It's no secret that we love succulents. Succulent plants are eco-friendly, rich in texture, and definitely on-trend for 2012. And we just can't seem to get enough gorgeous succulent inspiration!

What many brides don't know is that there are lots of succulent types, and each has its own unique look and feel. If you're planning a romantic vintage wedding, consider the Echeveria x imbricata succulent, as its gray-green rounded leaves offer a soft, antique feel. If your wedding color palette features red and you're not getting hitched in winter, the ruby-tipped leaves of the Sempervivum 'Carmen' succulent will look great in your bridal bouquet or reception centerpieces.

The Carmen transforms in winter and the entire bloom turns violet, so winter brides working with jewel-toned palettes should keep this succulent in mind! The Aeonium arboreum 'Zwartkop' has dark purple petals and a striking, whimsical shape, and the glossy green Crassula ovata 'Jade' succulent is dainty and delicate. Adding a few Jade succulents to a bridal bouquet of traditional fresh flowers is the perfect way to spice it up!
