    Our wedding is on a Friday and in another city.  So we are flying out of here Tuesday night.  I will be at work Monday and Tuesday, and take Wed and Thurs off, so I guess that means 2 days before the wedding, 3 days of the week including the wedding.  We’ll leave from the wedding city for our honeymoon on Sunday and be there for 9 days.  I’ll probably be off a total of a little over 2 weeks.

    Well, we are having our reception a Friday night, so I am taking that Friday off. But our private DW is our HM too so we are taking 10 days off for that 🙂

    Taking off the Friday before our Sunday wedding. Also, going on a mini-honeymoon Monday-Wednesday. Back to work on Thursday. So 4 days off total. But my boss is encouraging me to take the entire week off after the wedding.

    I’m planning on taking 3 days but it may end up being one or two more.

    I don’t have a full time job at the moment. If I still don’t by wedding time I will be taking off the week before and 2 weeks after for the honeymoon! If I do, I leave the Thursday before Saturday DW wedding, and still take the honeymoon since its booked.

    I honestly can’t remember. I think I took off the week before, but I do know that DH took off 3 days.  Funny how details like that have escaped me, now 9 months after our wedding!

    I’m taking 3 weeks off in total. That totals 15 vacation days. I’m taking 5 for the wedding week, and 10 for our honeymoon <3. So excited!

    We got married over Veterans day, so I took Thursday and Monday and had Friday off. I wish I had taken more time, I was so not ready to go back on Tuesday and actually cried all day because I was so tired.

    By the time the wedding rolls around I’ll have finished my Master’s and be finishing out the school year subbing, so even if I work up til the very last day of school I’d still have 3 weeks. 🙂
