Riedel Wine Glasses -- need advice on purchasing

I'm about to bite the bullet, throw away my now odd numbered, mismatched Crate and Barrel wine glasses and invest in some nice Riedel ones. I have a couple of questions I'm hoping the experts can help me with. The choices are overwhelming, I'm hoping to just buy a set for red wine and a set for white wine. On most sites, they are listed for specific reds and whites, way too highbrow for our needs. Can anyone recommend which styles would be best for a broader range of wines? My husband favors the bigger bowls for red wine, but it seems like Riedel doesn't think those are right for red wine. Is that right? Finally, if anyone has any recommendations on where to get them cheapest online, I'm all ears. Thanks in advance for your help with this!
