From what I can tell, it looks like a long train but not too much detail on it.  It should be easy for your seamstress to do.  I used to do bridal alterations.  You could either do a traditional, classic bustle on the top of the skirt with hooks and eyes, so it attaches near the seam in the waistline.  Otherwise, you could do French/under bustles with ribbons and ties underneath the skirt.  Both would look beautiful with your dress.  Really just depends on your preference.

My train was pretty long and I had a French bustle.

@taraesque:  I had an incredibly long train and had a seven point bustle put in and it stayed in all night and looked great. It was a relatively simple process with a color coding system for easy doing.
