    I work overnights, so I’ll work Thursday night, off Friday, Saturday (my weekend) & took Sunday night off. Back to work on Monday night! So basically I took one night off.

    Fiance took the week off after the wedding….we’re taking our honeymoon in February so we’re both taking a week off then.

    Since I’m in college I’ll only have a part time job, but I’ll take off somewhere between 3-5 days before, Saturday and Sunday, and will probably be available for work Monday. The only reason I’d even take more than a day or two off is because I’m getting married an hour and a half from where I live, since the wedding’s in my hometown, so I need to be there to do anything 😛

    My company is giving me 10 days off (as a wedding gift)! And I am taking every single one of them.  Yay!

    I am taking the Fri before and Monday after, then the following weekend we are doing a mini-moon so we are both taking off that Fri and Mon. So 4 days total for me.

    I’m a teacher.  I scheduled the wedding to be about a week and a half after summer break started.  I go back tomorrow.   Obviously that isn’t the norm, but I would have taken the week off before and another week or more after.

    Our wedding is a Saturday, and I’ll probably take off the Weds-Fri before, and maybe the whole week after just to bask in newlywed bliss and relax a bit. Depends on how many PTO days I have left at that point, what all needs done before the wedding, and whether or not we go on a honeymoon right after. (I don’t want to take non-PTO days off because at my company we have to make those up, so I don’t want to be going in early and staying late every day for weeks to make up for like 40 missed hours!)

    I took a total of 14 days.  Monday was a holiday, then I took off the 4 days before, had the wedding, then 10 more working days for honeymoon.

    Our wedding is on a Friday so I’ll be working Monday and Tuesday then taking off the rest of the week through the following Tuesday. We don’t leave for our Honeymoon until 2 weeks later but we’ll be taking off another week for that.

    I took a couple days off before and a week afterward.  We didn’t go on a honeymoon right afterward.

    I teach at a university and my other work is based on my own business, so I scheduled mine during winter semester break. I will have no work 2 weeks before and a week after…

    I really admire the bees who have full time jobs that week before the wedding!

    I took from the tuesday before the wedding to two mondays after the wedding.  I have  290435734875 DIY’s to finish the few days before so there was no way I could work up until the day.

    I am taking off wed-fri before our Saturday wedding, then probably take off that Monday, too. Our honey is 12 days later..we leave on a thursday. So i think im taking that wednesday off…I have thanksgiving and the day after off so in total I will take off 7 days for our 10 day honeymoon…so a total of 12 days.

    My company gives me 5 extra days as a wedding gift. So for my 13 days off that I get a year (counting the 5 they give me) I will take 12 of them just for the wedding lol. I didn’t take one vacation day yet this year!
