A: 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.

A: What you can do, and should do, are two different issues. However, the potential consequences should be discussed at an appointment or teleconference with a competent and experienced immigration attorney, like myself, who practices family based immigration and handles adjustment interviews at the Midwest USCIS Field Offices.
