I bought my ceremony dress back in April when I was visiting my family for Easter, and received it a few weeks ago. I don't have any pics of it on me because 1) my mom took terrible pictures when I bought it and 2) I have no idea how to do up the corset back by myself.
I've walked around the house holding the back together w/ my hands and I love it. However, it is super hot compared to at the store where they had the AC blasting. Also, my resort has stairs leading to the ceremony area and with this dress being a mermaid I'm going to have to practice walking down stairs w/ constricted legs.

I bought the dress out of state so they just mailed it to me. It's from a chain that has a location in my city, so can I take it there for alterations? I thought (based on tv) that it was supposed to stay at the store until the alterations so I feel like I don't know what to do with it now that it's in my house. How early before the wedding should you start the alterations process?
