    My wedding is Sunday so i wasn't planning on taking off before the wedding. However, since half of the guestlist is coming from out of the country, i may need to take off that whole week. Hopefully i will be working in the UK already and have gazillion vacation days.

    I am taking three days prior, starting on Wednesday. I am certain I will need this time to take care of last minute items.

    I'm taking the entire week off. I'm a city government employee and we've gone to 4 ten-hour days. My regular day off is Monday. Didnt make much sense to me to go in Tuesday to take off Wed, Thur, Fri to tie up all loose ends, therefore, I have the wk off. Plus I live and work in Houston, TX but getting married in my hometown (Beaumont). The pace there is much slower than here so I'll need the week to work with those vendors, lol.

    We are leaving on a Tuesday for St.Lucia, so I will take off that Monday and 3 days after we return. So all in all I will be taking 10 days of vacation at once! I can't wait!!!

    I took off the Friday before up to the Following Wednesday. WE had a mini moon and re-scheduled our HM for the following year since I got pg before the wedding took place.

    Originally I was going to take two days off before and the Monday after. But, now I'm only taking off one day before and saving the extra days for the HM 1 week later.

    It depends on when my baby is born. If I take my full 12 week time off, then it will run into my wedding and honeymoon so I don't know. Before I got pregnant, I was taking Wed-Fri off.

    I'm a school teacher, so I don't think I'll be doing summer school next year. So I don't have to worry about taking any days off since the wedding is July 17, 2010

    I love relaxing almost more than anything in the world so probably a week b/c I also work really long hours and the first couple of days of the week, I'll probably still be getting Blackberry messages. LOL.  Trying to take a 3 week honeymoon so, ideally, I'd go back to work in a month.  We'll see how that works as the date gets closer.

    My wedding was on a friday and my last day at work was Tuesday....so I only took off two days! Which was enough time cause I tried to get most things handled 1-2 weeks before the wedding!!!

    My wedding is on a Sunday and I hadn't planned on taking off any days at all. I do have a lot of famiy coming from out of town but they understand I have to work. But my boss has given me the option to take that Thursday and Friday if I want to. I may take him up on the offer. Not sure yet.
