Studio Wed Box Subscription Review - April 2015 Info

The box comes with a card detailing the items included, and they also have a promotional card for Newly Wish.

They also included tips for creating a registry.

Studio Wed Box Subscription Review - April 2015 Lemon

Naiad Soap Arts Lemon Poppy Seed Sugar Whipped Soap – 2 oz Value $3

I wasn’t sure what sugar whipped soap was – but it turns out it is basically a scrub.

And this one smells exactly like Lemon Poppy Seed!

Studio Wed Box Subscription Review - April 2015 Candles and Matches

Paddywax Library Jane Austen Tin Candle – Value $8

Illume Matches – Value $5

Studio Wed Box Subscription Review - April 2015 Candle

I love these Paddywax tin candles! I think I have a few now thanks to subscription boxes, and a gorgeous book of matches is always useful!

Studio Wed Box Subscription Review - April 2015 Cutting Board

Brownlow Gifts Bamboo Cutting Board Gift Set – Value $13

I like when wedding boxes include favors that are actually useful!

Studio Wed Box Subscription Review - April 2015 Jewel

Stauer Royal Pear Pendant – Value $29

This piece came with a sticker listing it as “bonus bling.” I’m not sure exactly what to make of it since it isn’t listed on the card and is a pendant piece without a chain, but no complaints for bonus items!

Studio Wed Box Subscription Review - April 2015 Samples

Botanical Bars Lip Balm – Value $3

Donnicharm Charm + Coupon

These two pieces were also listed as bonus items! The Botanical Bars lip balm is a very moisturizing sweet peppermint flavor. (They offer label customization for wedding gifts).

When I saw this card with a charm attached, I first thought they sold charms to give to your bridesmaids – but they actually sell scarves. The charm is just a cute addition to their card. (The coupon included is for 25% off).

Verdict: This box has a retail value of about $61. This is an improvement in value over the last box I reviewed, and I like all the items included – it seems like a good mix of treat yourself items, and ideas for wedding favors.

What do you think of Studio Wed Box?

  1. Rip off 🙁 There are some nice things about it but it is not worth the price. Some of the deals/promo codes expire quickly and only things you can find in major cities.

    The worst part is I can’t even find a log in on their website to cancel or change payment.

  2. I just received my second box and there was basically three items and some adds. No way it’s worth more than $20 bucks. Huge rip off 🙁

  3. I am in love with StudioWedBox, my favorite thing is that each month is a different theme and it is tailored to the date of my wedding. I’m sure its not for everyone but for me it is great!

  4. Hmm…I jumped all over this review, as this box would be right up my alley. But. What is all that stuff?! Is it supposed to be wedding favor samples? Or stuff to add to a registry? Lip balm, candles, cutting board, and scrubby soap?

    I want a unique, fun and fabulous wedding, but I truly can’t imagine a “here, have some balm” situation going on.

  5. Boxes like this just make my heart happy, whether they relate to my situation or not. Gorgeous! 🙂

  6. I am getting married next year. We are so just going to the courthouse. I can’t deal with all the pressure to buy stuff. (I’m so out of the loop that I didn’t even know engagement pictures were a thing. I took one look at my fiance’s sister’s engagement photos and said, “Nope, we’re not doing that.”)

    I am clearly not the sort of person this box is aimed at. Oh well. Hope someone enjoys it.

    • I laughed so hard at everything you said! I’m aromantic, so marriage is definitely beyond me; I kind of feel the same as you! It’s all a lot of fouf-fouf!

      That said, I actually could use most of this stuff lol! I wouldn’t subscribe to a wedding box for it though because I’d feel kind of weird haha.

    • You sound like the sort of bride who spends her time thinking about the 50 years after, not the one day of your life that wedding planners insist should be blown up into a Broadway-sized production. Congrats and good luck!

      We got married in our front yard, then had a party for 80 people. Registry? What’s that? Ah, yes. Fashionable extortion.

      • Thanks!

        I can’t imagine what I’d even put in a registry. We are two 37-year-old adults who have been living alone for some time. So merging our stuff will result in a crazily-overcrowded kitchen (I already have nice china, even, and we’ll have two Cuisinart food processors). The only thing I can think of is towels and we will probably buy those on our own later this year.

        • I’m totally romantic, and think about my wedding all the time. If we didn’t need house stuff, I’d ask people for homemade things (favorite recipes, photos, mix cds) or to give donations to a charity of my choice. In fact, we might do that anyway for people who are on limited budgets.

        • I was about your age when I got married and we had sooo much stuff ! Instead of gifts, we asked each of our guests to write us a letter, seal the envelope and write which anniversary they would like us to read it on the outside. Every year we go to dinner and read the letters to each other. Last year we had a letter from my Mother in law who passed away a few years ago.

          • Wow Laura, that is so special! I’d have never thought of that. What a treasure!

          • That is pretty much the best thing I have ever heard for requesting presents. Ever.

          • Agree – Laura, that’s incredible! Thank you for sharing this beautiful idea!

          • Thanks! I have to admit I wasn’t sure how it would turn out, but it’s been great. The letters have been a mix of emotional, funny, sweet, inspiring and surprising. The biggest surprise was out third anniversary when we opened an envelope with to find $500.00 cash and nothing else. This year for number six we don’t have any letters 🙁 they bunch up around milestone anniversaries a bit.

          • That’s amazing, thanks for sharing that!!

        • I’m not a romantic at heart either. I honestly only went through the wedding to make both families happy since both myself and my husband were perfectly content without it. We just went to the courthouse and had a party afterwards. Instead of gifts we asked that our guests donate the money they would have spent on an item to a charity. We put a list of our favorite charities in with the party invite.

    • I know exactly what you mean! I’m getting married in a few weeks, and we haven’t even told anybody except for our parents (whom we told that it’s a secret), because our moms are the witnesses. 🙂

    • I don’t know if you have already made an appointment at the courthouse, but check out the local laws, because some are quite liberal, making it easy to have someone else officiate and to do it in a spot of your choice. We are still having a big ceremony in a few months for our families and friends, but my husband lost his job at the beginning of the year, so we decided to handle the legal part earlier so he could get on my health care. We live in DC and they allow individuals to self solemnize. We stopped by the courthouse and handed over the appropriate paperwork and the fee and then went to a museum where we said words to each other and signed the marriage certificate. It allowed us to keep it very personal and do it in a beautiful location instead of at the courthouse (which is very very ugly in DC).
