Hey there,


I was wondering if some of you have an idea of how you were planning on spending your days before the wedding day. Did you take days off, spending time eith family, ect.
Our wedding day is on a Friday, I was thinking of taking maybe 2-3 days off before the wedding day. I know some people have specific timelines of what they plan on doing.
Would like to go to the spa with the FH.
Spend some time with my family from the USA. Honestly don't know how and where my mental state will be 3 days before the wedding haha

    I don't know what my mental state will be either lol I'm taking four days off before the wedding to finish up some last minute projects and then pack everything up to take to the wedding. We are from Edmonton area and getting married in Banff so I'm a little stressed out about getting everything down there. I'm also leaving a day to get my nails done and hang out with the girls and my fiance!

    We are both working up until the wedding date. Our wedding is on a Saturday and I get off work the Friday morning before (being a shift worker). My fiancee gets off in the afternoon so I would imagine it will be almost straight to rehearsal after that, with our wedding party & parents.

    I am taking off the Wed-Fri before my Saturday wedding and then also taking the following Monday and Tuesday off to return any anything rented and to simply decompress and enjoy a couple days to soak it all in!

    With you 100%. My situation is quite similar to you! Though, they give 1 week paid off for weddings. That helps!

    Enjoy every moment you have!!!!

    Spa days are the best! Totally agree.

    I wish you nice moments with your family and friends from the USA. I also hope to be able to spend some quality time with my folks from the States.

    For packing, you could maybe try doing it 2 to 4 weeks before hahaha. I'm crazy when I pack. At least for the main things, then you can finish up your packing. You'll have time for sure!

    Good luck!

    I鈥檝e schedule my nails and spa appt earlier on in the week for my Saturday wedding. My MOH and husband will be here from the US on the Wednesday- so I鈥檒l be trying to spend a bit of time with them- dinner, drinks etc. Last minute venue stuff on Thursday鈥 I鈥檝e tried not to schedule any clients that week for work so I can be a bit more flexible- and I made myself unavailable for 2 weeks prior at the hospital so I can stay well rested鈥 just basically hoping to tie up any last minute things, chill out and maybe pack for the honeymoon if there鈥檚 time!

    I'm taking off two days before the wedding for whatever last minute stuff needs to be done, get my Mani Pedi done, and have our rehearsal and dinner. I'm taking off a week and a half after to visit with family and friends from out of town and take my FH's kids for a short vacation, probably to the cottage, to unwind before going back to work. We're taking our honeymoon in September.

    A lot depends on your number of vacation days. I didn't have much left by August, so I only took 1.5 days off before the wedding. However, we took a two week honeymoon after the wedding.

    We took time off starting the Tuesday before our Friday wedding - My immediate family arrives from out of town on the Wednesday so it gives me time for all of my appointments and some time to enjoy having them here. I started a new job last year so I don鈥檛 have as many vacation days as I used to so it鈥檚 something I went back and forth on and we have since decided to take the entire following week off for a honeymoon, which we weren鈥檛 going to do but desperately need it. Our wedding is April 29th and it鈥檚 hard to think I鈥檒l have used nearly half my time off by then but I think it鈥檚 so important to have that time before and after - Wedding planning is A LOT, especially during a pandemic so I think we all deserve that time to rest and enjoy a bit.. and I definitely NEED it.

    I鈥檓 a stay at home mom so technically I don鈥檛 have to take time off haha but still mom duties 馃槈



    My venue is 10 hours away so I鈥檓 going down with my toddler and staying with my maid of honour to get stuff done two weeks before the wedding while my fianc茅 works and then he is taking off the week of the wedding!
    I don鈥檛 imagine it will be very relaxing for me lol trying to remember everything I need to bring for myself, my family and the wedding but if I forget anything my fianc茅 can bring it.

    Definitely goto the spa that sounds nice lol I鈥檓 definitely looking forward to dropping my son off and getting my nails done and the pamper kinda appointments! Lol

    I have booked myself off from mid May to mid June. Our wedding is on May 28. I have family coming from out of province so I want to spend time with them. My MOH is arriving on the 25th so we will have a pamper day before the big day! We are taking two weeks off for a honeymoon right after the wedding.
