    We registered for 12. We would only use our china for holidays and dinner parties, in which we normally have a larger group over.

    @MsGinkgo:  Sorry, I didn’t realize you were referring to everyday dishes. We have 8 place settings and its more than enough for us. We originally only had 4 and I felt like I was always washing the dishes!

    We registered for 12 of everything for our everyday dishes. We will easily entertain 8 at a time in the future and we decided to register for a couple extra just on case we broke something as the dishes are very unique.

    ETA: if you’re not going to be using it to entertain people I would probably register for 6 place settings.

    We have place settings for 8 and it’s perfect!

    I’m doing 8.  I have no siblings and my FI’s siblings and family are all out of town so the probability of us having more than 8 people in our home for a holiday at once is extremely slim.

    For every day dishes, I’d say 8. For fine china, I’d say 13 (12+1 in case it breaks).

    @MsGinkgo:  i love mix and match for casual ware.  last night i had a small dinner party (4 of us) for the premier of breaking bad.

    i don’t want to call it neon, but i have bright place mats and glasses.  everyone had a different color placemat, i don’t have two of the same color anyway and a different color glass (this set came as 4 different colors) and i used my nice black plates.

    I like having 12 sets of the everyday dishes so I can fill up the dishwasher and not have us run out of dishes quite as often.

    I say 12, though 8 would probably suffice — depends on how often you want to do the dishes 🙂
