Be a Beautiful Princess Buttercup with Ideas for her Blue or her Bridal Movie Dress
Girls big and small love dressing up in a Princess Bride Costume and even more so if they've read the book by William Goldman or seen the fantasy movie with Buttercup and Westley. The sweet and beautiful Princess played by Robin Wright makes a beautiful bride, even though she doesn't actually want the prince but her simple farm boy Westley instead.
Dress up in her pretty blue dress or a stunning bridal outfit no matter what age you are and recreate the fantasy romance that you love. You'll discover some cute dressing up bridal and wedding costumes on this page that can be worn for everyday pretend play by young girls as well as Halloween and costume parties.

Princess Buttercup Costume from The Princess Bride Movie
A Medieval Fantasy Wedding Dress - Light Blue Medieval Style Gown in Velvet
This isn't an actual Princess Buttercup dress because there are no official ones to buy. You would either have to make your own costumes from scratch or buy something in a similar style - if you have a lot of money to spend, you can try etsy for a handmade custom costume to wear. I love this crushed velvet gown in an ice blue. Very fitting for a medieval, fantasy wedding and a cross between Buttercup's Blue Gown that she wears during the movie and also her Wedding Dress.
This has just the right medieval style for Buttercup's character.

How to Get the True Princess Bride Look
Some people visit this page just looking for a princess bride dressing up outfit but the majority of you want information and ideas on how to look like or dress like Princess Buttercup from The Princess Bride movie. You really will find it difficult to actually buy costumes that truly reflect the movie outfits. I've looked myself.
Princess Buttercup is best known for her Red Riding Costume which she is wearing whilst out horse riding before being kidnapped. If you're teaming up as a duo to make a Westley and a Princess Buttercup for Halloween, then her red costume which she is best known for in the movie is the classic choice. You can visit my detailed page on that:
If you need a Westley costume for a Halloween or Cosplay partner, there is also a great page on Westley's Man in Black or Dread Pirate Robert's outfit here:
Princess Buttercup wore a total of 7 outfits in the movie. She had her simple farming outfit, a pale peachy pink princess gown, her red riding gown, her bed robe, a pink gown, a blue gown and then her elaborate wedding gown. She is best associated with her red horse riding gown that she wears for a significant portion of the movie.
You can look at the detailed page with photos on Buttercup's outfits that I'm going to direct you to and then find a seamstress (unless you're handy with a needle yourself) who will make up a dress for you. Sometimes you can find custom made outfits on eBay or etsy too although they will come with a hefty price tag. Here's: The Costumer's Guide to The Princess Buttercup Outfits
A cheaper and less expensive option is this blue dress here.
Floral Wedding Tiara
Princess Buttercup wears a floral silver colored tiara as part of her wedding costume. A sparkling tiara can really set off a bridal dress if you want to emulate her bride look.
