    I’m not currently working, which has been great for me. I like being able to take my time with all the wedding planning and relax during the days leading up to it.

    We still have some time but I think I am going to take 2 1/2 days before the Wedding (1/2 wed, and then thurs and fri). And then I will have the whole following week for the honeymoon plus 3 more days (mon-wed) after. In total my full 2 weeks. FI is super lucky and a teacher and will be off all summer before and have a few days after before the new school year.

    I was working a part-time job at the time (Mon, Tues, Fri)… So, I took 3 days off in the week before the wedding, but it gave me a full week off 🙂

    My wedding is on a Saturday, I’m taking Thursday and Friday off. I don’t have a ton of DIY, but Thursday I’ll do a major delivery to our reception site of all the random stuff they’ll need, and I’ll go with the boys to pick up their tuxes to make sure they all fit properly.  And Friday is the rehearsal, which is relatively early in the evening (5ish), and since I work an hour and change away, there’s really no reason for me to go to work.

    We leave for our honeymoon the Monday after the wedding, and come back not that Friday but the following, so I’ll take two full weeks off after, then have a weekend to decompress and get ready to head back to reality.

    I need to answer differently because since I posted fi got a new job and I got a job. So not sure how much fi will take off before the wedding.  I’ll maybe take the week off (Wedding is Sunday).  I only work 3 days a week so I just won’t work that week.  Then I’ll take time off for the honeymoon (I think 2 weeks after the wedding).  The job I have now is temporary (just to help pay for wedding stuff) so I won’t need it after the wedding.

    Oh crap, I voted wrong. I put the total number of days off….woops. We’re taking off 3 days before, and 5 days after, plus there are 4 regular days off in there, so we will have a total of 12 days off. Puerto Rico here we come!
