Rogue trader Michael Stockman took £800 from six customers before their ceremonies or parties.
The 30-year-old failed to show up for the celebrations, often texting his unwitting victims at short notice.
His excuse for cancelling on four different occasions between the start of August 2012 and end of September that year was that his father had died the previous day or morning, the Trading Standards Service said.
The businessman, based at Knockantern Green in Coleraine in Co Londonderry, traded as North West Discos and was found guilty of nine theft offences earlier this year.
He was set to be sentenced on Thursday, however his sentencing was put back until September at the request of prosecutors.
His lawyer Francis Rafferty said: "I have been advised by the prosecution that in fact there are summonses to be served in relation to identical matters.
"They are making an application to take this matter to September 5 in order that the matters can be sentenced together."
At Coleraine Magistrates' Court, district judge Paul Copeland agreed to the delay.
Stockman, slightly built and wearing a tracksuit, did not speak during the brief hearing.
