    I will be taking off three days before the wedding (maybe 2-2.5 but I’m counting on 3) and then 5 days the following week for our honeymoon!

    Three weeks total-one before, two after for the honeymoon.

    I literally said to  my boss “what is the absolute longest amount of vacation I can take at once?” she said three weeks, so that’s exactlly what I took! lol

    I quit my job the month before the wedding because I had to pack up my apartment to get ready for a cross country move as well. So, I didn’t work the month before or after the wedding.

    My wedding is on a Saturday, and I’m taking off that entire week (Monday-Friday) prior to the wedding day.

    I’m not currently working, but DH took a half day the day before our wedding and that’s it. He also took 2 days off after so we could settle in.

    3 days before and the whole week after. We’re doing a mini-honeymoon late in the week after the wedding but wanted a few days to spend with our friends and family from overseas, who won’t arrive till crunch time.

    I’m taking 10 days off, and I can’t wait! it’s my summer vacation too… 🙂

    4 days before the wedding, and then 5 days after. We are staying local and going on a weekend mini-moon to Whistler, which is a big resort town close to Vancouver (2010 olympics were there). 

    two more months!!

    I’m taking 1.5 weeks. The whole week before the wedding I am off (which is right now). I needed this time and I had been saving for months in order to use it. There is no way I would have all this done without this time off.

    none. I don’t work fridays as it is and get off at 3 on thursdays, so it’s not so bad. we are not going on an “official” honeymoon, except for a week in Lake Tahoe in July and then a 2 week cruise to the carribean in December. Fiancee has a whole week off before the wedding so I plan on giving him all the pre-wedding tasks so I don’t have to miss work. 🙂

    I am going to take off the Thursday and Friday before the wedding. Then I will be off the next work week, and won’t return to work until the Wednesday after that. I wanted more time after than before since we will probably drive to Florid, and that easily takes up 2 days to and from.
