You may need to scale it back and either invite fewer guests or hold your wedding at a non-meal time and just serve cake and punch. Having your ceremony and reception at the same venue will save you a lot of money on paying separate fees for a church and for transportation between the church and hall. And if you are trying to do something less "ordinary" that would fit your bill since church ceremonies are most typical.I am doing about 70 people on the Natchez steamboat with food and limited bar, and DJ, for well under your $8,000 budget.
