I'm just about to go back to teaching after maternity leave, I will be part time but my mils wedding is on a Saturday and quite a distance away. Neither myself or dp drive. Would I be entitled to day off? Mil insists I am, I don't really want to take day off as what hapoen ds if/when my DB or ds get married? What about funerals? If I use the day for a wedding would I have to miss a funeral?
Cannot understand why you posted this if you are planning to travel on Friday evening. Just do as you planned and do not worry about whether you can have time off for the wedding. For what it is worth my experience is that schools give time off for funerals but only very understanding heads give time off for weddings and usually it would be unpaid.
