renwoman:  Unless you are doing pre-ceremony photos, don’t put your dress on that early.  Save if for the last moment.  Wedding dresses are heavy and warm, and the less time you have it on, the less ways you can potentially ruin it.   I was exausted by the end of my wedding night just standing up in my dress.  I also had some small flaws on my dress with in five minutes of putting it on.  I kissed lipstick onto my DH, rubbed it off his lips, and then put my hands on my dress.  Not noticable unless you were really close to it, but still not what you really want to do.   I would help D with all the last touches for the reception (it will go faster with two people), and then run back and put on your dress during the last minute touch time. 

If D can go with you to your final fitting, bring her along.  Most stores and semestresses will go over how to tie-up, strap in, or what not to your dress with who will be helping you.

Honestly, it looks like with some fanangling you could get it to work… but the main problem I see is that you haven’t given yourself enough time to get ready. Not sure if you’re diy-ing your hair and makeup but the standard time allotment for pros is 45 min per girl per service… and 1 hour to 1hr 15min per service for the bride.  No way I could do my own hair in 35 min or makeup in 20.  I would get up at 9 and get coffee asap… then try to have hair and makeup done by 12:15 to put on your dress.  Just a suggestion.

renwoman:  Haha of course you can do it at the same time… but I definitely would try to add some buffer time in there just in case there’s a “hairtastrophe” lol
