Okay, so I know Bridal Boxes can be cheesey, but me being me, I really wanted to try one to see what all the hype is about, and experience it for myself. I've found 4 that may be good for what I'm looking for. Ideally, if I'm going to spend the $35-40 dollars on each box, I'd like for the majority (if not all) of the items to be usable and not just trinckets that will end up being tossed away.
So with that said, I've narrowed it down to these fouraisley box*Maeven BoxThe Ring BoxMiss to Mrs. Box *I will probably sign up for the paisley box as the idea of themed boxes is cute, but I still am curious if there's a monthly box you guys would recommend. What are your experiences with any of these boxes, and would you recommend one over the other? Thank you in advanced!
I received boxes from both The Ring Box and Something New Bridal Box. I loved them both! I think I liked Something New Bridal Box just a little better, but both sent good quality, full-size items. The novelty wore off after a few boxes, but they were super fun to receive for a while. I used some (but not all) of the items from each box, and there are a few items I plan to use on/after my wedding day.
I tried the Miss. to Mrs. box and the Maeven box. Personally I love Maeven more and ended up cancelling the other box. I feel that the Maeven box has enough of a mixture that the items seem bridal but can also be put to use after the wedding. Plus everything has been high quality so far so I don't mind the monthly fee for the box.
I have been doing the miss to mrs box and I like it a lot! There are a ton of cute things that are useful to have that I wouldn’t buy myself — also in the last box I got a bunch of super cute bridal decor that my bridesmaids are gonna use to plan my shower (:
I'm getting my first Miss to Mrs box today! I liked how they plan your boxes around your wedding date and have different themed boxes. Fingers crossed I like what's in the box so I don't have to cancel!

That's why I have been holding back, and have t signed up for one yet. If it is in fact 35 a month, and not a box, that's $420 this year that could go towards the wedding. My rationale for it, is I have already stopped a lot of my other monthly routines and expenses to save that were more expensive than the box, so I just don't know. That's the other reason I wanted to hear your opinions, because I want it to be useful, and not just trinckets.
The value of what I got in the box is definitely more than what I paid for the box - this is the intro box so I got a really nice full sized tumbler, a great planning notebook (and even though it says Future Mrs or something on the front, is actually just a great day-to-day planner that I plan on using for non-wedding stuff), two pens, jewelry cleaning wipes, a Love balloon, a necklace, and a countdown calendar. The countdown calendar is the only unnecessary item, for me, because I already have one. But otherwise, a lot of useful and cute stuff!
