    What is the dress code like at the RIU. I just bought a few dresses to take with me. . .I hate shorts but don't want to appear too dressy? Any clothing advice?

      I believe that a lot of the sit-down dinner places have dress codes. Hopefully a preivous ROR bride can help with the specifics though!

      I also have a dress code question - I beleive guys are not allowed to wear flipflops/sandals for the sit down dinners. First, is that correct? Second, does that apply to wedding parties? (I want all the groomsman in leather flipflop sandals...)

        The dress code for walking around in the evenings is whatever you want it to be! But I do notice a lot of ladies like to wear dresses (including me) in the humidity because they are just more comfortable to wear in the heat and humidity than shorts! I would bring a lot of cute breezy dresses and/or skirts!
        Some of the restaurants do have dress codes and they are more strict with the men - long pants and close-toed shoes. I will try to find a thing I brought home with me that outlined the dress code for the different restaurants and post it later today after work.

            Do you think they will say anything about a wedding party? I wouldn't think so, everyone in my wedding party will be in flip flops....

              I live in skirts and dresses all summer long, way more comfortable and cooler then shorts. I think you can dress up or down a skirt as much as you want, tank top flip flops and your ready for the day, throw on a dressy shoe and your ready for the night.

                Sorry for the bad scan - but this is the little info sheet you get about the restaurants at the Riu Ocho Rios:
                Click the image to open in full size.
                Now that I think about it, we never ran into any troubles with footwear, and they dont specify any footwear requirements on this sheet. You'll see under dinner, they have little pictures on the left - they mean "No Shorts", and "No Tank Tops".
