I think three weeks should be plenty in regards to marrying/short honeymoon as long as you do have a day or two to wind down and get ready for school afterwards! If you think it would be too stressful, have you considered just taking a week for the ceremony/getting ready/etc… and waiting until fall break to take your honeymoon?

I am a teacher as well.  I took the Thursday and Friday off to prepare for my wedding and the whole next week off for my honeymoon.  Have you thought about taking some time off during the school year (nothing crazy).  I was also a first year teacher at the time and I had no problems getting the time off because I have a set number of days to take off and use however I want.  I think it’s totally doable to get married in August.  Personally, I had a 14 month engagement and for MANY of those months I didn’t do a single thing towards planning my wedding so a shorter engagement would have been just fine.

I’m a teacher as well, but I’m no help because I planned an early July wedding so I could have the whole summer to go on my honeymoon.

Could you get married like a Thursday or a Friday before a vacation week, like maybe Easter so you can take that day off and have the entire week off from work?

I’m a substitute teacher as well, and we purposely held off on booking the honeymoon until about a month before the wedding, so that we could be sure I wouldn’t be offered a contract.  If I had a contract, I would have taken off the Friday before the wedding, and the Monday/Tuesday following for a short minimoon, and we would have taken a longer honeymoon in the summer.

I’m a teacher as well. We got engaged in October, and I knew I wanted to get married in the summer. I didn’t want to wait over a year and a half, so we had an eight month engagement. It is enough time to plan everything.

Fiance and I are both teachers also. We got engaged June 30 and planned our wedding for November, the Saturday before Thanksgiving, so that we’d have that week off to recover. We aren’t taking a honeymoon until the summer though. My engagement will be 4.5 months total.
