Worse comes to worst, you have two options on formal night: a sport jacket & slacks (similar, dark colors best, with tie), or eating in the buffet area and not dressing up. You probably won't be denied admission to the dining room if not dressed according to formal night standards, but you may feel seriously out of place if you show up in slacks and polo shirt that evening. My husband has gotten away with a navy blazer & slacks on formal nights, as he didn't have a suit until more recently.
