Yes, for the women pretty much anything goes except beachwear.  We certainly saw men turned away who were wearing shorts and capris.  If you join this FB group, I posted exactly what it says on the reservation slips for the a la cartes while we were staying there.  Sandals are fine for men.  If I recall correctly, it also says no sleeveless shirts for men.

@sgreen99 just so you know if you have more than 60 people the price for the dinners for the palapa for the 3 course dinner is 350 pesos. there is also a charge for the use of the sound system per hour if you dont have a dj... 

 

I'm in the process of trying to pick out flowers etc does anyone know what the color options are for the ribbons? I know if you pick anything other than white or blue you have to pay but im wondering what the other colors are? 

 

And does anyone know what the cost is for a flower for your hair? i'm guessing it wouldnt be too expensive?

I can tell you a bit about orchids for your hair...we purchased a stem of white orchids for my FI's daughter's hair and used all but one or two blooms on the stem in her case.  The stem was around $15.50 USD.  We did inquire about one large fuschia orchid, and the price they quoted us was almost $40 USD!  Needless to say, we went with the white orchids....here's a pic of how they looked:
