A DIY Wedding!!

Avery had such fond memories from her dad Craig’s “end of summer” pig roasts, it was exactly the feeling she wanted to create when she and her fiancé Nathan got married. 

"my dad has done about 5 large "end of summer" pig roasts using Shaws DIY pig roast. He has about 80 people who attend for drinks, games and of course the pig. It has always been such a hit - people love seeing the pig on the charcoal bbq."

With the decision made to hold the wedding at Nathan’s parents house in Owen Sound, Avery started searching for a DIY provider in the area. When she couldn’t find a DIY charcoal option, she reached out to Tom and Terri-Lynn. 

"when I found out I could not only pick up on Friday and return DIRTY on Monday before 11 am AND they have an option to rent a proper size cooler, I quickly booked with Shaws."

A look at Shaws website and Avery learned she could add salads to her order. Without debate, she added potato salad, coleslaw, and pasta salad. While not technically “catered”, Avery saw the pre-made salads as a lifesaver for her DIY wedding. 

"this option took away so much of my stress. The amount of salad you get for the price and the unreal taste, you cannot beat this... I had 80 people attend and absolutely everyone LOVED the idea of having a pig roast at a wedding - no one had heard of this idea. Everyone was raving about the salads and of course the pig."

Forever and Always Simcoe did a lovely job capturing the fun and intimate atmosphere at Avery and Nathan’s wedding.  Avery tells us it was so relaxed, full of laughter, dancing and good food.  Typical of a pig roast. 

"Something about a pig roast brings people together in a different way. Shaws is literally a one stop shop - they provide everything you need to host a party, in my case wedding, they are so SO lovely to speak to and their prices are unreal - we will continue to use Shaws for our future parties."

We are thrilled the pig roast worked out for Avery and Nathan, and we wish them much happiness together.  We also thank Avery for her kind words and for sharing her experience with us.  Thanks Avery!
