Dear Sir,

RE:  Leave of Absence for Wedding

My sister will be married on November 2013. I am the eldest child and have many responsibilities to my family as the eldest. Originally the wedding was scheduled for  Christmas time, however, I told my family my work is very busy during the holidays and I cannot attend as my company needs me to be here to work. My parents changed the date of my sister's wedding to November so I could attend.

I will need four weeks time off to attend this wedding. The time I need to start my leave of absence on November 8 and end my leave of absence on December 15. This is very important to me, my parents and my sister.

It is my sincere hope that this leave request meets with your approval so I can finalize my travel plans.

Thank you,
