Now that we're in a new year everyone in my office has a fresh allotment of vacation/ PTO for 2015. I requested to take off the Friday before my wedding and the following week for our honeymoon (6 days). There's a policy that you can't take 5 consecutive days off without your Director and VP approval. I just got my email saying APPROVED. Soooo... how much time are you taking off for your wedding?

    10 days over 3 weeks. A few days before, a week honeymoon, and a few days after to get things in order and do the legal crap.

    ETA: I have off weekends, so it's technically 14 consecutive days but I am taking 10 working days off. I haven't told my boss that I'm getting married so I hoping to sneak in the approval with my summer vacation.

    I took off 4 days before the wedding and the Monday after. But the govt shut down so I ended up with 17 days off and kept all my PTO, so BONUS.

    I took 6 days for my honeymoon, but we took that 3 months later.

    Since the Wednesday before my wedding is a holiday here, I am taking Thursday and Friday before my Saturday wedding and also Monday after. So I will be off for a total of 6 days.

    We aren't doing a HM right away so we will take a week for that probably in September.

    I took off a total of 10 business days for our DW/Honeymoon. It was 3 days before we left to the destination and 1 business day after we got back from our trip.

    Depends...we still haven't booked our honeymoon. Hopefully this month though. FH wants to leave the day after the wedding. If that happens then I will take off Thursday & Friday before the wedding and definitely at least one day when we get back to do the name change stuff that has to be done in a government office

    This year I have 5 weeks of vacation at work so i'm thinking to take 2 weeks - 3 days prior and the rest for the HM and after. Want to spend some time with the kids after the HM and before school starts.

    I am taking off a week before the wedding (mainly because I am having my wedding 5 hours away from where I live right now) and I need time to finish getting all the details together. Then I'm taking a week off for the honeymoon

    We're getting married on a Saturday so I took Wed/Thus/Fri off before the wedding and then the week after for the Honeymoon. I figure I'll have a few last minute things to do before the wedding so I'm thinking the 3 days should be plenty of time.

    I took three days off before the wedding and 6 days off after for my honeymoon. My company is totally awesome and gives you five free days of vacation for getting married so I was able to use that without having to take away from my regular vacation.

    Haven't quite decided, I'll take at least 2, maybe 3 days off before the wedding and then the week after for the honeymoon.

    I'm taking 7 work days off. I was just going to take six, but that has me coming back for one day of work, and then having the weekend off, so i'm taking seven and making it a nice long vacation.
