I was once at a wedding and it came time for Sheva Brochos.

A person was asked to say one of them, say "Sos tosis..." but inadvertently said "Samech t'samech..."

Since there is an order to the Sheva Brochos, what does one do? Can one go back and say the skipped brocha or must one just continue leaving only six to be said?
