Leave Application for Cousin’s Marriage

A leave application for a cousin’s marriage is a formal request for leave to attend a cousin’s marriage ceremony. It’s great news that your cousin is getting married, but you will need to request time off to attend the marriage ceremony and the festivities that surround it.

This article can help you do that with discussions of how to ask for leave and what to include in your leave application letter. We also provide a format you can use to write your leave application and a sample letter to read.

Asking for Leave

You might want to talk with your supervisor before you write your formal leave application letter. You can inform them you wish to take a leave of absence and offer the dates you want to be away. After you have obtained your supervisor’s preliminary approval, it’s time to write your formal leave application.

You will need to write a letter to both your supervisor and your child’s school principal if you have a child in school who will be attending with you.

What to Include in Your Leave Application Letter

Your boss and your child’s school principal need information about your leave to process and approve your request. Below are the items you should include in your leave request letter.

  • The reason for the request – your cousin’s marriage
  • The last day you will work before your leave begins
  • The number of days or weeks requested
  • The date you will return
  • For your boss – a suggestion for ways to handle your work while you are away
  • For your child’s principal – a request for your child’s schoolwork and their teacher’s name
  • Your contact information
  • A statement of appreciation

Note:

Your boss will likely want to know if you will work overtime when you return to complete anything you miss while you are away. Let your boss know if you will be available for questions by phone or email while you are gone. Think about other ways you can make it easier for your boss and team to manage without you while you on leave.

You can use the format provided below for either your boss or your child’s principal. Add or remove the phrases provided to write your leave application letter.
