My store is holding on to the dress for me until alterations in June and they will keep it until the last fitting a week before my wedding!

I think that is horribly inconvenient for you to hold on to your dress. I would ask them about it!

If I would have done alterations on site, they would have held my dress for me all the way until the wedding.  The store had a policy that once the dress left the store, they would not take it back just in case of damage.  So if you’re going to do alterations on site, make sure to talk to them before they ship your dress.

Most places keep the dress during alterations.  Not sure how they can make the alterations if they want you to take the dress.
