Kslim13:  Does your time off get approved by direct management or HR? 

It seems like if it’s not in your employee handbook you should get the time off.

Getting married on a Saturday, I am taking off the Wed, Thurs & Friday prior. Then the whole week after our wedding for the honeymoon. So total I am off 12 days but my work is closed weekends so that includes two weekends as well. 8 days off of actual work time. I am lucky though my work didn’t have any issue with my request at all. Good luck! I hope it works out for you

I work a Monday to Friday job and I am taking 3 days off before the wedding and 5 after. So with weekends included I will be off 12 days.

We delayed our honeymoon, because I didn’t have enough vacation time.  Technically, I have four weeks of vacation, but as an attorney with a billing requirement of 2000 hours a year, four weeks never happens.  We took four days off for our wedding.  We had a Destination Wedding.  I’m taking 12 working days off in April for our honeymoon.  We’re going to Asia for 15 days.  My job is pretty flexible as soon as you meet your billing requirement.  I guess I will be working nights and weekends!

Saturday wedding, so, taking off the entire week before to prepare. Then, we leave Monday for our honeymoon which is 10 days. Get back mid-week but I’m not going back til the following Monday. So, I’m taking off 3 full weeks- all paid vacation, thankfully. Same with the Fiance. 

As long as I ask for the PTO in advance and I have the time, I can take whatever I need. It’s all accrued so I’ve been saving it up.

Sorry yours is such a hassle, Bee! If you don’t even like your job and you guys are cool with one salary maybe you should just use this as an opportunity to have an awesome honeymoon then come back and focus on doing something you love!

I was very very lucky that I had accumulated long service leave so I had 17 weeks off. I took 5 weeks off before the wedding then we travelled for 11 weeks. I’ve just gone back to work and it’s been a huge shock!

I have booked 18 working days, but with weekends and a bank holiday, I have 27 days total!!! No problem booking them, they had plenty of notice, and it would be expected!

I had 2½ weeks off work around our wedding (but that includes Christmas and New Year) and then another 2½ weeks off work for our honeymoon (including the Easter holidays). In actual time, I was off work for about 5 weeks in total for our wedding and honeymoon, but I only used 18 days of my vacation time (7 days for the end of year holidays and our wedding and 11 days for our honeymoon and Easter trip) thanks to the timing of the holidays in relation to weekends (my office is only open M-F and closed on public holidays).

Im taking off just over 2.5 weeks for our wedding and honeymoon. I took off 3 work days before my wedding and then 10 work days for my honeymoon and the day I return is a holiday so I will have 20 straight days of no work. I put in 10 months ahead of time and my boss is flexible so it wasn’t a problem, hopefully they grant you the time you asked for!
