Last weekend I attended my 2nd Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic and had the time of my life. I went last year and it’s seriously always such a fun time. Last year I had general admission tickets and remember looking over at the VIP Rosé Garden section, and promising I would be on that side next year. Seriously guys, you have to speak things into existence. So fast forward to a year later (and not only am I on the Rosé Garden side, but I got to go to the event as one of Veuve Clicquot’s GUESTS. Never in a million years did I think that would happen. I was willing to spend $450 of my own money on a Rosé Garden ticket this year, because of how badly I wanted to go. SO THANK YOU, Veuve Clicquot for gifting me tickets. To say that my girlfriends and I had a B L A S T, is an understatement.
Honestly my favorite part of this year was sitting at our table alllll day, drinking champagne, seeing everyone’s AMAZING outfits and gossiping away.The girls that I was with were SO much fun, and we had the best time. One of the girls is a blogger that I have been friends with on Instagram for a while now, but it was SO nice to finally meet in person. I’m 99% sure that the people at the table next to us were tired of us after five minutes, but like it’s totally fine.
I’ve been getting some questions about tickets and wanted to explain the main differences between general and VIP from my personal experience. General admission tickets are a few hundred dollars cheaper, however, the experience isn’t quite the same, in my opinion. Unless you get there super early or you buy a fast pass, you will be waiting in a line to get in. I got there at a decent time last year, but it was still pretty crowded and SUPER HOT. The weather this year was amazing and overcast. Obviously, most people go to take photos, so I feel like I spent most of my time waiting in lines to take pictures with all of the backdrops. You also have to bring blankets (or buy one) if you want to sit down, because there are only a few benches and chairs. However, it was still super fun to experience the event for my first year. I will say I enjoyed the food and different photo-ops on the general admission side.
Honestly, I highly recommend opting for Rosé Garden tickets if you can swing it. This year, we got there around the same time as last year, glided through security, got our wristbands and were on the shuttle up to the event in less than 15 minutes. So ideal. One important thing to note is that Veuve Clicquot provides each Rosé Garden attendee with a full bottle of delicious Rosé. Risky? Yes. Was I a strong advocate of this move? Absolutely. They also give you lunch (I’ve included a photo of the lunch menu in this post), and there are a ton of cute tables to sit and hang with your girls at all day. There were also a bunch of photo ops and barely a line for them. One of my favorite things about the Polo Classic is that they put the Veuve Clicquot letters up in the hills, similar to the Hollywood sign. Last year I was totally bummed because you couldn’t see the letters from the other side, so I made sure to snap a ton of pictures this year.
The Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic is one for the books. I’ve always loved glamour and life without limits. I created Chanfetti as a creative outlet, to share my style, beauty and travel adventures. Champagne and confetti are two of my FAVORITE things. Combine the two and thus Chanfetti was BORN. The Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic is one of my favorite events and the perfect excuse to dress up and drink all day. SO on brand. I’m also working on a Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic vlog, but let’s be real, this will be my first vlog and my editing skills aren’t the best, so updates to follow on thatttt. Thank you again to Veuve Clicquot for having me, and I am SO excited for next year.
