We’ve noticed that sharing platters have become an increasingly popular form of wedding and party catering. Over the last couple of years, more and more people have asked us to include an element of sharing in their menu, whether it’s in a tapas format or ‘family style’.
Weddings particularly have become less formal and many couples have become more adventurous when it comes to how they experience food. Offering at least one course sharing style can be a great way of relaxing guests and enabling people to get to know one another and we have had great fun working on different dishes that work well for sharing..
Family style eating
Our sharing platters are served on attractive plates and dishes which are placed in the middle of the table, giving everyone the opportunity to serve themselves, I suppose you could consider it a buffet where you don’t have to move!
Here are some examples of current popular sharing dishes for from Copleys wedding & party catering menu:
Sharing homemade puddings
We are also seeing a growing trend at weddings for the guests to bring a homemade pudding or dessert and put them together for the whole party to share. It’s a lovely idea which makes things much more personal and helps guests feel more involved in the celebration.
