Since there are different minhagim about when to keep the Aveilus of Sefira you may be invited to wedding during days that you keeps aveilus. Can you go? There are various opinions. The Chasam Sofer says you cannot go. The Minchas Yizchak says you can go to the Chupah since there is no singing and dancing. Rav Moshe Feinstein says since it is permissible for the Chosson and Kallah to get married on this day, it is a mitzva for all the invitees to come and rejoice with them regardless of their own minhag. (Piskei Tshuva OC 493:13)
