Just curious to know how everyone plans to schedule vacation/away time from work around the time of their big day. My vacation begins that Wednesday before our Saturday celebration and ends not the Tuesday immediately afterwards, but the week following, so I’ll have just about 2 weeks off.

I work overnights, so I’ll work Thursday night, off Friday, Saturday (my weekend) & took Sunday night off. Back to work on Monday night! So basically I took one night off.
Fiance took the week off after the wedding….we’re taking our honeymoon in February so we’re both taking a week off then.

Since I’m in college I’ll only have a part time job, but I’ll take off somewhere between 3-5 days before, Saturday and Sunday, and will probably be available for work Monday. The only reason I’d even take more than a day or two off is because I’m getting married an hour and a half from where I live, since the wedding’s in my hometown, so I need to be there to do anything 😛

My company is giving me 10 days off (as a wedding gift)! And I am taking every single one of them. Yay!

I am taking the Fri before and Monday after, then the following weekend we are doing a mini-moon so we are both taking off that Fri and Mon. So 4 days total for me.

I’m a teacher. I scheduled the wedding to be about a week and a half after summer break started. I go back tomorrow. Obviously that isn’t the norm, but I would have taken the week off before and another week or more after.

Our wedding is a Saturday, and I’ll probably take off the Weds-Fri before, and maybe the whole week after just to bask in newlywed bliss and relax a bit. Depends on how many PTO days I have left at that point, what all needs done before the wedding, and whether or not we go on a honeymoon right after. (I don’t want to take non-PTO days off because at my company we have to make those up, so I don’t want to be going in early and staying late every day for weeks to make up for like 40 missed hours!)

I took a total of 14 days. Monday was a holiday, then I took off the 4 days before, had the wedding, then 10 more working days for honeymoon.

oops I answered wrong. I am taking 3 days before and then 7 days after for the honeymoon.

Our wedding is on a Friday so I’ll be working Monday and Tuesday then taking off the rest of the week through the following Tuesday. We don’t leave for our Honeymoon until 2 weeks later but we’ll be taking off another week for that.

I took a couple days off before and a week afterward. We didn’t go on a honeymoon right afterward.

I teach at a university and my other work is based on my own business, so I scheduled mine during winter semester break. I will have no work 2 weeks before and a week after…
I really admire the bees who have full time jobs that week before the wedding!

I took from the tuesday before the wedding to two mondays after the wedding. I have 290435734875 DIY’s to finish the few days before so there was no way I could work up until the day.

I am taking off wed-fri before our Saturday wedding, then probably take off that Monday, too. Our honey is 12 days later..we leave on a thursday. So i think im taking that wednesday off…I have thanksgiving and the day after off so in total I will take off 7 days for our 10 day honeymoon…so a total of 12 days.
My company gives me 5 extra days as a wedding gift. So for my 13 days off that I get a year (counting the 5 they give me) I will take 12 of them just for the wedding lol. I didn’t take one vacation day yet this year!
