Here is my suggestion:

Because I have to attend my friend's wedding next Friday, I can't go home on leave as planned (for the same date) until early next month.
Hii,

A small cultural note. In my experience, the term 'leave' is not used in that way in Britain or N. America. (ie go home 'on leave'.) Here, we only speak of 'leave' in a few special cases (eg maternity leave, sick leave., leave if you are a soldier in the army) but more commonly, we use expressions like 'I'm taking my vacation next week', 'I have a day off work tomorrow'.

However, the term seems to be commonly used in various Asian countries.

Hi Clive,

That is good to know. I was taught that if we don't want to be specific about the reason for our 'leave' then use 'on leave'. The truth is that I have never had to rely on such a usage.
Hi,

If I didn't want to be specific about the reason, I'd just say 'I'm going to have some time off next month'.

A few days ago, you posted a thread where you mentioned an example of someone 'cooking for his master'. I'd like to comment a little on that, but I can't seem to find the thread. Do you remember which one it was?

Hi,

You can certainly say that, but it does not fully relect what the original poster intended for it to be.

Two things that were part of the original sentence:

1. The use of 'to be going' carries a 'planning' meaning.
2. The reason for the change of the plan is 'attending a wedding'.

Your sentence does not convey the two meanings. The phrase "because of my friend's wedding" could be interpreted as you have to work overtime to cover for your friend while s/he has the wedding. It is not as clear as the original post.

Hope that makes sense,
