Will people be expecting drinks?  I would just offer soft drinks and tea if money were an issue.

I dont think so, sorry.  

Its possible that if you don’t order a drink then they will follow suit, but no guarantees.

How about hosting lunch at the salon? That is what we did. We had a shrimp platter and pizza. You could bring in whatever you want. Most salons will allow this.

two options:

1) do a fixed menu and print out little menus that include the lunch options and beverage options (which can just be iced tea, lemonade, etc)

2) instead of people individually ordering drinks, offer a few pitchers of sangria or something

I assume you’re having this at a restaurant of some sort? I would tell the girls in a friendly way, “so I’m treating you to lunch, but bring some cash if you want any alcohol!” 🙂 maybe in an email? (end with the smiley!)

and then also make sure that the restaurant/waiter is fine with giving a separate check to anyone who gets a drink. (without being reminded at the table.)

but, on the other hand, unless you’re friends are big drinkers, I really can’t imagine anyone having more than a drink (maybe 2!) at a luncheon! Is that really such a big expense?
