Your wedding is too far away for this to be a concern during the interview. By April, you will be allowed personal days and vacation says.

I’m not a teacher, but my instinct tells me to save any talk of the wedding or days you need off until after you receive a job offer (good luck!).  Sometimes your requested days off can even be written into an offer letter.  

I was job hunting right before my wedding (still am, with an end in sight soon!) and I brought the wedding up in an interview.  I think it was a mistake because I imagine a male interviewer could assume that a woman is less invested in her career once she gets married.  There is even some debate that a woman shouldn’t wear a blingy engagement ring to a job interview.  I’d be interested to hear what your fellow teachers have to say.

@ButtercupBetty:  You should be able to use a personal day. I dont see why not. But I wouldnt mention it at the interview, its next year so your fine! Good luck!!

If it’s an inservice day I’m sure you would be able to miss- you might have to get special permission.  But I’m sure the day off would be granted since it’s right after your wedding.  Definitely do not mention this during the interview as it should not be a deciding factor.
