HBO's Girls is wrapping up its third season this Sunday, which means we'll have to wait another year or so to get our weekly fix of friendships, drama, love, and some of the trademark kookiness we've come to expect from Lena Dunham's era-defining show. But if you're engaged, that means two things: Your love life is significantly more functional than that of Hannah Horvath, Marnie Michaels (played by real-life engaged gal Allison Williams), Shoshanna Shapiro, and Jessa Johansson, and that you can relive your favorite fashion moments for a little unexpected wedding inspiration!

If you've always wondered which character's style most matched yours, then take our quiz to find out—and learn what kind of wedding you should plan! We found four totally unique engagement rings, wedding invitations, wedding dresses, wedding bouquets, and wedding cakes that encapsulate each of the girls' personalities and styles. Pick your favorite from each set and then scroll down to see who you should channel on your wedding day!

The Engagement Ring

The rock that your fiancé proposes with should speak volumes about your relationship and your personal style. Since it's the piece of jewelry you wear every day, it should not only go with everything you wear, but it should also say a little something about your wedding. Are you a more vintage-y, boho bride? Choices a. or d. have an offbeat feel. Choice b. is a classic David Yurman design that incorporates yellow gold and his trademark twisted bands—perfect for sophisticated, traditional ladies. We love how c. features a gorgeous center stone surrounded by a pavé halo. Honestly, any bride would be lucky to have it!

The Wedding Invitation

Your invitation suite is the true first place to announce your wedding style. Always pick stationery that reflects your bond as a couple, but don't be afraid to have some fun! Choices a. and c. are both bold and colorful, but a. has an undone vibe thanks to the "torn" insert cards, while c. is straight-up playful. Brides that favor clean lines with a hint of artistry will fall in love with choice b. Its striped envelope lining plays off of the artsy green dots on the invitation. Nothing says bohemian bash like choice d., with its olive leaves, fruit, and script font. We can practically smell the incense from here.

The Wedding Dress

With any luck, a bride will always love her wedding dress. These four options are all wildly different, and yet they all have something to say. Choice a. feels like it belongs to a fairy princess with a devil-may-care attitude. It should be worn by a bride with a flair for drama and individuality. The spaghetti straps and airy fabric of choice b. echo the refined, posh nature of the Hamptons. Choice c. is ultra-feminine and romantic, and the strapless, ruched bodice is very on trend. In case the floral headpiece or long sleeves didn't tip you off, choice d. is delightfully bohemian. The short hemline makes it ideal for a carefree bride with great legs.

The Bouquet

You'll want your bouquet to contain some of the same flowers as your centerpieces; therefore, always pick one with flowers in shades from your color palette. The muted pastels of choice a. are great for a wedding with an eclectic vibe, while choice b. is clean and sophisticated, with its pops of blue against the crisp white flowers. Tone-on-tone pink like the hues in choice c. reflect a totally girly, romantic sensibility. The stand-out wildgrass in choice d. is rustic and edgy, perfect for an alternative wedding.

The Wedding Cake

And finally, the pièce de résistance: The wedding cake. Often the show-stopper of the reception, it should really do two things: Look good and taste good. Luckily, cakes are so creative these days, that they can reflect your entire wedding style to a T! The ombré buttercream is sunny and reminds us of sorbet. Two desserts in one? Sounds like a great cake for an indulgent bride with a very positive body image. The water-color inspired mini cakes in choice b. are reminiscent of Monet's paintings. Brides with an interest in the arts will be instantly attracted to them. The soft, pale pink and pearls in choice c. are fun and feminine at the same time, while choice d. is practically exploding with autumnal, woodsy charm.

The Verdict
If you picked mostly a's: You're a Hannah! You're a fun, funky woman with a style all of your own. A little bit boho and a little bit eclectic, your wedding will undoubtedly have some unexpected elements (think whimsical touches like bicycles or a dog as a ring bearer). Consider a totally Girls-worthy venue in Brooklyn, like the Brooklyn Winery.

If you picked mostly b's: You're a Marnie! A mature, sophisticated woman, you'll have a wedding with a clean aesthetic punctured with pops of artistic color and pattern. Plan a wedding in a locale like the Solé East hotel in the Hamptons, which echoes her upper-crust, polished personality, but also has more modern and rustic elements with its beaches and scenery.

If you picked mostly c's: You're a Shoshanna! Ever the girly girl, Shosh is also up on the trends and knows a lot about whimsical, modern style. Naturally, her type of wedding will have lots of pink, along with youthful elements like doughnut favors. If she's your kind of girl, get married in the Eloise-approved Plaza Hotel. It's a timeless icon whose romance no one can deny.

If you picked mostly d's: You're a Jessa! You've always marched to the beat of your own drum, and your wedding should be no exception. Play up your bohemian, urban side the same way that Jessa did in her surprise wedding at the end of season 1. If you're a bon vivant with an eye on high culture, consider tying the knot in a jaw-dropping venue like the Puck Building. Located in one of Manhattan's trendiest neighborhoods, its large windows and high ceilings will give you a loft-wedding vibe with a hit of class.
