I don't can't lose a suit. But who hasn't lost a wallet? Buy some shoes. It's hard to lose those!
If you wear light blue socks, might want to try to match that pocket square with them, rather than just making it the color of the shirt. Sounds like a nice getup though!
Went with a tux, huh?
If you have one shirt you like already, you can use that for measurements. Otherwise, but one MTM shirt from a local clothier with a good rep (it'll cost you but it's worth it) and use that for ordering from online suppliers.

Those pants look fine to me.   Collllege!
That's nice of them. Haven't been there yet but it's on my list.  
Nice. Thanks for sharing. I was going to suggest Indochino, which is a very affordable MTM solution. If you can, post a pic of your new suit!   -B  
Hey man,   You could try Banana Republic and Lucky Brand. Both run under $100 and fit well on short men. Make sure to wear straight or boot cut. Never relaxed fit or skinny jeans. Also, a great alternative to jeans are slim fit chinos, like the Emerson chinos from BR or colored slim fit denim from PacSun.   Also, don't worry if you can't find your exact inseam length. If you find a pair that fits well but is a little bit too long (which is common for us short...
