To be honest, I don’t think your manicure will last through the whole week.  I’ve had pro manicures chip the next day (usually they last me about 3 days before they start to really get bad though, but I’m rough on my hands).  

It is a bit tough to touch up a French manicure for two reasons.  One is that you would have to have the exact shade of white and pink that the manicurist used, and they pick out different ones depending on your skin tone (one way to ensure it’s the same color is to bring your own polish though, something I would recommend to any bride who wants to be all set for touchups).  The other thing is that the white tips are painted first, then the pink layer goes OVER them to give it a softer look.  Touching up a chip would involve painting the white, then going over it with the pink, which is tough to do and keep the even look that you want in a French manicure.  

You can get a manicure in under 20 minutes. I definitely recommend finding time to get it done in the day or two before the wedding.

Have you considered getting gel or acrylic nails? That would last for the whole week and you could could them with a French tip.
