It's no secret that cool, laid-back, bohemian style is having a huge moment in the bridal world. From lush, colorful flower crowns to edgy-and-chic wedding dresses, there are countless ways that brides can add an influx of this offbeat style into their wedding day. But for the bride-to-be who wants to host a boho-inspired ceremony and reception, we found all of the vibrant and eclectic essentials to create a trendy and stylish bash that suits your favorite aesthetic. (We threw in a honeymoon must-have too!)

1. The Engagement Ring
This gorgeous twig-inspired engagement ring features an intricate yellow gold band and a classic, round-cut white diamond. It's available in white and rose gold, too, but what really makes this ring so special is how it's made: Every band is created by casting a real twig, hand-selected from Brooklyn, New York, so your bling will be entirely unique.
