First off, Congrats!!! I too am on the verge of looking for another job. It depends on your boss but being upfront about it is definitely be the best idea. If they’re not understanding that you have a wedding in 2 months which you’ve been planning for, then you might want to rethink about taking the job. If they have problems and are not flexible with something this important now, just think about what else they might have problems with in the future!

One of the girls I used to work with took a week vacation a couple of weeks after she’s was hired. It totally depends on your boss. Good Luck!!

I would go ahead with taking the new job, as long as you tell them about the upcoming wedding and make sure it won’t be an issue. If you don’t have paid time off right away, you might have to take unpaid time off, but other than that, I don’t think it would be an issue most places!

I’ve started jobs by letting the employer know I had already scheduled something requiring time off beforehand.  Depending on the situation, they may delay your start date or just give it to you unpaid.  They want to hire you, so it should not be an issue.  But def. let ’em know ASAP.  The worst thing you could do is start and then tell them yuo’re leaving for 2 weeks.

Congrats!  I’m doing the same thing.  I start my new job today (gulp), and am leaving for wedding/honeymoon on the 15th.  They accomodated my needs without a problem!
