Congratulations on getting married. It will last as long as the 'D' word is erased from your vocabulary and never an option to any problem.
If you live on either of the coasts, a beach-side wedding is a fairly cheap bit of business. Get a little cheapo white-painted lattice arch (you might need someone with a pickup-truck to help you get it out there), throw some plastic flowers over it, and stick it in the sand. Wait for sunset, hold a bouquet and look pretty, and let the pictures fly. Keep the guest list small if you're doing a reception, which is typically customary -- that will cut costs as well.
If you are living in a landlocked location, you could repeat the same idea but in other various beautiful terrain scapes. Near old historical churches are popular. Don't get eaten by a bear doing the woods or the hills - go for small towns or near the edges, and mix a little picturesque scenery with urbanity.
You can also add quality by asking certain invitees to prepare speeches or perform fun games, like blindfolding the bride and having her feel different men's faces and have her guess which one is the groom, and so on. Maybe googling for fun wedding games can help add some filler and make it more festive. All of these things can be done without $.
