The Bride Box Subscription Review – October 2014
The Bride Box is a monthly wedding subscription box for brides. Each box includes a variety of items – everything from favor ideas, to bridal shower and wedding decor, to beauty items, and bachelorette party accessories.
This box was sent to us for review purposes. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).
The Subscription Box: The Bride Box
The Cost: $35 a month
The Products: a bridal box full of gifts to help you plan, prepare and pamper for your day of bridal bliss.
Each box comes with a card detailing the items included.
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.
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.
