Buying extra holiday to say ‘I do’
With a date (finally) in place for our wedding, I decided to buy five days extra holiday through Choices.
This meant that I was able to relax in the knowledge that I had enough days away from work to do all the exciting wedding things that I needed to do this year like dress fittings, my hen weekend (and recovery!) plus a spa day and any last minute preparations in the days before the wedding – not to mention the wedding itself and honeymoon still to come!
There’s no doubt about it, weddings are expensive, so it was great that I could spread the cost of buying 5 extra days holiday across the course of the year.
Without this benefit, I don’t think my wedding planning would have gone as smoothly, as I wouldn’t have had the time to fit everything in. It’s been such a busy year, but I am now really looking forward to having a good chunk of time out the office to get married and enjoy our Caribbean cruise!
