    My wedding is on a Saturday and I am taking off the 5 work days (M-F) leading up to it! I am a DIY bride (centerpieces, decor, linens, bouquets, corsages, bouts, etc.) so there are a lot of last minute things I need to do before the big day!

    I finished up on the Friday the week before our wedding (on a Saturday) so 8 days before. I was run off my feet from then ’til two days after the wedding. I had a spa day on the Thursday but mostly I was just insanely busy with the cake and final prep.

    I have no idea, but it will be at least 3. I don’t need a whole week off, I highly doubt I will have any DIY so anytime off I take will just be for the pure need of time to relax.

    I’m taking off about 2 days before the wedding and will then be gone the entire two weeks after the wedding.

    I only took the day before the wedding off.  I had gotten everything that needed to be done without taking anymore time off and I had a lot of help that day before.  I did also take that Monday off too, and I’m SO glad I did because DH and I ended up running around doing post-wedding things (dropping off rented decor/wine glasses, paying vendors, dropping off my ring to get soldered).

    We were married on a Friday. I took a half day the Tuesday before and was off through the Tuesday after. We didn’t leave for our HM until 2 weeks later.

    I took off the Thursday and Friday before my wedding to wrap up last-minute details and run any errands.  Our rehearsal dinner was on Friday night, too.  Oh and PS, I also voted for “my coworkers will drive me nuts the week of my wedding” because they DID!  Oye.  “Is this done, did you do that, are you nervous, are you excited, it’s coming up, ((hums here comes the bride))…etc. etc. etc.”  🙂

    I’m taking the week (and a day) before and the week (and two days) after… I figured I had 2 weeks off and 2 personal days and that seemed like an appropriate reason to use them. I’ll probably have things to do but I’m hoping I can just sit around a little and try to grow my nails lol.

    I’ll probably do Wednesday to Wednesday.  We’re doing our honeymoon two months later so I’ll be taking a chunk of time off then.

    Im taking the week before and after the wedding. I was allowed 2 weeks for vacation time, and my boss was totally cool with it.

    I took the two days prior off. It’s been hard to concentrate this week! The wedding is next week. 🙂

    I only work one day a week, as of now, and that’s on a Thursday. If that’s still my schedule a year from now, I’ll work it, have the rehearsal the next day, then the wedding the day after. Yay!

    We’ll see though. Things should be changing soon, so I really have no idea.
