First, congrats on getting your dress! Yay!


My suggestion would be to have it cleaned first and buy a dress bag for it. That should help keep it clean once you’ve hada chance to clean it. 

I hear that dresses can yellow if they’re exposed to a lot of heat, so keeping it in a dark, cool and dry place is probably best until you get closer to the wedding.

Finally, I know a lot of brides try to get into shape before the wedding which may change their measurements. If this is so, perhaps hold off on getting the alterations until just a few months before the wedding (2-3?). You’ll hav to do a final fitting a week or two before your big day anyhoo. (Though I don’t think it hurts to find a good tailor in the meantime!)
