    I think 8 is the minimum. I probably wouldn’t go over 12, regardless of the size of your family. If plates break, you should be able to buy single ones to replace them. I think 8 is a good number for the registry. If you get them all and you want more down the line, then you can always buy them yourself.

    personally I would register for much more than that! Atleast get another set so it’s 16 in total 

    most people I know register for a set of 20 places- but I have a big family.

    why wouldn’t you want atleast enough to serve both your immediate families?

    We registered for 12 place settings. My DH has 2 brothers, and both are married, so if we had his entire side of the family over, we would need 10 settings. Add in my parents and that’s 12, which is how I got to that number. Also, we have a core group of friends that we typically do dinner at each other’s places once a month that is usually 10 place settings.

    But don’t feel like you have to register for more than you need/want/can store. I will say that 12 place settings can take up a lot of space!

    We are doing 12 because that is about as many as we go through between dish washing cycles. You could do less but I would recommend one more set.
