@Shantly07: I’ve just taken a look at your dress, it’s gorgeous and nice to see something different. I bustled mine and like you it was something I was worried about. I don’t know how a tulle skirt would be bustled, you may find some tips on this thread

Bustle for tulle dress?

I agree, I love the way your dress lays.  It’s not poofy like most tulle dresses are.  I really think you’ll need an over bustle with several points (like the last picture on that thread from CatyLady).  It’ll be visible, but not too much.  The buttons that go along the waistline would blend in with your beaded top and could be covered by the sash as well.  The completely invisible bustle where the train is basically inverted, I don’t think would work well for a tulle gown.  Although I’ve never tried it, so you could always ask!
