castela1389 :  Don’t say anything durring the interview.  If you are offered the job, then discuss your wedding/honeymoon.  You may find you can push your start date back, or you may find that they will say no, but wait until the offer.

Interview.  If they offer you the job, then bring up your wedding and pre-planned vacation. You can discuss how they feel about it then.  Most jobs would be flexible with something like this, unless it’s a busy season or something for your industry.

castela1389 :  I agree with PPs – don’t mention anything during the interview. If they offer, bring it up and see what they say. This actually happened with someone my boyfriend wanted to hire – he was going to start and then take 3 weeks off for his honeymoon and it was totally fine. He ended up not taking the job for other reasons, but I think most places wouldn’t be too worried about a honeymoon.

Unless a company is in a huge hurry (which isn’t necessarily a great sign in itself, depending on the circumstances) they won’t mind you pushing back your start date a little. If you get an offer, let them know then. 

Bear in mind that especially with career-type jobs, hiring is rarely immediate. I just went through the job search process in a new city and it took 2 weeks to make it through all three interviews, and then a week between the verbal offer and a written offer. And then another two weeks to make it through the background check and HR preparations. Your timing may not be much of an issue at all.

Don’t say anything during the interview, let them know once you’re offered the job
