Letters Regarding Marriage
Letter to Parents Requesting for Consent
My Dear XYZ,
Please give me the honor of addressing this letter to you.
I consider it the duty of parents to take full care of their children and guide them on the right path in their life. With these feelings in my mind, I respectfully seek the permission of your good self to pay my addresses to your daughter, Miss……………..
Where family status, moral character and personal career is concerned, I presume that you are well acquainted about these things of mine and yet I am prepared to stand any test on that score.
I can assure you that I am earning sufficient to meet the modern social life and your daughter will be quite comfortable with me. I have not yet talked to my parents but I am sure they will not have any hesitation in accepting my happiness.
I am Sir,
Very respectfully yours,

Your courteous letter is in my hands. I take pleasure in your sense of obligation towards parents of a girl and I congratulate you for that. I have since consulted my daughter and wife and I have pleasure in giving you unqualified approval and respect.
I would like you to join at the evening tea next Friday after which myself and my wife will meet your parents for formal approval and regular customs of society.
Very truly yours,
Letter to Girl’s parents for Early Marriage
You will be glad to know that my office people have selected me for training abroad for a period of about two years. The application for my visa has been sent today and I shall be leaving sometime next month. Would you feel it proper if the marriage can be celebrated before my departure so that I could take my wife with me during my tour abroad?
Your loving son,

Dear [name here],
I have just received your letter and I am glad to read its contents. I have since consulted girl’s mother and have pleasure in informing you that the marriage ceremony can be performed on the 30th of this month. Though the time at our disposal is rather too short, I feel confident that the marriage will be performed with great pomp and show.
I wish both of you a happy and prosperous life and I am always by your side to help you in any way.
Your loving father,
