I am clueless on how I can possible bustle this. I am sure that when I go into a seamstress she will have some ideas but I would prefer to go in with some thoughts of my own and Google is failing me. Part of the problem is all of the detailing in the train. I don’t want to hide it all. Any ideas? (Pictures are always helpful if you have them)
These are pictures of me and the model. They give slightly different views of the train.

My bustle isn’t near as long as yours, but it is semi-long. I am getting a French bustle on mine. Yours would need to have more points than mine, but I think it would look very nice. I am sorry, but I don’t have a picture of my bustle because my gown is at the seamstresses right now and I didn’t take any pictures of it when she was showing it to me. Here is a picture of my train and here is a link to some French bustle pictures. This site also has a ton of pictures of other types of bustles and a wealth of other information.

either a french or ballroom bustle would be your best bet.

Have you considered a reception dress?

@EleanorRigby: I don’t like the idea of a reception dress. I spend all that money and time finding the perfect wedding dress to only wear it for an hour at most? Not for me. But thanks for the thought! If all else fails there is always that option.

I had a cathedral link train and had a french bustle. I believe mine had 6 points if I remember right. Since your gown is very ornate, you’ll want your seamstress to try to “showcase” this!
This link has a ton of examples:

I am thinking an american bustle might help show off the detail a little…
