Actually because it is a corset it should not need to be taken in as much as if it were a zipper. Also because it’s not lace or another difficult material hemming should not be major, many tailors charge per layer. Also consider leaving the straps, one because the criss cross in the back is gorgeous but also tweaking the straps will be much less expensive than making it strapless which is a major change. Also I know Tea Length sounds like a good idea but they also come standard length as well so if youre not tall (like around 5’10 which is what most desigerns make for) it will still hit you at funny length and you’ll proabably still need to get it hemmed. I would say try sticking with what you have unless of course it isn’t your dream dress.
Also if you do decide to alter try to find a bridal seamstress not just a regular tailor. Especially if you can get a personal recommendation from another bride you know. Good luck!
P.S. Just an idea feel free to disregard but I might recommend having that flower removed from the front and adding a small belt to for a little sparkle and to further define your waist
