Sheva Brachot: The Seven Jewish Wedding Blessings
 by Rivka C. Berman

Sheva Brachot
(Hebrew: שבע ברכות ) "the seven blessings," are also referred to as the brachot Nesuin (Hebrew: ברכות נישואים ), "the wedding blessings." These blessings are recited by the Rabbi or honored guests under the Chupah (canopy) for the bride and the groom during the Jewish Wedding ceremony.  These same "seven blessing" are also recited as part of the festive meals that continue for a week after the wedding.

Orthodox and Conservative Jews recite the "Sheva Brachot"  only with a minyan, (a quorum of ten), and at least one new invitee is present, one who was not among the guests for any previous Sheva Brachot festivities. The "new face" is only necessary during weekdays, as on Shabbat, the Shabbat itself is considered a new guest . New guests are referred to as Panim Hadashot - new faces.
* Consult with your rabbi as to the pronunciation of God's name, HaShem.
The "Sheva Brachot" - The Seven Blessings (Sephardic Pronunciation):

1. Baruch Ata HaShem Elohainu Melech HaOlam, SheHakol Barah Lichvodo

You are blessed, Lord our G-d, the sovereign of the world, who created everything for his glory.

You are blessed, Lord our G-d, the sovereign of the world, the creator of man.

You are blessed, Lord our G-d, the sovereign of the world, who created man in His image, in the pattern of His own likeness, and provided for the perpetuation of his kind. You are blessed, Lord, the creator of man.

4. Sos Tasis VeTagel HaAkarah, BeKibbutz Bane'ha Letocha BeSimchaa. Baruch Ata HaShem, Mesame'ach Tzion BeVaneha

Let the barren city be jubilantly happy and joyful at her joyous reunion with her children. You are blessed, Lord, who makes Zion rejoice with her children.

5. Sameach TeSamach Re'im Ahuvim, KeSamechacha Yetzircha BeGan Eden MiKedem. Baruch Ata HaShem, MeSame'ach Chatan VeKalah

Let the loving couple be very happy, just as You made Your creation happy in the garden of Eden, so long ago. You are blessed, Lord, who makes the bridegroom and the bride happy.

You are blessed, Lord our G-d, the sovereign of the world, who created joy and celebration, bridegroom and bride, rejoicing, jubilation, pleasure and delight, love and brotherhood, peace and friendship. May there soon be heard, Lord our G-d, in the cities of Judea and in the streets of Jerusalem, the sound of joy and the sound of celebration, the voice of a bridegroom and the voice of a bride, the happy shouting of bridegrooms from their weddings and of young men from their feasts of song. You are blessed, Lord, who makes the bridegroom and the bride rejoice together.
