Wedding flowers tie the setting together, making them almost non-negotiable. What is negotiable: the price.

To save thousands of dollars on a florist for your Lake Tahoe wedding, opt for dried flowers. They're just as beautiful as fresh ones, if not more attractive, and you can even assemble them in vases yourself in the weeks leading up to your special day.

Dried flowers are rustic, nostalgic and unique. They're also versatile; you can incorporate everything from roses to wheat and herbs. Another bonus: you can keep them long after your big day.

Here are some of our favorite inspirational images of dried flowers that would make your Lake Tahoe one for the books.
