Have you tried any formal wear rental places? Perhaps you could rent the couple of white tie items you need. Also, most rental shops generally have a retail outlet where they sell 'retired' rental items. When I was putting my formal outfit together, (not white tie though) I bought 2 wing shirts and a 3 button vest for about 25 bucks at such a store.

I looked into renting a wing shirt and bow tie a few years back for prom... They wanted $18 for the bow tie rental, or they would sell me one for $12... Go figure...
