I am an American Citizen, and have applied for the K-1 Fiancee Visa for my Fiance who is an Indian citizen. Her parents are insisting that we have a wedding ceremony in India prior to bringing her to the USA (on a K-1) to get married in the USA.
Is there any way for us to have a "marriage" in India that is just shy of being considered an official wedding, so that we can still satisfy her parents' desire of having a wedding ceremony, but won't violate the K-1 rules?
Any thoughts or suggestions would be appreciated! Thanks!
