Weddings in Arkansas: What are some of the trends you see in registries today?
Tipton & Hurst: Over the past several years, we’ve seen a strong resurgence in fine china, often with brides selecting base and/or salad plates to coordinate with inherited china patterns. While we see a range of colors across the board, there’s recently been a heavy emphasis on pieces with gold accents—but basic creams and whites never go out of style.
