I don’t have any pictures of bustles, but there was a great thread a couple of days ago. You might want to search it because it had lots of pictures of different bustles. Good Luck!

A suggestion when choosing bustles.. every wedding I’ve gone to where the bride has a single point bustle, the bustle has broken.  So if you end up having a single point bustle, bring a sewing kit or some safety pins.

I will second what Gilneas said about the single point bustle. I loved the look and the seamstress told me she was sure it would work out.  However, it broke after I had it bustled for about 10 minutes! I sat down to sign the marriage license and riiiiiip!  I safety pinned it, but it was just too heavy for the pins.  As a result I spent most of my reception with my train slung over my arm.  It was okay, but if given the choice now, I would have done something else.

Just something to keep in mind.

Mine is actually going to do the single point, but have the ties for the under tie as a backup!
