You can. However, a USCIS officer might say that you were actually lying about what you were coming to the USA to do in the first place. This is especially if you do not plan to return home after the ceremony and file for adjustment of status here in the USA.

The B-1/B-2 visa is a non- immigrant visa that requires a lack of immigrant intent.
The K-1 requires an immigrant intent.
For these reasons, the request for the B-1/B-2 will have to be abandoned if you wish to pursue the K-1 fiancée visa.
Good luck to you.
