I have never gone three weeks with a weizen, but yes you've got the idea! Leave it in the fermenter until the fermentation has finished and then add at least three days.
Even though a weizen won't be clear, you still want to let most of the crud drop out and in that sense the beer will be clearing. It will have a wheat haze and some suspended yeast, but still shouldn't have obvious particles floating it it. That's when it can be bottled- usually about day 14 for me.
