If you’re not going to try to dance in your dress, I don’t think that you need to bustle it. I kept mine un-bustled for a long time and walked around in it, etc with no problem (other than that the train got dirty from being outside).

I would not try to bustle it yourself unless you have a dressmaker dummy or someone around your size to wear it while you bustle it and you have some sewing experience. From looking at the dress (which is gorgeous!) I think that it would be sort of complicated to bustle. A one-point American bustle (which is the simplest type) wouldn’t really fit this dress, and I wouldn’t want to attempt a French bustle unless I knew what I was doing.
