@auggiefrog:  Check the dress code on the website of the resort where you will be staying. Most of the resorts we have stayed at only required dressier clothes for the fancier restaurants where you had to make reservations for dinner. The only clothing not allowed at the buffet was bathing suits.

In general, the dress is very laid back, casual and summery. Summer dresses and sandals are fine for you.

Is it the bride or the resort that is saying he needs shoes for dinner? Check that on the website.

Can you get hubby a pair of inexpensive khakis? They would be perfect for the resort and wearable at home too.

This really depends on the resort. Ive been to resorts where polo shirts were fine for men, others where it had to be a long or short sleeve dress shirt. For women often casual flip flops arent allowed but nicer sandals are.Summer dresses are fine. Shorts for a reservation only restaurant are prety much always banned. Some places allow jeans as pants, other say no jeans but its ok to have khakis or black ones. Check the website, or tell us hotel name and we will have a look for you

Like pp said, if you go to buffet areas of resorts then normally no dress code except for not going in bathing suits

Resorts are great, its a normal beach holiday but where you dint need to get your wallet out for anything (well, except souveniers and excursions)
