Which images are better Medium, Fine or Large Normal?

When shooting JPEGs, I always use Quality Priority.
When shooting weddings, I set my cameras for RAW + Fine Large JPEG and nearly always use the JPEG.
For Landscapes, I shoot Large, Fine JPEGs, but may also start shooting RAW.
When shooting Events we have been using only Large Fine JPEGs with second card overflow,
because we shoot thousands of images in a day.

Now that I have a D800 the JPEGs can often go over 30 MegaBytes.
I need to reduce file size because we sell and e-mail many "FullSize" JPEGs.
I am looking for file sizes close to my D600 when set for Large Fine and quality Priority (8-15MBs).

Keep in mind that we sell memories not Art Objects.
My best ever sales, we at an Event where we shot basic JPEGs with a D1.
But I want to give my customers better than that because we also print 17x25 posters.
