In our humble opinion, if you want more guest access and some pretty fabulous perks, you’ll want to upgrade to a VIP ticket. You’ll be bestowed with a complimentary glass of champagne and 20% off exclusive merch that can only be found at The Queen’s Ball.
Before you venture into this dreamy experience, plan which photo ops you’ll want to take part in during the ball … if not all of them! A few of our favorite photo moments include the Wisteria tunnel, the Queen’s Throne, Madame Delacroix’s Modiste, and the Painting Studio, where you can take a beautiful 18th-century-inspired digital photo.
Since the stunning Bridgerton experience lasts ninety minutes, everything is timed, and the evening moves rather quickly, so just as Eloise Bridgerton yelled for Daphne in season 1 telling her that she must make haste, you’ll want to do the same! Make it a priority to get in line quickly for these stellar photo ops and experiences once you arrive at the ball!
This Bridgerton soirée is the perfect chance to come decked out in an over-the-top ensemble, but since there’s no specific dress code, you can also be comfortable if that’s what you prefer. It’s all about expressing your personal style! Many guests have even gotten creative, finding exquisite looks at their local thrift shops, so the sky’s the limit when it comes to dressing for this special night out. It’s important to note that while many guests enjoy dressing up in extravagant frocks, you don’t have to … all you really need to attend the experience is your royal attitude, which is enough for the Queen’s court!
If you want to spruce up your look, think about picking up some exclusive Bridgerton merchandise you won’t find anywhere else but at this thrilling ball, including clothing items, delicious tea, and of course, gorgeous Regency-era inspired makeup by Pat McGrath Labs. Additionally, American Express® Card Members can receive 20% off merchandise, food, and drinks. Expedited entry is available for the Card Member and up to (3) guests.
Want to add a bit of bling to your look? Get the Finishing Touches package that comes with a tiara and a fan. These items will complete your ensemble and make great keepsakes, so you’ll never forget this magical night.
If you think you’ll need a pick-me-up during the ball, treat yourself by pre-purchasing these delicious treat boxes. The Sweet Treats Box has a decadent red velvet muffin, macarons, and blueberry & strawberry balsamic pipette. Or enjoy a Savory Treats Box with mini brie, sliced charcuterie meat, cheddar point, and a marinated tomato. There’s also a vegan option with large artichoke hearts, sun-dried tomato, Queen olives, assorted crackers, and red grapes. You won’t want to be famished at this fête, so plan accordingly!
The Bridgerton experience is the perfect place to let loose and dance the entire night away to songs like Beyonce’s “Single Ladies” and “Uptown Funk” by Bruno Mars. But to really enjoy it, you’ll want to think about wearing comfier shoes so you can hit the dance floor all night long while still looking fab. We suggest leaving the sky-high stilettos at home!
Besides focusing on your look to catch the eye of Queen Charlotte, and the rest of the NYC court, consider participating in the most magical parts of the experience to turn heads. Don’t miss the chance to bow to your Queen, which is, in our opinion, one of the best ways to get her attention.
If you selected the VIP ticket, you’d already have enjoyed your bubbly upon arrival, but the Queen’s Ball also has some stellar cocktails. After you promenade through the vibrant floral lavender tunnel, we suggest you make a stop at the bar to try out these delicious handcrafted libations lovingly inspired by the sultry series, such as the delightful “Lady Bridgerton,” “Whistledown & Dirty,” and “Bridgerton Fashioned.”
If you want to attend the ball when it may be less crowded, generally, that would be the afternoon session instead of one in the evening. After the ball, imagine how fun it would be to go to an extravagant dinner or enjoy decadent drinks all dressed in your Regency finest.
One of the most unique parts of the experience is learning some of the choreographed period dances, which you can do after you perfect your bows and curtsies to the Queen, or learn some epic dance moves from the bee in the ballroom. Of course, if you just want to spectate from the sidelines, you can do that too!
Exuberant live musicians play the best pop hits from the iconic Bridgerton soundtrack, and you get to take it all in. Prepare to be wowed as your favorite tunes play in the background as you’re dancing the night away. They sure do rile up the crowd in our experience!
While the fête is one where you’ll dance and sip delicious cocktails, if you are a lover of the theater, you won’t want to miss the passionate performances guests can enjoy in the grand ballroom. The exquisite couple waltz and twirl their way around the black-and-white checkered stage showcasing inspiring theatrical dances.
One of the best parts of the night has to be when the Queen chooses the Diamond of the evening and celebrates them while the rest of the attendees rejoice in the spectacular moment.
