I recently got engaged...now what?

I recently got engaged, and am so happy about this! But, I am not the type of girl who always dreamed about what my wedding would be like...basically, I'm more of a casual-type person who is not super into party planning (nor is the hubby-to-be). :) I feel like we need some help in figuring out how to make this wedding happen, but I don't want to get sucked into all the wedding industry stuff...we are not rich, and to the extent we will want to spend money on this, it is probably not on things like ridiculously expensive flower arrangements. So, two questions:

1. Do you have recommendations on particular websites or books that would walk one through planning a CASUAL wedding (i.e. we still want to include family and friends and throw a bit of a party to celebrate, so no eloping, but also nothing super formal/fancy).
2. Do you have any suggestions for an awesome wedding dress? I have no concerns about looking traditional here...white could work, but so could off-white, pink, light green, etc. I'm thinking more like "nice, festive dress" rather than wedding dress, while still feeling special. Important: I want to be able to wear a normal, non-corset bra! But, I don't want to look like a bridesmaid either... Cocktail length is probably preferable to floor length. I am not the sort of person who typically spends more than $50 on a dress, so any suggestions on where to look would be great. :) Looking to spend around $300 but willing to go more if it's the perfect thing.
