Any help or ideas are not only needed but much appreciate it. Thank you and God bless.

How about a part time job?

Pick up another job, if you’re crafty sell stuff of etsy.com, clear out your closest and sell some good condition clothing on craigslist or poshmark.com…

Sell stuff on craigs list or ebay.
Get another job.
Pick up some babysitting gigs.
See if your friends or family are in the market for a housekeeper, cook, or anything sort of skills you may have that could be trades for money.

Generally it’s a good idea to have a wedding you can afford. I know it doesn’t always work out that way, but it’s a good rule to have.
That said, there’s really no “Wedding Fundraisers” i can think of. Typically it isn’t looked well upon when somebody says, “Hey! Give me money for my wedding!”
Do you have any crafts or hobbies you could market? Knitting, crocheting, sewing, painting, that sort of thing?
If worse comes to worst — Blood plasma sells well. Depending on the market, you can sell your hair, too. This also depends on how much hair you have and what you want to do for your wedding day.
Edit: I always assume a part time job is “out of the question” but it is an option. Even working weekends or just a few days out of the week.
There is also tutoring at schools.

“Raising” money for a wedding?? Please, leave the fundraising efforts for non-profit organizations that provide important services for humanity.
Have the wedding that you can afford. How much have you saved up? Out entire wedding for 40 or so guests has a total budget of $3,500 and that includes rings, dress, flowers, cake, favors and a catered full dinner reception.
You can save in many ways; a quick review of some of the threads on here will yield an incredible wealth of creative ideas from brides unwilling to go into debt or lean on their relatives to finance a blow-out wedding.
And, as others have said, you can always take a part-time job.
