What does one do if his or her Sheva Brachos comes out on Seder Night do the Kosos become Sheva Brachos and what are all the other Halachic Implications?

AS a Bonus there is a famous Drush about how the Seder is a Sheva Brachos if you count up all the Brachos you make but this is a strictly Hallachic question – SimchasTorah Apr 14 '11 at 19:51
First you need a Minyan and a Ponim Chadashos. – Gershon Gold Apr 14 '11 at 20:04
Rabbi Frand Tape # 797 – Sheva Brachos at the Seder – Gershon Gold Apr 14 '11 at 20:52
@Gershon Gold - Shabas and yom tov should suffice. See Even Ha'ezer 62:8. – WAF Apr 15 '11 at 2:17
for Panim Chadashos, not for the Minyan. – Gershon Gold Apr 15 '11 at 2:51

According to the hagada by the author of K'sav Sofer (which seems to be called Seder Lel Hiskadesh Chag?) the kos shel b'racha of birkas hamazon should be used for sheva b'rachos as well because the birkas hamazon catalyzes the sheva b'rachos anyway and is therefore not serving a double purpose (which could be problematic).

In addition he brings down a hakpada of Rav Ya'akov Emden that the particular cup used for sheva b'rachos should be that of the groom in case each person at the table has his own.
