I would wear a longline bra and a ball gown or extra large crinoline.

By The Way, that dress is gorgeous!

How heavy is the dress? 

If it’s not that heavy, or the bodice is tight enough to hold the dress up, you may be able to just stitch bra cups into the dress.

If it’s super heavy and/or you are worried about it falling down (nobody wants to be the bride who is contantly wrangling her dress up!) then I too would recommend the long-line bra.  That way the dress can be stitched to it, or you can hook/eyes stitched onto the dress and bra so that the dress can be attached to the bra and stay up.

Your seamstress can probably give you some useful advice.

Does the dress have enough structure of its own?  If so, can you just have bra cups sewn in?  That way, you don’t have to wear anything else underneath if you don’t want!

I’d agree with the above posters that a crinoline (the fuller the better!) and stitched in bra cups or a corset style strapless undergarment (depending on how much slimming/coverage/control you want) would be the way to go.

That’s a fantastic dress!

Part of it depends on how supported you need to be.  If you need more than cups sewn in, i would HIGHLY recommend this as a good excuse to go to a specialty bra shop and really get measured and fitted by a pro.
