Usually when brides crave something a little more unique than just a round-cut diamond, they just opt for an engagement ring with a colored precious stone or perhaps a rose gold band. This bride, on the other hand, got a little more personal than that. When Carlee Leifkes' now-fiancé popped the question, she knew that their nontraditional romance deserved a nontraditional engagement ring. And that's exactly what she got — her fiancé's wisdom tooth set in a silver band! Now how's that for unique?

Sure glam, timeless diamonds are classic for a reason, but this bride literally has a piece of her soon-to-be-hubby on her finger! "We told [our families] we weren't planning on having a diamond," the too-cool bride told Buzzfeed. "They were like, 'You've never been traditional! Why start now?!'" The off-beat pair, who met at a Canadian music festival earlier this year, knew that typical sparklers really aren't them, so the groom had his father mail him the wisdom tooth he lost when he was younger and then had it set into a ring by a jeweler. He popped the question on Halloween, which is actually pretty fitting seeing as the engagement ring contains a rather spooky discarded body part!

As for the wedding, the couple promises that it will be just as unconventional as the bride's new bling, as they're jetting off to Vegas later this month to say "I do" — despite Leifkes' broken leg! "I'm going to have a cast, a wisdom tooth ring, a pink dress, and Elvis is going to marry us!" she said.

One thing's for sure — this out-of-the-ordinary bride sure has one heck of an engagement ring selfie! "What does a diamond signify in anybody's relationship?" Leifkes asked. "I literally have my husband's wisdom on my finger!"
