If someone had a baby boy and the bris was pushed off until what came out to be the day of the Pidyon HaBen. Can the 2 seudas, one for the Bris and the other for the Pidyon HaBen be made together as one seudas mitzvah? Or is this a problem of being "marvin simcha b'simcha (mixing together 2 separate simchas.) Are there any sources on this?

(Related: Question of which to make first, the bris or the pidyon?)

One can make both together but dont have a source. – user2709 May 7 '13 at 21:55
@shulem, so where are you getting that from? Have you seen someone do it? – Daniel May 8 '13 at 13:33
I've heard that these 2 seudas are not considered enough of a "simcha" to be a problem of "ain marvin..." A wedding is considered a simcha or a seudas yom tov (this is the classifc example of ain marvin...) – Yehoshua May 8 '13 at 13:46
