Crudd49:  Don’t worry about it too much.  You have a corset which can help you adjust your size VERY easily.

Also…DB is not the only place for alterations. They are limited to what they can and will do so if needed, find someone else to do the alterations if they give you an problems. 

I wanted my 1 BM dress to be shortened to tea length and regardless of the dress, they had an automatic “they don’t do that” response.

It just may cost you more money but someone can fix it for you I’m sure.

I would  not use David’s Bridals alterations.  They are expensive and not very well done generally.  I work at a very nice bridal boutique.  I have seen our seamstresses take sample gowns from a 12 down to a 6.  An average alteration price at our shop is between $150-$300.  Take your gown to a local alterations place and see what they say.

I lost 40 pounds and was able to alter my dress through a different shop and it only cost me 100 dollars!  Where are you located?
