Review: The Bride Box

A Bride On A Budget received this box of items for the purpose of the review.

It was a little over the week before the wedding and a gift came for me in the mail from The Bride Box. The subscription service, if you haven't heard, is sent to brides monthly as a way to pamper and prepare them for their big day.

Since my big day was rapidly approaching, the lovelies at The Bride Box actually curated a personalized box for me to review.

Exciting.

The contents of the box came wrapped in blue tissue paper that matched the pop of blue in the logo on the brand's sticker. I've gotta be honest, it was a cute way to stick in "something blue" (even if that wasn't the brand's intention).

I opened The Bride Box and inside were nicely stuffed contents. I was really excited to see what was inside. I immediately noticed a coozie and rhinestone I Do shoe stickers. I took those out to see what else was contained inside.

In total, the box had: an I Do banner, a Bride to Be coozie, a trio of thank you cards, a Here Comes the Bride burlap bag, a mason jar travel mug, tip cards to help make your wedding smoother, and the aforementioned shoe stickers.

I immediately took the burlap bag and put it in an envelope to mail to my friend. She's getting married in three weeks and her color is blue, plus she's doing burlap everywhere she can. It's like that bag was made for her. Pete took the reusable mason jar mug (which says Happily Ever After) and has been using it all the time.

I had intentions of bringing the I Do banner with us to the wedding for staged photos on the beach. And it made it to the wedding but we had to rush our beach photos and take them earlier than expected because there was a storm coming, so the banner got left in the bag. Totally bummed because that would have been a really nice shot.

The trio of thank you cards was a nice touch too because when you're wedding planning, you have to thank everyone. We ended up making 19 thank you gifts. That's a lot of cards. Plus, I still need to send one to my seamstress. And then there are the thank you cards you send post-wedding. Yeah, it's a bunch. So it's nice to have this trio on hand, just in case.

The items were all really high quality, especially the coozie. It bums me out that it's white because I use coozies when we're out at the beach or the park or at concerts, and it'll get so dirty so quickly. In North Carolina, there is no time when I don't go out without a coozie in my purse, so this is definitely necessary -- I just wish it was black.

  3. I would LOVE to win these!!!! I would definitely keep them for myself and use them for our big day. We're getting married in almost exactly 4 months - November 8 - and still have lots of details to hammer out. I'm still needing my "something blue" and these would be perfect - and I could check something else off my To Do list! :)

    My sweetheart and I are having a Southern romantic vintage wedding, and getting married in South Mississippi. Our colors are lavender (using tons of real lavender we ordered from Europe to decorate with), eggplant, and wintergreen.

    Also - I had never heard of Bride Box!!! I will definitely have to check that out and feel certain I'll be getting a subscription. THANK YOU for posting about it!!

  37. Definitely keeping these. My fiance and I are deep in the throes of wedding planning, and I can use every bit of help for our upcoming nuptials. The Thank You cards especially would come in handy because family and friends will be playing an important role in our wedding. I love writing notes of gratitude, especially when folks pitch in with so much love. Also, I don't have anything blue yet, so the stickers would really come in handy!
