At a wedding – if one bentches with a minyan before the olam bentches – is one obligated to say the sheva brachos after the bentching?

Answer:

Yes, even when a person benches before the rest of the tzibbur, one has to recite the sheva berachos. This emerges from the dispute mentioned by the Shulchan Aruch (Even Ha’ezer end of 62) concerning the status of a shamash (waiters) who eat after the chasan and the kallah have already departed (see also Taz 62:9).

According to all opinions, somebody who eats together with the chasan and kallah, and celebrates with them, must recite the blessings at the end of his birkas hamazon.
