    Define “just started”. Also I would just ask your boss what number of days would be appropriate. That way you don’t take too many, but can hopefully still take enough.

    I’d try to sit down with her and let her know you are happy with your job and don’t want to risk losing it so you want to take time off that is acceptable to her and the company but allows you time for what you need/want.  If you do have something in mind you could say “In a perfect world I’d take from this day to that day.  However, what I really need is this to that.  I would really appreciate your input as you know best how much time off is appropriate within the company and our area”… (dept/floor/whole thing if it’s small/etc)…” and at what point my not being there could cause an issue for others, so I’d like to make this something we agree on together.”.

    I didn’t vote because I’m taking exactly a week and a half off (4 day work week).  But I just told my boss… I’m a temp who’s been there almost two years, so what’s she going to do, fire me?  Yeah, if I couldn’t find a job ASAP I’d take a hit getting unemployment but I wouldn’t loose benefits or anything (cause I have none… but this job is killer for my resume).

     @cassandra102012:  If you’ve been there for two months, I think its ok to ask for at least a week (a few days before and a few days after). I like the way Deviantelf phrased it with an ideal time and a time you absolutely need. Even if your actual ideal time is the minimum you ask for, it might be a good bargaining tool to get a few extra days after the wedding.
