Q. We’re planning a vow renewal celebration for the whole family and plan not to serve alcohol since there will be children present. Should we notify guests that you won’t serve alcohol?
A. You don’t have to notify your guests that you won’t be serving alcohol at your vow renewal. Invitees are attending the event to celebrate your the marriage and/or anniversary, not to enjoy access to alcohol. A few drink options are more than enough, so serve your guests what you’re comfortable with. If you want a non-alcoholic affair, try serving something a little out of the norm, such as a lemonade or hot chocolate bar to keep your refreshments memorable.
