Each box comes with a card detailing the items included.

The Bride Box Subscription Review – October 2014 Tote

Allie Anderson Designs Tote – Value $30

I couldn’t find this exact tote on Allie Anderson’s etsy page, but I’m assuming the price would be the same for a different print.

The tote is completely lined and even has a detachable coin purse.

The Bride Box Subscription Review – October 2014 Mascara

Elizabeth Mott It’s SO Big Mascara – 4 ml Value $7

Lash Card – Value $5

I’ve tried this mascara before thanks to other subscription boxes, and it’s a good formula – not my all time favorite, but pretty good. I was most interested in these Lash Cards since I almost always get some mascara on my brow bone area when applying makeup. Here’s what they look like:

These are individually wrapped cardboard pieces shaped to work around the eye. They definitely work as a mascara shield, but it was weird for me to hold it while also applying mascara. I definitely can do a better job applying mascara when I’m not holding this card up at the same time. So in conclusion – not for me, but I think it may be a great solution if you’re getting your makeup done for your wedding. (You can hold the card while someone else applies the mascara).

This box also came with a card with ideas for combatting wedding stress, and a discount for Sonar Travel.

Verdict: The retail value of this box is about $42 – a little more than the $35 a month cost. From what I’ve seen over the months I’d say this box is more about the curation and presentation than the value. I think it’s a good gift for a bride – the presentation definitely makes it feel special.

What do you think of The Bride Box?

  1. Today I received the “bride box”, my best friend had said I would be getting another engagement surprise around this time of the month via snail mail. So, I rushed to open it not knowing what to expect, I felt so excited to receive such a thoughtful gift. A plastic water bottle, sample- size massacre (that you get free when you purchase make-up), paper massacre shields…, a card, gift tags, and “I do” rhinestone decals. I thought to myself that is was adorable, I won’t use most of it but was a thoughtful gift. After calling to say thank you, she exclaimed “That is all you got! There must be some mistake!” According to the card that was inside my box there is a picture of a tote, nail polish, the plastic water bottle and massacre. Am I missing something in the “bride box”?

  2. Yikes. I guess they can say the tote bag is $30 but honestly I’ve gotten similar ones free.

    I’d be super embarrassed if I gave someone that as a gift!!

  3. I agree with everyone above, I would not have been happy with this box. @Jenni I also just ordered Gilt City offer for Bride Box this past week and am a bit worried too when it read “special edition Gilt City box” I really hope it is a decent box of product.

  4. I am getting married at the end of December and purchased the Gilt City offer for Bride Box a few days ago as a gift for myself. While nothing in this box is super exciting – the tote is cute, but I would only use it for our honeymoon – I’m interested to see what come in my box. When I emailed them about redeeming my code I was told I will receive a “special edition Gilt City box” – which makes me a little nervous.

  5. Those lash cards are great for catching sparkely eyeshadow fall out when used under the eye!

  6. This box doesn’t look that fantastic, nothing about it says Honeymoon to me. Maybe it’s just me..

    • I was thinking the same thing. I’d be annoyed if I spent $30 on that. I don’t think that’s especially well curated. When I think of honeymoons, I’d want cute lingerie, not a tote bag and mascara
