I don’t think David’s Bridal will do dresses purchased elsewhere, and I personally wouldn’t recommend them for alterations–they did a poor job on my wedding dress and a bridesmaid dress I bought for another wedding. You might try weddingwire.com or theknot.com to see if you can find good reviews for local alterations.

I agree, even if they do do outside alterations do NOT take your dress to David’s Bridal. I would find a few seamstesses in your area and ask them for their opinions on how to alter the dress and the best way to do it without compromising the dress.
