Have seen teenagers in everything from a tux to nice slack/dockers and shirt (not T shirt) with or without a ties. Most teens don't want to really dress up but do get out of the Ts and jeans/shorts for formal nights.
Don't purchase a ball gown or cocktail dress for formal nights unless you plan on crusing a lot. Nice pants or skirt and fancy top or sweater (doesn't need to be beaded or sequined)looks very nice. It is preferred that men wear dress slacks, a coat, and tie but if he doesn't have a coat then I've seen men without them. There is always the option to rent a tux rather than bring one.
IMO: Go to dinner in the dining room that night rather than the buffet unless you always prefer the buffet.[/QUOTE]
