    First of all decide which one is most important work in these two things:

    1. Your company's project.

    2. Your friend's marriage party.

    I think your query is solved.

    Well if you like both important then try to take minimum leave.

    Also till the leave start complete all the important work under you so that if you take a short leave then your work will not not disturb others or there will not come any problem due to your short leave.

    It will be best option for you in such situations.

    Hello,

    You should not keep any expectation regarding getting leave for ''sometime'',as will be not possible to grant such an unreasonable demand while the project is on.You can get a day's leave,that is on the date of marriage.But I dont think leave for more than a day will be granted at this point of time.You should also undermine the work pressure,as you yourself know that the project is still on! Your friend's marriage has got its own importance,at the same time,company cannot bear any unnecesary troublesome at this point of time.

    Hi friend.............

    I think his is a very tough time for you as the important project is running on.
    Therefore you cannot ask for the leave all of a sudden.
    You should firstly impress your boss with all the hard work that you can put up for the time being, and once the boss is impressed,
    Then you should go to him and ask him for the leave in very humble and polite manner, and try going to him at a time when his mood is nice.
    This might give you the reason for getting a leave for your friendís marriage.

    Thanks!!!
    ALL THE BEST.............

    It depends on situation and also the scope of execution of project, if your in lead role in the project then its important that you always have your presence in the team that is dealing the important project. you can ask your boss about 1-2 days leave for your friends marriage not more than that.. first of you should know the deadline of completion of project and also the desired amount of work you need to do.. this way you can justify your leave if there a small amount of work to done initially in the project then you can request to do office work online from your official laptop thereby you can attend friends marriage and also do work online.. as your working in software company i hope you will have a database in your company so you can work from home as well from internet with your official laptop so whatever work you do is stored in the database you can store them later for project work.

    Hi aspirant

    If you are really keen on attending your friend's marriage then you should definitely take out sometime for it even if an important project is going on in your company. You should try to work harder and complete your work well in advance so that your boss won't have any problem in giving you a few days off. Show your boss what you are capable of and I am sure that he will have no problem in giving you a leave.

    Also you should talk to your boss. Tell him that you know that you are in the midst of a very important project but you wanted a few days leave to attend your friend's marriage. You assure him that you will work doubly hard from now itself and that when you come back from your leave you will definitely make up for any lapses. You assure him that the project won't suffer because of this.

    I am sure that your boss will have no problem in giving you a leave and you too should keep your promise. Good luck
