess they’ve had people call in who couldn’t find someone to steam it after fixing it. Hope it helps.

DB told me that if anyone else (vendor wise – ie tailor, seamstress, pressing, steaming, etc) touched my dress that I would not be able to get my bead check and steaming at DB.  Bascially, the dress has to be in the identical condition that they sold it to you as.

I didn’t really care because I’ve heard such terrible things about DB’s tailoring and had a private tailor that my family has used for years and years.  I wasn’t letting DB do my tailoring despite not being able to get the steam/bead check.  Your tailor should be able to do a bead check for you and fix any loose ones for little to nothing.
