Pretty much any dress you buy will have to be altered.  This is true for just about every bride out there.  I would see how long it takes the stores to order the dresses you are interested in (mine took 2 months to get in) and order a size larger if you are worried about weight gain based on your weigh when you purchase.  Its easier to take a dress in then let it out, but most dresses can be altered either way about 2 sizes.

I think you should go in November, since most of dresses Take from 2-4 months or so to arrive, and about your loosing/gaining weight  you can totally get your dress altered to fit you perfectly  and lace up back it’s not hard to do, just takes a lil more time to do then zipper lol

I would make sure that you have a final fitting a couple of weeks out from the wedding. Ask your store/seamstress what’s the latest you can have a fitting before the wedding.

Definitely go corset back! They can help you go up or down a couple of whole sizes! This will ease your worry on the day.

Corsetted dresses can be sized pretty easily! Good luck 🙂
