My fiance' and I would like to have a wedding in India that all our family could attend and then come to the US and become legally married. My fiance' has a K1 visa. Would it be illegal for us to marry in India prior to coming to the US?
Any help is much appreciated!

I assume you are US citizen.
If you get married to your fiance outside US, he is no longer fiance, but spouse. And would have to go through either K3 visa or immigrant visa process.
Read http://www.immihelp.com/visas/kvisa for the process.
Also, read http://www.immihelp.com/greencard/familybasedimmigration/index.html for family based green card.
If you have already been in staying in India for at least 2 months at the time of marriage, look at 'Direct Consular Filing' at the bottom of the page at http://www.immihelp.com/greencard/familybasedimmigration/application-procedures.html
