Rivivos Efraim Volume 2 page 266 in discussing whether one may eat roasted meat on the evening after Pesach Sheni concludes as follows.

ופוק חזי מאי עמא דבר, שעושים חתונות מפוארות באותו לילה ואוכלים צלי ולא מיחה אדם לעולם כמדומני

"And go and see what people do, they make beautiful weddings on that night and eat roasted meat and no one ever stopped them to the best of my knowledge" (my translation)

Is there a source that allows weddings on the evening after Pesach Sheni?

@DoubleAA: No. I am pretty certain it is an error or that Chasunos means parties. However if there is a source that says it is permitted then I would accept it at face value. – Gershon Gold May 14 '14 at 16:10
@DoubleAA, have you ever seen or heard of a Chassuna on that night? – Yishai May 14 '14 at 16:11
In this issue of Halachically Speaking, thehalacha.com/wp-content/uploads/Vol5Issue9.pdf , the author refers to Yabia Omer O.C. 5:38 regarding a first marriage between Pesach and Shavuot. I don't have a Yabia Omer, but maybe someone who does could take a look? – Yehuda May 14 '14 at 16:44
