    • Wedding: July 2009

    In my ideal world I work up until the week of the wedding and then quit (i hate my job) and then go back to school to get my masters in the fall (our wedding is July).  Unfortunately, I am not sure if we are going to be able to pull it off financially and I may have to go back for about a month after the wedding. In that case I will take off a week after the wedding.

    That’s sad they hate when people take time off!  Especially for a wedding.  Glad you were able to make it happen anyway!

    I am taking two weeks off for the honeymoon.  I haven’t told my empolyer yet, it’s still in the works and 7 months away, but I dont anticipate any problems since  I have the vacation time, and others have taken big chunks of time off.  It’s really a great work enviroment, I consider myself pretty luck to be there.

    There should be a corporate law to give employees two days off before the actual wedding and two weeks after for the honeymoon. If you have accrued the time you should be able to take the time. It’s also good to ask for the time off well in advanced.

    I’ll be taking leave for two weeks.  The military doesn’t generally allow you a lot of time off, but I’m currently deployed so I deserve a little R&R when I get back.

    We don’t have the funds for a full honeymoon right after the wedding. Instead, we’ll be hanging out in Vegas for a couple of days after the ceremony. Hopefully the REAL honeymoon will happen next year. 🙂

    • Wedding: October 2009

    We both work at the same company and each have 3 weeks of vacation AND our company gives us an extra week off as a wedding gift!  So we are takng four weeks off!  It will be a little rough getting to October without taking any vacation days, but when we are on our 18 day European cruise, I think it will be worth it 🙂

    I’m an attorney and I got a lot of grief for asking for two days off before my wedding and the week after for my honeymoon. I wish I worked for a company like @emmeeay-L that gave me time off!

    emmeeay- that’s so wonderful they give you a week as a *gift!* 

    I’m taking three weeks total. I’m having a semi-destination wedding, so the first few days off are for my wedding, and then the rest are for my honeymoon!

     My boss was a little taken aback when I asked for three weeks. But I have tons of vacation time stored up, and a few others in my department have taken off 3 weeks for their wedding, so although its not the "norm" its also not unheard of.

    I was in between semesters in school when we got married, so I took what I needed.  My husband took about 4 days for the wedding and six months later he took nine days for the honeymoon (only seven of those were actually used for the honeymoon).

    Our honeymoon is 7 days but I am taking a total of 10 work days off for the wedding.  Hopefully no more but I guarantee I will be just a warm body at work the 2 days before I take off for the wedding!

    I’m currently finishing up graduate school, and do not have a job (for the first time since I was 16).  I will graduate in May, the wedding is one month later.  Our honeymoon is 7 days, and FI will have to get back to work.  I don’t know if I’ll head back to work or start work or take some time off to settle in or what!  I have several settings I can choose to work in, and right now the school is looking promising, as I most likely wouldn’t have to start until August and could have a month and a half off.  I guess we’ll see!

    I’m hoping to take a week off, but I work at an elementary school and our wedding is during the semester, so I suspect that I’ll only be "allowed" to take off 3 days.

    I teach and we’re getting married during the school year, so I’m lucky to have 6 days off (I had to make a special request).
