Updated: Mar 26, 2021
In the wake of the 2020 pandemic (which is still a heavy concern in places across the world as I write this post), brides everywhere had to postpone, re-plan, and adjust their wedding preparations to accommodate social distancing, mask wearing, and the overall health of their guests. As a result of this wedding re-planning, subscription boxes have cropped up everywhere to help brides stay flexible with their arrangements and enthusiastic about their special days. Here are a few that caught my eye while scrolling Instagram, Pinterest, and various wedding blogs this week!
Note: None of these companies have paid me to say what I do in this piece.
The Blushing Bride Box
This UK-based box has a strong Instagram brand presence and not only offers a monthly box full of a variety of goodies, but also an online store where you can pick-and-choose your favorite products from past boxes! This box has included everything from lipstick, to reception drink tokens, to signage, to favors and keepsakes. Anything "wedding" is up to be in this box. They also include discount codes and expert advice, making this box a truly valuable wedding planning tool! There's monthly, 3-month, or 6-month plans for the subscription box. If you're a maid of honor or a doting groom, you could also send this to the bride-to-be in your life as a gift! They have a nifty, giant button just for that purpose at the bottom of their website.
Bride & Bride, Groom & Groom, and Theirs & Mine LGBTQ Wedding Subscription Box
I want to first point out that this box is a work-in-progress at the time of writing this post, so it isn't available for purchase yet. However, if you or someone you love is looking for inclusive wedding opportunities, I'd be following Tania and her great LGBTQ wedding subscription box idea! She already has a collaboration with Spirit of Stonewall (Stonewall Gin), who support an LGBTQ+ charity called Stonewall, and Love for All LGBTQ+ Wedding Workshop. She also has over a decade of experience in the events and wedding industries behind her. This wedding planning company in the UK is all about inclusive wedding planning and hosts planner journal giveaways and the like, so it's worth giving the account a follow and bookmarking their website.
Tying the Knot Box
This subscription box offers both bride and groom options, so it doesn't matter which is the "planner" in the relationship! Apparel and wedding essentials are the focuses of this box and there are monthly, 6-month, or 12-month options. This box makes a promise that you won't get any same or similar items within a 12-month rotation of boxes, too! If you're not ready to commit to a subscription box yet, they have a handy newsletter that's free to sign up for. Google indicates this box is based in New Jersey and focuses more on the enjoyment of your time leading up to the special day than the other boxes mentioned here.
The Famous "Miss to Mrs Box"
I know I included a couple of UK-based boxes here, which may leave out some of our United States readers, so I wanted to quickly mention the Miss to Mrs. Box. They send you the trendiest wedding items they can find every month and they're well-loved by the big bridal magazines: The Knot, Wedding Wire, and Brides. This box has a feature where you can get a box every 2-3 months rather than every month if your wedding date is farther away - it's customized to how much time you have before your special day. I wanted to gear this post toward smaller businesses, but it's only fair to give you as many great options as I can when scaling this topic!
