Maybe you could set the display for everything to hidden. Then when an
element at the bottom of the page loads, have it change everything to
visible. If you put the object at the very bottom of the page, it should
be one of the last things to load.
Alternately, you could split the form into multiple pages so it doesn't
take so long to load. It sounds like this is an issue as much as
anything: impatient visitors clicking on things while they wait for the
form to finish loading.
