I haven’t official put in for the time off, but I will be taking off October 1 (possibly working a bit from home on the 1st/2nd) through 15. Our wedding is 10/4 and honeymoon is the 6th-13th. We get back from the honeymoon at 11:45 pm on the 13th, and our hometown is 1.5 hrs from the airport, and then we will have to get all of our stuff and get back to our home (3.5 hours from our hometown). It’s going to be a long time off but I have a great employer so I’m not at all concerned.

Wedding on Oct 4. I’m taking the week before and the week after to spend time with out of town guests.  They flew over 10 hrs to attend my wedding, so I would like to spend time with these closed friends and family.. 

Honeymoon would push to 2015

  • Wedding: June 2014 - Ontario, Canada ♥ EDD- April 2016

I’m taking June 6th-July 1st off for our June 14th wedding and honeymoon. I just work as a cashier when I’m not in school so I have a ton of flexibility when it comes to booking off days. The only issue is that I don’t get paid during that time. My FI is using some personal days and his vacation time to take the 13th-30th off from work so at least one of us will get paid aha (:

BreezyBride24:  I’m taking off Wednesday May 21-May 30th! My wedding is May 24 too! I just don’t want to be stressed that week before and I know my mind will be elsewhere so I would be useless at work anyways! Plus I’ve been hording my vacation time for the past year to take so much off! Honeymoon is May 26 (holiday, yay don’t have to use my vacation time!) and we get back Saturday on the 31st! Giving us that Sunday to get relax at home before going back to the grind!

I’m taking off the day before and the week after. I can take off as much as I want but I don’t think there will be much to do though.

I’m planning on taking Thursday – Monday. Honeymoon will probably be in 2015. FI is a grad student and his schedule is all over the place and we can’t plan it yet.

My wedding was a Friday, so obviously I didn’t work that day! I also took Wednesday and Thursday off in addition to 2 weeks for the honeymoon right after.

I had planned to take the thursday and friday off before my wedding.  Then the government shut down 3 weeks before.  Oh how I wished I was a procrasting bride but I barely had anything to do in those 3 weeks.

I was off a total of 5 weeks including 2 for the honeymoon.  It really felt funny to go back to work.

BreezyBride24:  It was all about not having a 6 am flight the day after the wedding and also conserving vacation days by using the holiday week.
