Trying to plan a wedding on a budget - SO LOST

I'm getting married on August 26th (date is crucial) and I'm trying to plan a wedding on about 3000-3500 dollars total.
I'm so lost,as I am definitely no party planner, and everything I look into ends up being way more than I can afford. I am looking into heritage park, but even with it being a lower cost I'm afraid I will end up paying more than I expect to.

If anyone can help me with this I would be so appreciative!

I also got married at Varsity Community Centre and it was great - good food, easy planning, lots included, and they work around your schedule.

It is tough to plan a typical wedding for a lower budget, but try to plan out a budget based on priorities - spend the money on the things that matter most to you! Then call/email every vendor with questions to price compare, and you'll be able to narrow down what works for you! Letting them know your budget for each category (dress, flowers, hair, etc) will help them work with you to fit your needs.

Stay calm, ask for help when you can, and make it all about you and your fiance! Good luck! :)
