Have any of you gotten subscriptions to either the Ring Box or Bride Box? Are they worth it? Which one would you go with?

    I definitely want to follow this, as I've been wondering too.
    I did get on Etsy and ordered myself a few silly personalized things, though. A travel mug (the kind I like that look like a paper cup but are ceramic with a silicone lid) that says "fiance", a ring dish with our initials, a plastic tumbler with my name and "bride" on it and some other nonsense. I probably spent $60 or more with shipping but I just kind of wanted it. I l

    They seem cute! I don't know if I would personally invest in a subscription, but I would definitely be grateful for one if it were gifted to me. It looks like there would be a lot of fun wedding theme items you'd use for his singular event then hide in the back of the closet. I don't know if you'd miss it if you didn't have it, but whatever your decision, have fun planning!

    Yeah, I think you're right. As much as I'd love a box with random items for being engaged and a wedding - there would probably by somethings that would just be used once or not at all. I think I'll have more fun going on etsy or to hobby lobby or something and buying things here and there. Thanks!

    The Ring Box looked like one of the most impressive to me out of all the subscription boxes I looked into.

    Miss to Mrs Box is another that I considered that looked promising. I haven't been able to pull the trigger on this just yet, I think because I know I won't use a lot of that stuff once the wedding is over, and I already have a lot from Etsy as PP said. lol

    My godmother got me a 6-month subscription to the Ring Box and I personally love it! Last month I got this gorgeous silk floral robe that I’m planning to wear on the day-of when I’m getting ready. I also got this cute coffee mug.

    They send you anything from clothing to cute little beauty things, like lip balm and sheet masks. You’ll get 5 items in each box plus 1 or 2 recipes for date night suggestions. I’ve only recieved 2 boxes, so far, but would recommend it.

    I think Bride Box is a little more expensive then Ring Box, so they may send you more items.

    I know, but I worry the boxes are ultimately more expensive for things that would always be not quite what I want. I just put a dollar amount cap on how much I can spend on nonsense. ($60 down, $40 to go and a year to spend it in.)

    You really should look at the Something New Bridal Box! I absolutely love this one! I signed up for this one and The Bride Box. I was very disappointed in The Bride Box. It was a lot of make-up/ bath items. I didn't feel like it was worth the money. Because I was so disappointed, I signed up for the Something New Bridal Box. It is so amazing. I have not received a box I didn't like. Here are the 3 boxes that I have received so far.

    It looks like there is definitely quite a bit of value in these. How much do you pay for these per month?

    Per month it is $45 but if you prepay for either 3, 6, or 12 months you save some. They also post promo codes on their Facebook page sometimes. I would check there for a discount. I did mine right before they had a promo code and they gave me a refund for the difference in price.

    BUYER BEWARE!!!!! This box is an absolute SCAM! The Ring Boxes is not your typical subscription box. I purchased a three month subscription and received my first box yesterday. After receiving my first box, I am terribly disappointed in the quality and value given to each of the products. Unlike most subscription boxes that I have subscribed to before, “The Ring Boxes” is the manufacturer of three of the five products. Each of these three products has a “Made in China” stickers on them and the products are of the same quality as what you would find at a Dollar Store. The other two products are by Mush Made, which I am unable to find a website for, and Lizush, which is the only product that has a website. The bar of Lavender soap from Lizush is the only product in the box of any value.

    When I contacted the Customer Support (by email as they do not have a phone number), I was pointed to the FAQs (frequently asked questions) tab of their web page, which states that it will cost $25 to cancel my subscription, meaning it will now cost me over $60 for all of this garbage. I paid $123.86 for a three month subscription (first box was discounted) and I just received a refund of $57.57. Don’t make the same mistake I did!

    I did the Ring Boxes. I just received my first one and am very disappointed. I got a fitted t-shirt that said Mrs., A bride sash, a diamond ring balloon, ring shaped ice tray, a Mrs. Necklace, and diamond shaped cupcake toppers. The necklace is pretty. The sash could be used for a bachelorette party, the balloon and the cupcake toppers could be used at a bridal shower. However, for the price it cost, it's not worth it. I could have bought the cupcake toppers, sash, and balloon somewhere else for way cheaper. I don't like the fit of the shirt. I didn't get to put any preferences in before I ordered, which is upsetting. I was hoping for a nicer shirt and/or a coffee mug/wine glass. I hope I can return this. I'd consider looking somewhere else or shopping yourself for what you want.

    I’m so glad I found this thread. Has anyone purchased any of these boxes recently? What would you recommend based of price, items and value?
