The itinerary will depend on your interests, mode of transportation (self-drive or train between cities) and arrival time in Vienna. Last year I had 4 days/3 nights in Austria. For 7-8 days, I would include the following:

Firstly, congratulations on your wedding, and may it be the source of joy that a good marriage brings.
You can take a multi stage cable car up from the village of HintertuxHintertux to the top of the glacier. From the top, you can visit the spectacular Hintertux Ice Palace, which is an ice cave at the head of the glacier, which has some lovely illuminations and weirdly creepy deformed icicles. The feeling of being inside a glacier is awe inspiring, and the views from the cable car station over the surrounding mountains is spectacular.
To get best value out of your cable car ticket, if you stop off at the second level of the ski lift (Tuxer Fernerhaus), you can also visit the Alpengasthof Spannagelhaus, which are the highest caves in Europe.
