Yes I think you’re being a little unreasonable. As a bride I understand you have to get stuff done. As an employer your personal shouldn’t interfere with work. All of the lawyers I know pretty much live at work, its the sacrifice you make for that field.

I got a new job a few months before my wedding as well as started getting cases for my independent contractor side job. It was soo unbelievably stressful because there are so many things that need to be done last minute. I would definitely recommend making sure you have some free time to do all the wedding stuff. You don’t want to have any regrets. That being said, the wedding is only one day and is only the beginning of your future together so I definitely wouldn’t do anything to compromise your career either.

I work three jobs and all of them, at some point, require me to work weekends. None of them have offered me time off prior to the wedding, and since I’m hourly, I can’t afford to ask for time off. I’m even being pressured to postpone my honeymoon. But, I don’t think they should make allowances for me the weekends leading up to it. My Fiance works 40 hours a week, many of those hours on weekends or weekday evenings, but he can’t take time off. We’re just making do. To me, a wedding isn’t something bosses are obligated to make allowances for.
