Hmm... well, I'm a caterer but I don't know of any places to recommend in Fiji. First of all, have her talk to a reputable travel agent. They will probably have some good ideas. If not, she will probably need to do a lot of this research online and maybe plan on getting a cheap international calling card (and remember which time zone Fiji is in) and make a bunch of calls.

Presumably, unless everyone can afford a vacation to Fiji, the guest count is going to be pretty low which should make things a lot easier and cheaper. Many hotels will probably offer "wedding packages", so that's a good place to start. If that's going to be too much money, she could ask a hotel concierge about an officiate and good, cheap wedding sites.

I have no idea what to tell you about food. Has she been there before? Did she go to a restaurant that she just fell in love with? If so, she could contact that restaurant to see if they do catering or maybe at least party platters.

Hope this helps!!!

Here are a couple of sites that may help your research-

Fiji-islands.com
Fijiweddings.com

And, straight from their gov site-

try: captain cook cruises
a co-worker recently celebrated his 20th anniversary in fiji - he spent a few of the days on a private island this company owns. he did say it wasn't ideal for honeymooners (not much privacy - well, yes, a secluded location, but other huts near by), but it was cheap - and that's what you asked for, right?

this will surely follow under the "any" category of your tip solicitation...
