Must there be a sheva brachot every day of the week after the wedding?

These sheva Brachot gatherings are not mandatory—and it certainly isn’t required to have one every day of the week. Nowadays, however, it has become standard convention to have one every day. Traditionally, family and close friends divide the honors, often with several friends and/or family members collaborating on each of the sheva brachot.
