are you having a caterer? Our caterer was really helpful with those types of numbers. we went with some extra stuff on the tables because I wanted it to look really formal in a dinner on titanic way lol.

If it’s not super formal, do the basic knife, fork and spoon for each person and then if you’re having soup, get a soup spoon and anything else you might need, such as a seperate spoon/fork for dessert as most people prefer to use separate ones.

It depends on what you are serving.  For a salad, entree and wedding cake for dessert I would do 3 forks (1 for salad, 1 for entree and 1 for cake), along with 1 knife for entree and 1 spoon for coffee (or if people want to use it for dessert).  You need 1 fork per course served and a knife for anything that would require it such as the entree.
