If you can marry and celebrate in the same place that simplifies the transportation issue, unless you have already chosen. DIY crafts, have you ever seen the rose petal candle holders?
Also I copied sheet music onto stiff paper and made pretty cones for the favors. I put Hershey kisses in them (not exactly low budget). They looked elegant and go with everything 'cause they are black & white. We married at an inn, so there were no other decorations. Best wishes!
For transportation, use your own car, that's easy and cheap enough. If I was getting married and had your budget, I would think I was a millionaire. You don't need a sit down dinner. Have the wedding during a time of day that people will have already eaten, then you can get buy serving cake, coffee, tea, punch, etc. Ask close relatives to serve the beverages and cake. Ask more distant relatives to be waiters, waitresses, to make sure people have plenty of coffee, etc. If you know of a friend or relative that is good at taking pictures ask them to be the photographer. A lot of areas have stores where you can either purchase or rent the dress.
Also David's Bridal almost always has dresses for $99.00. You also don't need to have a dance and you don't need to serve booze. For decorations you can use silk fall leaves and fall flowers on the tables. On the brides table you could put in a few pillar candles with the fall leaves and flowers. You don't need to have a fancy dinner, transportation, etc. If you economize on the wedding and reception, you could have some of the budget left for things for your home or just have it in savings.
