Engagement Leave Letter

Getting engaged is a big event in any culture. The engagement it self might be a private affair, but it still warrants the presence of your close friends and family and a small celebration.

    Sample of an Engagement Leave Letter #1

    William Allen
    Head of Marketing
    ABC Advertising company
    123 Commercial Lane
    London, UK


    Brian White
    Marketing executive

    Date: July 5, 2011

    Dear Mr. Allen,

    As I told you earlier, me and my partner have decided to get engaged and I will be throwing an engagement party to celebrate with my family and friends on July 21. Hence, I will require 2 days off on July 19 and July 20 to prepare and organize the event.

    I have a couple of leaves remaining in my yearly balance, and would like to utilize them for this engagement leave. I will be gone only 2 days and do not have any urgent tasks in the office that need immediate attention. However, if there are any questions, I can be reached on my cell phone.

    Thank you in advance for your understanding.
