We know all about these beauty box subscriptions like Glossybox and Birchbox don’t we? I’ve always wanted to sign up to one of them but just never have. Then I came across this company called Bridea. It’s a similar kind of thing, only it’s full of inspiring things that you’ll need for your Wedding. Amazing! I did a bit of googling to see if I could find any other companies in the U.K that did these Wedding type subscription boxes and Bridea was the only one! So I clicked ‘BUY’ and waited rather impatiently for my box to arrive.
I didn’t have to wait long and when The Bridea box arrived it was packaged really nicely and I could not WAIT to open it!
There were mountains of things packed into the box and admittedly I did a ‘Top 10’ video on YouTube but in all honestly there were 7 items that I really loved.
NO.1 – Confetti Pop’s
This has to be my most favourite product from the box. A confetti filled party popper! Genius! A lot of venue’s and church’s make an announcement before the Wedding Ceremony begins to ask that people don’t throw confetti because “somebody has to clear it up.” Well this is the perfect solution…it’s real petals so it’s all biodegradable 🙂 no cleaning up to do YAY. I DEFINITELY want some of these for my big day.
It took me a bit of time to get my head around the ‘Shropshire Petals’ website, I didn’t find it that easy to use but at the top of every page is there phone number to call for help. Sometimes I think it’s easier to just phone people up to say what you want but then again, that could just be a sign of getting old haha. The Confetti Pop’s are £2.55 each and you can choose the petal colours to match your colour scheme. If you have a lot of guests then this could be a pretty pricey option but they do have some cheaper options on their website
No.2 – Wedding Tea Towel
I LOVED this idea. Initially when I took the towel out of the box, I didn’t quite realise what the point of it was until I began to read it haha. This is such a fantastic idea and can work out cheaper than wedding invitations from stationers. The majority of us (let’s be honest) will chuck a wedding invitation in the bin when we don’t need it any more but I think the reason that I love this so much is because it has an every day use…for drying the pots haha, however I’d probably frame this and hang it on the wall in my home.
What you need to remember with Wedding invitations is that if you have 50 guests to invite, you don’t necessarily need 50 invitations as your guests list will include couples who may also have children. I know this seems really obvious but a lot of people don’t realise at first.
They have 26 designs to choose from or you can design your own.
£199 choose one of their designs + 50 tea towels
£324 commission your own design + 50 tea towels
(free delivery to mainland UK)
No.3 – Wedding Favour – Flower Seeds
Lee and I decided not to have Wedding Favours as we didn’t want to spend money on something that wouldn’t really mean anything to us or our guests, but when I saw these little packets of flower seeds I thought it was a fantastic Wedding Favour. The seeds packets can consist of flowers that you had in your Wedding bouquet or centrepieces, or both your parents favourite flowers…so it can be a meaningful Wedding Favour.
‘Wedding in a Tea Cup’ do loads of different stationary, gifts, wedding favours and more. I had a nosey at their website 🙂 I really like it. Go have a look…
No.4 – Wedding Invitation
The design of this is so cute. It reminds me of children’s books…I can’t remember what book it was that I had but there was a map in it like this and it showed me where all of the characters lived. I am so in love with this idea. They will design a bespoke map for you which will look like your wedding day, with the venue on etc.
£185 – 50 standard size, full colour postcard invitations
They offer ‘bundles’ as well which includes things like your place names, table names, seating plan etc all match your invitation. For 50 guests this can be anything from £245-£615. It isn’t obvious what you get for those prices so it might be worth phoning them up for a chat with someone.
No.5 – Wedding Save The Dates/ Wedding Invitations
I LOVED this as a Wedding invitation or save the date because it is different! You can choose from round beermats like in the photo or square beermats with rounded edges and they cost £78.85 for 50. If you know how to use graphic design software then you can design your own and upload the artwork, or they will design your beermat for you for free. All you have to do is tell them what you want…easy peasy
No.6 – Wedding Stationary
The product that they put in the box does NOT do this company justice. You HAVE to go to their website to see all of the amazing stationary that they do. It is all printed with clean and colourful designs. They do everything from place names, to table plans. If you’re looking at finishing touches for the big day, this is the company for you! LOVE THEM!
– Wedding Favours or Gifts
So when you head over the the website, they don’t have a Wedding area at all. It’s more of a general chocolatier BUT they do a lot of different things which would be amazing as wedding favours or thank you gifts. I ate the ones that arrived in the Bridea box so I can vouch for their yumminess 🙂 haha
If it’s favours that you want then you need to click on ‘Our Chocolate’s, then ‘Temptations’ and finally ‘little ones’. The prices range from £3.50 – £9.99 each. The product in the video is £2.99 each
They have some incredible and beautiful thank you gifts. They even offer a monthly subscription too *winks* ranging from £18.95-£220 per month…WOWZERS!!!
The Bridea box is a great way to get your creative juices flowing. The were products in the box that I didn’t really love but when I visited that companies website there were loads of things I discovered that I really REALLY loved.
I’ll leave you with the video of my review, and a video of what my real job is 😀
