A Little Bit About Country Pleasin’
Cooper’s Country Meat Packers & the Country Pleasin’ Brand has been in the meat business for over forty years. Talk about qualified! In 2005 however, they expanded to open up a one-of-a-kind butcher market in Florence, MS. Their butcher market not only offers a variety of fresh cut meat but also their exclusive specialty, Country Pleasin’ sausage too! Now the market has expanded even more to offer cheeses, seasonings, sauces, and spices as well. Now that’s making it a true one-stop-shop for planning your own DIY wedding menu!
So How to Choose Your DIY Wedding Menu Items…
First, decide what kind of menu you’d like to have and a rough idea of your budget for food & drink. Think about what foods you and your fiancé enjoy and try to incorporate those. Or maybe a menu item that holds special significance. Starting to panic with the amount of options? No need to worry! Like we said above, the Country Pleasin’ team can lead you in designing a fully custom menu, charcuterie boards and more for your wedding day! By booking menu consultations with them, you can feel fully confident in your choices, while still not having to create the entire menu alone! The best part though is sampling their old fashioned cooked meat aka meat that’s been slow cooked for over four hours. Are you drooling yet?
Tips for Your DIY Wedding Menu
Even though you’ll have the pros to help guide you through the process of planning your own DIY wedding menu, there are a couple of things to consider! The team at Country Pleasin’ will be able to help you price out and cover the amount of guests you have, so you don’t have to worry about running short on food. However, do keep in mind about any guests dietary restrictions! That’s another plus on creating your own DIY wedding menu; you can control what food is offered and your food sensitive guests will definitely appreciate it! Also, don’t forget to plan ahead for any hot or cold dishes and how to prep/deliver those to your venue if there’s not a kitchen on-site.
