What to wear?

Recommended Posts

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.

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:

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".

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
