Bustle for short train on trumpet gown?

In my picture, I am barefoot and pretty close to the edge of the step, plus everything will be up a half inch or so once the straps are shortened. So, there's not much train, but some.

How do I bustle this? DB says I won't need it. While no dancing at reception, I have full intentions to go run around bars after, so really don't think I can get away without a bustle. MIL and step mom will be the ones helping to get it up. I don't think a single point will be secure enough for running around after.

    I would probably just do an over bustle like this one:


  • I think a simple on like above would work. I'm with ypu, I would want to hike that train up if bar hopping afterwards

    Definitely get one so that people aren't stepping on your train. A simple over bustle should be fine, but the seamstress should be able to show you multiple options so you can pick what you like best.

    You should bustle that dress.  It's just long enough where you will be stepped on all evening.
