I’m planning on taking the Friday before off.  We can do the decorating the day/night before and early the next day. I’ll probably have all the DIY stuff done LONG before then, so the only thing to worry with will be the food.

I’m taking a week before but that is because it is going to take one whole day to get there. Then I’ll have time to do last minute things as well as visit and relax before hand. We aren’t taking a holiday this year, so this is our holiday, might as well make the most of it. I also have the whole week off after!

I took a full week but I did all of my planning long-distance and needed to be on-location for some final last minute things.

Plus – all of my wedding dress alterations were happening that week at home (aka near the wedding) so I kind of had to be in town for that too!

I took 1/2 day on Wed, and all TH and Friday (thanks to the hive!) but I really wish I took the whole week off.  There was an unexpected family emergency two weekend before the wedding and I lost that entire weekend to do things.  That set me back and I would have loved the extra days to get things done.  I literally got about 2-3 hours of sleep in those nights before and while I loved the rush … it would have felt better to feel like less of a chicken with her head cut off!

I’m quitting my job a month before the wedding. Not only to get the last wedding details together but because I’m also moving to New York the day after, so I have to plan that as well, ship stuff, and pack!

Wow, um, I’m only taking off the Friday before my Saturday wedding.  Would’ve taken off more, but I’m using a lot of my Vacation time on a trip with my family the month prior.

FH and I are doing a ceremony with just us on the beach but we have to drive 2 hours to get to Sunset Beach so we’re taking off Friday only and leaving Thursday night after work for the hotel. We want all of Friday to relax, do some sight seeing, make sure we have everything and just enjoy the beach before Saturday. We’re coming home Monday morning so we have an entire day there after the ceremony too and then we have Monday to get settled back home and ready for work on Tuesday

I am taking Weds, Thurs, and Friday off before and Monday after. I am doing my own flowers and they will be here on that Weds so I wanted to be able to strip them down and prep them well in advance.

Currently I’m planning on none, directly before.  Friday is a holiday and we are getting married on Sunday, so I will have 2 days off before hand.  I think I am taking 11 days pto for the honeymoon, but I will be out of the office for almost 3 weeks total factoring in paid holidays.

My wedding is out of town. I’m flying out after work on Wednesday and arriving around midnight. I’ll only have Thursday and Friday before my wedding.

Since we live 500 miles away from where we’re getting married, I’ll be taking a week off before the wedding. This is mostly because we’re doing all of the decor and food, etc.

Also, Fiance and his Groomsmen want to do a bachelor party the wednesday before, so we wanted to have time before that to help set up as well. Plus, it’ll be nice to not be driving 500 miles a few days before the wedding!
