Tiling over time

I know you're supposed to wait 24 hours before grouting tile. But is there a maximum time before grouting.

So I can spend the week putting in the full pieces of tile at my leisure and then finish with the cut pieces next weekend when I have the whole weekend to rent and work with a wet saw.

Makes sense to me that I could. Just want my thought reenforced.

no problem other than dirt and debri getting in there but a good vac will take care of that. I have waited 2 weeks befre grouting with no problems.
