For inexpensive venues, I would do a search in your area for the following:
Knights of Columbus
They may only ask for a donation and usually have a kitchen, air conditioning, tables and chairs, and a coat room. Many have outdoor property, a garden or are near a park. if you get married at a park, you just need to make a small donation and get a permit from your town hall or city council.
Check your local phone book or stop by a neighborhood real estate office who should have a map of your area and all public access locations.
Also keep in mind that many catering venues offer up to 1/2 off for an evening weekday party (like wednesday or thursday) or a sunday afternoon event. You get the same treatment, but since the economy is bad and the venues want the business, they offer it at much cheaper prices.
I'm in NYC, which is by far the most expensive place, and was able to find venues with full buffets, non-alcoholic drinks for as low as $25 per person (and beautiful rooms to boot).
Good luck to all!
