Help! My recipe is in danger!

My buddy was supposed to pick up hops. He didn't. 2oz Hallertauer, 7oz Saaz, 1oz Cascade. Trying for a Oberon-type wheat.

Need advice on substitutions. I'm thinkin' just subbing Tettnang for the Saaz, and maybe a little Willamette with the Hallertauer.

My recipe:
Brewer: Rusty Kettle Brewery
Beer: Overlord Style: American Wheat
Type: All grain Size: 11 gallons
Color: 7 HCU (~5 SRM)
Bitterness: 29 IBU
OG: 1.059 FG: 1.015
Alcohol: 5.7% v/v (4.5% w/w)
Grain: 10 lb. American 2-row
8 lb. 8 oz. Wheat malt
1 lb. 8 oz. American Munich
1 lb. American crystal 20L
1 lb. Dextrine malt (Cara-Pils)
Mash: 80% efficiency
Boil: minutes SG 1.050 13 gallons
Hops: 2 oz. Hallertauer (4.25% AA, 60 min.)
2 oz. Saaz (3.75% AA, 30 min.)
2 oz. Saaz (3.75% AA, 15 min.)
1 oz. Saaz (3.75% AA, 5 min.)
1 oz. Cascade (aroma)
2 oz. Saaz (aroma)

I have a really old oz of Hallertauer,
Lots of Tettnang pellets (Gr)
4oz Cascade
8oz Simcoe
8oz Amarillo
8oz Warrior
8oz Magnum
2oz Perle
4oz Willamette
