Sheva brachos for second marriage

If a choson and kallah have both been previously married, there is only one day of sheva brachos.  If there are additional meals in their honor after the first day, the zimun starts with "she'ha'simcha b'm'ono" but we do NOT make any additional brachos, not even Asher Bara.  See Aruch Hashulchan 62:20-22 who is very clear on the subject and says that the practice to say asher bara for three days is based on a misprint in the Tur and is incorrect.    See additional sorces in both directions in Hanesuin kehilchasan 2nd ed II p. 648.
