Do you think it is rude or unprofessional to give two weeks notice and then go on vaction (a long weekend, taking 3 days off) and then finish up the remainder of your two weeks? I’ve already booked the time off work for a friends wedding (I can’t cancel). Would it be better to give three weeks notice knowing I’ll be away for some of it?
I’ve been at my current office job for 3+ years and like the people a lot, so I don’t want to burn bridges…I already have another job lined up and I’m just trying to figure out a start date.

It doesn’t matter IMO. The point of the 2 weeks is so that they can find someone to replace you. It does not matter if you are there or not. As long as that week and a half is enough time for you to finish things up and clean out your desk, I seriously think you’re good to go. The 2 weeks benefits you for future reference purposes. They won’t give you a bad reference over this, and it especially doesn’t matter if you have another job planned.
But 3 is always more polite, vacation or not.

Id give them a full two weeks after your vacay to make sure you go off on a positive note.

The longer notice is perfectly acceptable
