We had two babies come to our wedding and we made high chairs available, but both kids ended up just sitting on their parents’ laps.  As for the food, both sets of parents brought their own (one of the babies was still nursing), but you could always call your guests and make sure.

At 9 months, the parents will definitely provide food for their baby. I would provide a chair to put the infant seat on. That’s what I’ll be doing, at my mom’s suggestion.

I’d guess they’d bring their own food. At 9 months, my kiddo was eating table food mostly (he kind of skipped baby food), but I still would have brought things for him, both so I knew he’d eat it and so I could choose foods that wouldn’t make him really messy. We took our kiddo to weddings at 6, 7, and 8 months old (it was a busy summer) and he never had a high chair and that was fine with us. I’d check in with them about that, though.

Can you ask the mom?  My mom told me I was a very bad eater, and would nothing at that age, and would sit on her lap.

I would just ask the parents if they need antyhing, such as a high chair. And ask if they are bringing their own food. They probably will, or they will give the child bites of stuff off their plate.
