A wedding for a mourner


Where a prospective bride or groom loses an immediate relative, and the wedding would have been during the week of shivah, and delaying the wedding would mean losing the deposit made for the wedding hall, then they should:

1. Do the chuppah before the burial;

2. Have the burial while observing the seven days of sheva berachot;

3. Make one of the sheva berachot meals in the hall at the originally scheduled time of the wedding; and

4. observe shivah after the week of sheva berachot.

(Rav Moshe Feinstein, Igrot Moshe Yoreh Deah 1:227)

Have a good day,
