I've got a wedding coming up -- I'd rather plan it for May 2010 (between finals and an internship), but August 14, 2010 works out best for the venue.

When do internships typically end?

Is anyone else planning something similar?

If you're a male -- completely unfeasible. You'll need to be single for at least one more year at b school.

If you're female -- by all means -- get married as soon as possible!

Disclaimer -- I just got engaged, am male, and am shooting for a June 2015 wedding.

Depends on the school and their time-line. I know if you had a 10 week internship at Kellogg it would end after that and if a company requires 12 weeks you would really be screwed. I do know people getting married but all are putting off honeymoons. I would look at the schools calander and figure it out. I know at least one person who changed from a summer wedding to getting married over winter break next year because they have a 12 week internship and couldnt make it work.

Thanks everyone, I should have included school-specific info.

Olin starts back up (with mandatory re-orientation) on August 23 2010. I can't imagine an internship going up to Friday 8/20/10, but there's a chance I could be looking at one ending 8/13/10 (which would be the day of the rehearsal dinner).

Is there a typical span of time that internships end before class starts?

Most companies have 10 to 12 week internships...some are flexible. Mine wants a minimum of 10 but has no max. Depending when your school ends in the spring some companies have set start dates. So you may not start for a few weeks after your finals. How long is your summer break going to be...I think Kelloggs is 13 weeks. So 10 weeks would give you plenty of time...though a honeymoon in a week might be tough.

Also, I would not recommend working the day before your wedding...at least take a few days off. Its amazing the last minute things that come up and most likely you wont be working in the city/town you are getting married in. You definitely need to be on hand for wedding stuff.

Depending on the company, 9-12 weeks may work. At Haas, we have an International Business Development Program that eats up 3-4 weeks of our time, so 1/3 of the class (probably up to more than 1/2 next year as we expand the program) will NOT be able to work more than 10 weeks (some only 9 weeks, in my case). So far NO company that recruits at Haas has complained about a 10 week internship, so take that however you like. :)

With that said, I would probably do the wedding 1-2 weeks before school starts, giving you at least 10 week internship.
