I’m only taking off the two days before my wedding, Thursday and Friday. my fiance’s parents are flying in on Thursday, so it works out well. So I’ll work my regular Monday-Wednesday from 7-5 (Tues 9-5), and have two days to tie all loose ends etc.

Then I will be off until the following Monday. It’s a total of only 6 works days actually, because the Monday is Memorial Day. So that will be nice.

I’m taking 5 weeks off since we are moving at the same time. I’m starting a new job after the honeymoon so it works out perfectly!

I’m taking the Tuesday before off, but we’re driving 12 hours to the wedding. I’m taking unpaid leave for the honeymoon 🙁

  • Wedding: May 2010

I’m only taking off the day before the wedding. Its about a 30 min drive from home, so I don’t have too far to go plus Fiance has no job so we really need the money. If he gets a job before the wedding, than I’ll take off 2 days before.

Then its honeymoon for a week & after the honeymoon, I go back to work the next day or possibly 2 days.

Where I work, I can take off as much time as I want, but its more dependant upon Fiance getting a job so I can actually afford the extra time off.

I’m taking Wed-Fri off before the wedding (wedding is on a Saturday) and then two weeks off after for the honeymoon – I’ve saved up my vacation days for a LONG time in order to do this!

Im resigning about 2-3 weeks before.  We will likely also be moving to a new city so I will have to prep for that as well.

Short answer: 1 week before, a week after & 3 days after the honeymoon.

Explanation: Like @Ranaki, I think THIS is one area that it ROCKS to be a teacher.  We scheduled the wedding for a week after the end of the school year (our Out of Town guest will start flying in the Sunday of that weekend – 5 days before the wedding, so we’ll be busy visiting, as well as with last minute details) & will return from our honeymoon 3 days before Start-of-the-Year teacher conferences.  In order for the both of us to enjoy our 5 week honeymoon, Fiance is leaving his present position a week before the wedding & starting his new position a week after we get back from the honeymoon (we return on a Tues, he starts the following Mon).  Additionally, so that I could be in the States for Independence day (I missed it last year), we’re not leaving for our honeymoon for a week (to spend more time with Out of Town guests & take care of insurance & name changes).
