Congratulations. I would recommend that you scroll through most of the postings in this forum as you are asking one of the most commonly asked questions.
You do have a small budget, so what is most important is that you plan well.
Write down a prioritized list of what is important to you for your wedding before you do anything else. I wrote an article on one effective way to do this for the Rhode Island Small Business Journal
and would recommend that you read it. (If you need help doing this let me know.)
Think about inexpensive ways to do everything. For example, having your wedding in a park (if it is warm enough in March) is a lot less expensive than a wedding hall. A religious institution, condominium complex club house, civic or educational institution would be a lot less expensive than a business such as a wedding hall or a hotel.
Alcoholic beverages are expensive. Can you skip them and perhaps limit to just a small champagne toast?
If you are using a religious institution could you get them to do the food for you rather than a caterer?
I always advise people not to economize on a photographer, but that is up to you. You will have the photos for a lifetime...
Would you be willing to purchase a second hand wedding dress?
Please let me know if I can be of further help.Ron
