12 sets was what the lady at our store recommended, so we trusted her advice.  I’m not sure where we’d keep that much china either, come to think of it!  Perhaps we should both add a china cabinet to our registries!

I don’t think that’s overkill at all! We’re also registered for everyday and fine china, and we’re asking for 12 everyday mugs, bowls, salad, and dinner plates. I think what you’re asking for is fine, and what most people expect to see! In the event a piece breaks, you’ll be glad you have ‘extras’, you know?

Dishes take up a ton of storage space,and for every day ones you can get away with service for 8. Fine china you should do the service for 12, but if you have a large family or entertain a lot,even that won’t be enough.

If I had it to do over,I would have gotten my regular dishes and china in similar plain designs and basic colors ,so filling in when needed wouldn’t be such an issue. I have a whole set I never use since it doesn’t match anything else, as my tastes have changed over the years.

We’re registered for 14 in case of breakages and because of big families.

Big families = big family dinners.
