Is open bar worth it?

Also, I have been in some places that the price listed for say vodka, only includes the vodka. If you want a vodka and soda water, you also pay for the soda water. Is this the case at the Hilton?

For me, part of paying for an open bar was the peace of mind. I did not want to spend my wedding night getting (silently) angry if I saw water bottles sitting around half-full that I knew we paid $4 for. I just did not want to feel like I needed to be careful about counting receipts or losing track of how high the tab was running or if it was accurate...etc etc. With open bar, I could order a margarita, leave it on the table, forget it, and get another and NOT CARE. (Not saying that was my goal, but I am a penny pincher type of person and I know I would have stressed about it)

For peace of mind sake, I'd opt for the open bar. I've never been keen on the tab or by consumption bar... you'll never keep track of it nor will you want to. For the water alone it's a must although most people will drink 3/4 bottled waters and then soda if non drinkers that day.
Hope my opinion helps

It was more expensive than if we would have just paid for the open bar from 6:30 to 1am.
I think it all depends on your guests. We had a handful that weren't drinking alcohol, but it still added up. It might have been things such as bottled water, I don't know.
