AI open bar or pay as they go?

we plan on hosting a full bar for the entire wedding.  we can either pay $40 a head for a full top shelf open bar or pay based on consumption.  FI's and my friends are big partiers/drinkers but our families are 1-3 drink kind of people.

according to the venue beers are about $4-6, wine $5-10, and cocktails $8-14

I am torn.  I want to do what makes economic sense but i can't figure out what is better.  advice?

btw-sorry for so much WR stuff in the past week-it's crunch time and i value your opinions!
