Bustle possible issue?

Is there a wrong way to bustle a gown? I’m sorry if this is a dumb question. However, I started looking at other brides in my same gown and they did completely different bustles. I trusted a highly rated tailor to do the bustle best suited for the dress.. didn’t really give a specific “style” however now I am second guessing it doesn’t look right and our date is 6-11! Can someone ease my mind and make me feel a little better 😅 The wedding stress is getting to me! The only pictures I have is before she tailored it with the pins.

    I don’t know that there is a wrong way, but I think this looks beautiful! Very flowy.

    There are a bunch of different styles, but I think that looks really lovely! I'm not a super big fan of bustles, and that is very flattering to your dress. And maybe it's just the lighting, by my goodness, that lace is incredible.

    Thank you! That made me feel so much better. I didn’t realize there are different types of bustles until after my appointment. The train is long and I never wanted a bustle (we are getting married on the beach) but the lace got me when I tried it on! Thank you again for your feedback and time.

    You look amazing in your dress. Yes there are different bustles like your style won’t go with my gown so they had to do the French style for me, but you look stunning and it goes well with your body for that type you have.

    I totally agree! I have always preferred a French bustle but this is the first time I think an American bustle looks best and stunning!

    I love the way your bustle looks. If you want, you can ask the seamstress to show you what it would look like with other types of bustles. I do love it though

    You could always ask your alterations specialist if they'd be able to do a different type of bustle. Maybe they could, maybe not, and it may need to be rushed, but there's no harm in asking if there's something you think you'd like better. But I think yours looks great as is, and I love the lace!
