What kind of outfit is cool, cheap, appropriate for a wedding, and can be found at a typical American mall?

Apparently, I've lost more weight in the past year than I realized. This morning, while trying to figure out which suit I'd wear to a friend's wedding tomorrow, I found out that all of my "nice" clothes are now ridiculously large on me. I'm embarassed to admit that I've become one of those boors who can't buy anything more complicated than tshirts and jeans without the aid of a fashion-conscious friend. And I don't have a single one in town right now.
I need everything except maybe shoes (my feet, thankfully, are the same size). I can't break the bank, though I'm willing to spend more on stuff I might wear more than once. There's going to be a very broad demographic at this wedding, so I figure dressing with an average level of formalness will put me in the middle. If it helps any, I have a pretty lanky frame, and shaggy, curly hair.
So how should I dress, and what must I get?
