    Due to other work commitments late May. We are taking a week off before and a week after. We haven’t had a proper break from work in ages. Back to work for like a week and a half and then another 3 weeks off. Can’t wait!

    We’re getting married on a Friday, but I plan on taking Thursday off, I think. We’ll see where I’m at by that time (as far as things being done and where I’m working), and I may just take off a half day.

    My wedding was on a Friday, and I took off Wednesday and Thursday. In hindsight, I wish I had taken one more day, but, since I was already taking two weeks off after the wedding, I didn’t think I could do that.

    We’re taking the 3 days before the wedding off, but the wedding is also a few states away!

    Then we’re back towork for four days, and off for that Friday and the next two weeks!

    LOL I’m a total workaholic and I only took a half day off the day before (Friday). My boss was even coming by my desk asking why I was still there. I went right back to work the Monday after, although then I took off that Thursday and Friday for a minimoon.

    I’m getting married on a Saturday, and I’m having my bachelorette party the Thursday before so my out of town attendees don’t have to travel more than once. So I HAVE to take off Thursday and Friday.

    We planned long distance, so we took the week of the wedding off to travel, have last minute meetings with vendors, etc. It was busy, but enough time for us.

    Darling Husband and I both took the day before off to sleep in, pack my overnight bag, clean the house and set up the venue before rehearsal.
