I think it depends on where you are, but my alterations were about $700 and I didn’t have anything major done to my dress- just the sides taken in a little, cups sewn in, and a french bustle. So, based on my experience, I’d say buy the $200 dress and be done. Maybe you should look for a seamstress, though, to get an idea what it would cost where you live.

hemming, two bustles, and taking it in about a size will come to about $350 for me.

Altering my neckline and taking in was $130 for my one dress. Hemiming and taking in and bustle was $160 on my other. I would say shop around for a seamstress! Then you can do whatever you want! 🙂
