Yikes! I know how you feel about alterations! Mine were about that much too, but it is a LOT of work to do all the things you described. Its expensive, but it will be worth it. Alternatively, you could always try to shop around for alterations. There are a lot of talented seamstresses out there and I’ve found that often those that work independently (not part of the store) are actually better and cheaper. 

Honestly, I think you should get the slip. Your dress is beautiful now, but I do think that a bit of poof at the bottom would really give it a “Wow!” factor!

Good luck!

Basically what MrsLemonDrop said! ๐Ÿ™‚  My dress alterations also cost just about as much as yours did – sighs. ๐Ÿ˜›  But I think you’re going to look fabulous, and it will be worth it! Oh, and definitely the slip. Don’t worry, it’s going to be fantastic! ๐Ÿ˜€

You can find really cheap slips on both Ebay and Amazon, so search there! It doesn’t need to be anything special, just needs some tulle to give some volume. You should be able to find something for $20-40 easily.
