Dear Mr. Brown,

I am writing this letter to request you a few days leave to attend my brother’s wedding which is to be held on the 15th of August 2018 in Mumbai.

I need time off from work because I am the only active adult in my family and, that’s why, I have the responsibility of the necessary arrangements during the marriage function s. In addition, I am the person in charge of the event management and hospitality during the ceremonies.

I would require fourteen days leave, that is, from the 3rd of August to the 17th of August 2018. I require the said number of days because I need to arrive at the venue earlier to help with the wedding preparation. This is (you’ve used that is too frequently in the answer. It is unnecessary.) because Since we have very little manpower to help us in the pre and post marriage ceremonies, I have to complete a lot of arrangements ranging from the choice of sweets and menu for marriage to dresses and flowers in a short duration of time(Mention a few arrangements to make your response more specific. Cohesive device: ranging from X and Y to A and B.)

My colleague John will look after my the work during my absence. I have already completed my project of the next month.

This The function will not hamper the progress of my forthcoming projects. (It is not clear what does this refer to.)

I hope you would understand my situation and grant me leave for the aforementioned period.

Yours sincerely,

Jo vo.
