Miranda Lambert's working on her wedding customs: something old, something new, something borrowed and a package of chopped-up meat from that deer she shot.

Yes, with her wedding merely days away, the bride-to-be is making—and  tweeting about—her last-minute chores before Saturday's trip to the aisle with Blake Shelton.

And that includes packing some deer cutlets butchered from a Bambi she slayed.

And the country cutie isn't shy about her love of venison.

"Last thing loaded for the wedding!!! Harvested!!!!!" Lambert tweeted, attaching a pic of her holding the meat.

The butcher paper is stamped with "DEER CUTLETS" with Lambert's named scrawled underneath. The processing was done by their local Butler's B&B, the Madill, Okla.-based butcher where Lambert and Shelton take all their trophies for processing.

A Butler's employee tells E! News that the duo come in occasionally during the October-December hunting season with deer they've bagged.

"Miranda, Blake, Blake's dad, they all love to hunt," said the staffer. "You get the meat and you just freeze it until you need it. I've seen her in here a few times, they all hunt and both their families."

Apparently Lambert and her two wedding planners  are taking care of the menu. As for Shelton?

The Voice judge told us a couple months ago that "the only thing I had a hand in is the music."

Wife shooting the dinner...husband wrangling some rockin' tunes. Sounds like it's going to be quite the party!
