I’ll be taking a full two weeks including the honeymoon, which will be 7-8 days, but I work for myself. Depends on how much I have left to do, I guess, but I wouldn’t be able to focus on work past Wed, that’s for sure!

I took a week off but I was planning my wedding long distance and had to fly down to take care of a lot minute details.  I was completely unproductive at work starting about 2-3 weeks before the wedding anyway.

I plan on taking 2 1/2 weeks off.  2 days prior to the wedding and the rest for a 10 day honeymoon and taking care of post-wedding business!

I am taking a week, but that’s because of the Christmas Holiday.  And since family doesn’t live where we do, doesn’t make sense to take off for Christmas then come back, then leave again, haha.  Hopefully everything will be done by then and I can just relax with family!

I was home 10 days before my wedding because I was planning an out of state wedding.  I live in Seattle and the wedding was in Philly where we used to live before I moved.

ETP:  Also, I might add that I planned 95% of my wedding because my parents and his parents were not helpfull whatsoever… so that why I needed all the time.  If you got people helping, it really helps out.  I just prefered to be in control of everything.

I was also so unproductive at work a few weeks before the wedding.

I will probably take Wed, Thur, And Friday before the wedding, and then maybe a few days for a mini moon. So Probably the 1st-8th of September. Just about a week. Nothing too long.

3-4 days before, but only because the wedding is 3+ hours from our hometown, so I can’t do much in the weeks leading up to it. Then two weeks for the honeymoon.

My wedding is across the country too, so I’m taking 3 days off before the wedding and then a full week afterwards for the honeymoon.

I’ll be home about 10 days before the wedding – planning a Connecticut wedding from Ireland.  The weekend before is Easter so I get a few days off around then.  Then the wedding, then a few days with out of town guests, then back to Ireland and another ceremony/reception a couple weeks later when I’ll probably need a few more days off – this doesn’t even include the honeymoon!  I think I’m going to ask about time off unpaid – I’ll probably need it… *sigh*

The big factor in deciding this is where we’re going to select for our venue.  That will help decide alot, including my time off.

T’s flexible with his time frame.  Now my job?  They aren’t nearly as much. 

But since my coworker got married this summer and took 2 weeks off, I think they should be down w/that.  🙂
