    Wow, I can’t imagine how crazy that must be working right up until the wedding!

    I am relocating after the wedding, thus leaving my job.  So it was easy enough to take off a week before the wedding and just get my vacation time paid out.  It’s nice to have unlimited time off, but not nice to have my salary stopped for about a month between the wedding, honeymoon, and moving from Chicago to CA! (and then I don’t even know if I’ll find a job!)

    Wow!  That’s crazy!  I bet you are getting a LOT done at work : )

    I’m taking the week before (though Monday of that week is a holiday, so technically only 4 days…) and the week after off (with an extra Monday off) to make it a full two weeks.  I get 4 weeks pd vacation so had to take advantage.  If I had less time off, I probably would only take a few days before the wedding.  

    Have an amazing time on Sunday!!

    I am taking off one day before the wedding. I am a teacher, so I can’t take much time off during the school year. I know it will be stressful, but the week before my wedding is CST testing, so I will have a lot of time to fold programs and create seating charts while my kids are testing!

    I’m taking the Thursday and Friday off before the wedding so I can ferry out-of-town guests back from the airport.

    Good luck this weekend and congratulations!

    Have a great time at your wedding! Remember to take it all in, and we better hear/see some recaps 🙂

     I only get 10 days vacation time per year & no sick/personal time (crappy!!) so I will be working up until 3 days before my wedding. We also wont be having much of a honeymoon because of that too. I will then be driving 6 hours to my wedding location and spending the few days leading up to my wedding setting everything up! It’s going to be a whirlwind I know it!

    I am taking one day off before the wedding, and the week after the wedding off for the honeymoon. I am going to just be a warm body the whole week leading up to the wedding, though, which I feel guilty about but am accepting!

    I am working until the Tuesday or so before the wedding. My mom and Maid/Matron of Honor are coming in Monday. My fiance is working up until the Wednesday before the wedding and his mom is taking off the Thursday afternoon and all day Friday. We’ve fortunate about being able to get time off. I will actually have a few weeks off afterwards as I work with schools and am getting married right around the start of winter break!

    I’m moving four hours away, so I’m just putting in for my last day to be a week before the wedding, and I’ll start my new job right after the new year if all goes to plan.

    I only took Friday off of work before the wedding on Sunday.  I’m glad I did it because we had to go to the courthouse to get our wedding certificates done before the day of the wedding.  Talk about a lot to do at the last minute!
