Altering Brand

I just got my dream dress. I'm beyond happy... but there is one minor issue. It doesn't quite fit. I am just a little too large for the bust of the dress as-is... or a little long in the shoulder, I don't know. However, if I unbutton the straps, it fits just fine, with breathing room, and it just sits a tiny bit lower on my chest. Since there is an extra 3 inches of fabric in the straps, I figure I can just move the buttons down, and problem solved. But I'm really nervous to do it!

So, my question tonight is, would you alter a brand piece? How much alteration would you be willing to do? (moving a button is little, adding panels and such seems like a much bigger undertaking!) And what conditions would need to be met for you to consider it? What about repairing damage on a brand piece?
