5/12-5/20: If a sweet sixteen cost $4000-$6000 WHY CANT MY WEDDING PLEASE HELP (Long Island/Queens)

Single mom of three looking to have a wedding on a budget. I work three jobs to support my family, the Mister and I both are hardworking individuals but we do not come from money and are not looking for a hand out. If we want this wedding it has to be done by us and only us no help- so Im asking for help and advice to have a wedding on a budget.

Looking for a venue approx. $4000-$6000 if food is included--- if it's a venue like VFW Hall, Fire house cheaper but catering needs to fall within budget. Within the past two years I've had friends who have had sweet 16 or BatMitVahs for their family for approx 100-125 total price for venue, food (the food at these events have been 3 or 4 options for entrée's (meat, fish, pasta etc) desert and a cake between $4000-$6000- (If its possible for an event like this its possible for my wedding) and I don't need to be a princess for the day but I would like something for
family and friends to gather, have a good time, get some amazing pictures and create a lifetime of memories. This day will not only be a wedding but will be the joining of two families and for my children to realize how special they are to the both of us as the family becomes one.

Do you know of a place that has off peak months? Are you familiar with a hall that we can give our on touch to for the day VFW, Fire house- do you have pictures so that I can make a dream come true. Im willing to create my own centerpieces- set up my event hopefully the night before if its at a hall like VFW, Firehouse----

Looking for the typical wedding in means of time 4-5 hours. . .. ( I have a friend who DJ's so that wont be a problem) venue not to expensive, good food, good appearance (Cake doesn't need to be included but if it is it's a plus) BTW I don't need open bar, cash bar is fine . . ... Any help is appericated! I would love to view places, go for tastings but I don't want to waste anyones time or mine. I know this is a long shot posting on here but maybe a lil help will direct me the right way. . ...

WE haven't set a date yet but have thought of spring 2014 or fall winter spring of 2015
