  • Wedding: September 2016 - Riverview at Wicomico Shores

I started a new job less than 3 months ago and my PTO kicks in just in time for the honeymoon (literally the day it starts), so I was originally going to work the day before our wedding rather than lose the day’s pay. We have some DIY, including the decorating, and I decided that it will be worth my sanity to take the day off, paid or not.

I’m already feeling pressure with it being just three weeks out so I probably would be useless if I tried to work the day before the wedding 😀

My wedding is still of course months off and things could change.  However, we’re getting married on a Saturday and I plan to take a Thur/Fri off.  We will have a lot of out of town family coming in so would be good to greet them.  Plus, I want that extra time to finish off any last minute details.

I won’t be, but mine is a Destination Wedding so we are travelling out early to get set up.

I have at least the day before off, maybe 2. I work over night shifts, so definitely needed Thursday night off before our Friday wedding! I think I’ll work Sunday, then either Monday or Tuesday for my second shift of the week, and be off Wednesday and Thursday with the wedding on Friday… then I have another 2 weeks after that! 🙂 I’m almost looking forward to my extended vacation more than the wedding (aside from actually getting to marry my fiance of course!)

I am getting married on a Saturday, and I am taking off both the Thursday and Friday before just so I am not stressing at work about the wedding.

tiffany7 :  I got married on a Friday evening and I took the Thursday before off. I was up at 7 getting ready on Friday cause we did a first look and took all our pictures before the ceremony. Thursday, I went to lunch with our moms, sisters, and close friends of mine before going to get our nails done and then we had our rehearsal dinner that night as well. I was able to spend more time with my out of town guests that way so I really enjoyed it.

We got married on a Saturday evening. Fiance and I took the prior Friday off. A lot of the wedding planning had been completed a full week beforehand so there wasn’t much to do except some centerpieces and low-key rehearsal BBQ at our condo.
