That’s what I’m doing – Wednesday, Thursday and Friday off.

Unless you’re doing your own flowers or some other major part of the decorating, I think that’s more than enough time.  I’ve even debated only taking 2 days off before.

I only took off the day before (Friday) and it was fine. I didn’t really have a lot of last minute projects going on, so there wasn’t really a need to take more time off, plus I wanted to use my vacation days for my honeymoon!

I’m getting married on a Sunday, only taking off that Friday before.  So 2 days for me.

I’m just taking the thursday and friday off before my saturday wedding. Realistically everything should be done by then, and if it’s not I’ll probably just scrap it.

My wedding is on a Friday and I’m working that Monday but taking the rest of the week off. I think 3 days is plenty as long as you don’t have a ridiculous amount of stuff to get done. My goal is to have everything done and packed a week before the wedding so I can spend the days leading up to the big day just relaxing and getting pampered.

I’m getting married on a Sunday and I will be taking Thursday and Friday off. Since I’ll already have Saturday off that’ll give me 3 days.

2 weeks but that is because I am officially done with work on Friday (laid off).  I have planning across country so it will be nice to be “on location” for 2 weeks to finish projects without a time crunch.

Otherwise I was planning to fly home a week early, work the first two days from hmoe and take 3 days off prior.  I do have DIY projects I need to do.

We’ll probably end up taking off the Thursday and the Friday before, but we may also just take off the Friday.

I’ll likely only take 2 days before the wedding.  The wedding is AT my job, and we live 3 minutes away, so not too much to worry about there.  If it wasn’t for the whirlwind that is my mother I would feel confident working with only taking the day before off, but i’ll need another day to reign her in (and whatever boxes of nonsense she brings over from her house).

No huge DIYs here, just some minor decor which I’ll be doing the day before with some help.

We will be taking off at least the Thursday/Friday before off (Saturday wedding) depending on where we use our other vacay time we might use a bit more (we have to travel for the wedding so we haven’t finalized anything yet).
