Klilos Chasanim - page 79 in the name of Mesechtas Kallah Rabsi 1:1, Shaalos U'Teshuvos Peer Hador 9, Igros HaRam 23, Tanya Rabsai 91, Beer Haitaiv 62:3, Knesses Hagedola 9:3, Sidur Bais Oved says that if one skipped a Bracha of the Sheva Brachos you just say the skipped Bracha at that point as the order is not Meakaiv.

Shevet HaLevi Volume 8 Siman 280 at the end says that even on Chol HaMoed succos when you have the Ushpizin you still need a Panim Chadoshos.

Especially if it's Shabbos or Yom Tov, some have the minhag to say it anyway (Shulchan Aruch Even Ha'ezer 62:8). The "Asher Barah" blessing may be said even if there are no Panim Chadashos (62:7).

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 ...

Wikipedia claims (with no source given) that No one reads a special haftarah for a bridegroom any longer, except the Karaites. This is a revised edition of something I myself added to that article in 2004. While I didn't cite any source (and, still, there's no citation for that claim in the Wikipedia article), I do remembering having researched the ...

I believe you're right that, in Biblical Hebrew, binyan cannot be construct with ade ad: For one thing, ade ad is not used as the complement of a construct noun in Tanach.For another, ade ad seems to be an adverb:It seems to be used as an adverb wherever it appears (Is. 65:18; Ps. 83:18, 92:8, 132:12,14).Moreover, ade is the same as (the preposition) ad ...

The minhag by Chassidim is if the Rebbe or a Rov is there, he says all the Brochos.

A few answers are given first the Pardes Yosef in Parshas Breisheis. He says that alot of the arguments couples have are about the Bride and groom thinking that they come from a better family, hence it leads to arguments so here we Bless them as in The Garden Of Eden you where both were created By G-d nothing to argue about!!! A second answer is offered by ...

The older practice was in fact to have one rabbi (often the officiating one) to recite them all. Just as a haftorah or the like has multiple blessings, recited by one person. In order to spread the honors, today people will often give one (or more) blessings per person. If that works for you, fine; if you want one person to do them all, that's fine too. ...

Rashi (TB Kesuvos 8A, s.v. M'sameah Hasan V'chalah, toward the end) says that the point of this blessing is wishing the couple success and happiness in worldly things such as parnassah (making a living) etc. the same way Hashem gave happiness to Adam in the Garden of Eden of old. If that is the case then according to Rashi, it is referring to how Hashem ...

Rabbi Mordechai Farkash (from Bellevue, Washington) suggests that this is dependant on the reason for the requirement of having a Panim Chadashos to be able to say Sheva Brochos. The Rambam (Hilchos Brochos 2:10) implies that when there is a new person present who has not yet heard the Sheva Brochos he becomes obligated to say them, which is why we can ...

Sh'miras Shabas K'hilchasah 59:17 reads as follows. The translation is my own and slightly free, and you should not rely on it; in any event, as always, CYLOR with any practical questions. S'uda sh'lishis that they set up for a bridegroom within the week of sheva b'rachos, which extends until sunset or thereafter: So long as tzes hakochavim has not ...

The Shulchan Aruch discusses this in Even HaEzer 62:2-3. In short, one can marry multiple women at one Chuppah ceremony and say one set of Sheva Brachot for all of them together. If one does this, he must have separate subsequent celebratory periods for each of the women individually (because of "ein mearvin"). If there are multiple weddings happening ...

I don't know where it is in the Maharal, though he is quoted as saying this by Tehila Abramov סוד הנשיות היהודית p64. I have also heard it quoted in the name of the Ramban.

The question wording is actually inaccurate, Halachically speaking - make Sheva Brachos during the week after the Chassanah. While common practise it to "make Sheva Brachos", Halachically, Sheva Brachos are said at meals after the wedding under specific conditions. See the Kitzur Shulchan Aruch Siman 149 for details. Essentially, in the case of 2 people ...

The Aruch HaShulchan writes in OH 559:9 that although from the letter of the law, when Tisha b'Av is pushed off from Shabbos, people involved in a bris can daven mincha and then break the fast during the day, that "we never heard of anyone doing such a thing" and that not only for Tisha b'Av, but on any fast that is pushed off, we don't make any meal during ...

I was at a wedding where Horav Laizer Platchinsky zt"l said all the Brachos.

Not an authoritative answer at all, but: I have known cases where a sheva b'rachos host would call around to various people to find a last-minute "panim chadashos". As always, CYLOR.

The only Biur Halacha to OC 549 strongly implies that the bride and groom do not need to complete the fast when it is pushed off, but they do when it is not pushed off. He implies that all 4 of the Churban-related fasts are the same in this regard. (Rav Ovadia Yosef makes a parallel diyuk to what I am making in Yehavveh Da'at 3:37). While the Magen Avraham ...

Rabbi Nebenzahl mentions this: על כל התהליך הזה אפשר למשול משל: שידוך בין איש לאישה. חודש אלול מסמל את תקופת השידוך הראשונה בה מכירים אחד את השני. ראש השנה הוא יום הקידושין בו הקב"ה מקדש את כנסת ישראל וכנסת ישראל מכריזה עליו למלך. יום כיפור הוא יום הנישואין, " 'יום חתונתו' זה מתן תורה" (תענית כו:) יום בו ניתנו למשה רבנו הלוחות האחרונות. השמחה הגדולה ...

This article by Rav Yona Ziskind says: Rav Shimshon Pincus writes that the sholosh regolim (the three festivals), Pesach, Shavuos and Succos, are the developmental stages of the Jewish nation. Pesach is the birth of the nation, Shavuos is the bar-mitzvah of the nation and Succos is the chasunah (marriage) of the nation. I have not yet located ...

Whether Asher Bara may be said at meals during the three days seems to be a dispute between the Tur and the Shulchan Aruch. The Beit Shemuel (EH 62 sk 14) rules to say it while the Aruch HaShulchan (62:42) rules not to. All agree that the special wedding Zimmun is to be used (Shulchan Aruch EH 62:13). A Minyan and Panim Chadashot are never required for ...

Young Israel of North Belmore's Practices and Procedures for Sheva Bruchos says the meal should be prepared specifically for the bride-groom, and as such would not be recited at a Brit. no sources in the doc though.
