Should I tell my Probation Officer if I think that I could be violating Probation?

Albany, NY |

I'm getting married in a month, and I was told that it had to be a dry wedding. There will be Alcohol, and I'm nervous my Probation Officer will find out. I don't plan on drinking, but was still told that this is a violation. Should I just tell my PO about the alcohol? Can they stop the wedding that is paid for?
