Halacha - Sefira, Shaving
Submitted by Benjamin Rose  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh

Let me clarify that I did not write the article nor do I take any responsibility for it.

According to R' Moshe Feinstein zatzal one who attends a chasuna even during his part of sefira may cut his hair and shave if the need is so great that he would otherwise not attend since the mitzva of simchas chasan v'kallah is great enough to allow one to be lenient regarding the halachos of sefira. Rosh Chodesh is even less of a problem, as not shaving on Rosh Chodesh is not a definative halacha but a pert of the tzavah of R' Yehudah HaChasid.

Others who may get a haircut include the mohel sandak and father at a bris and a chasan.
