getting married in foreign country?

I had a question regarding getting married in a foreign country....I want to marry my fiancee in her native country but I know that it will take much longer to go there (we planned for it in april) then wait for a k-3 application to be approved after the event. Wouldn't it be easier to just send out our k-1 package now and then just get married in april quietly while awaiting the approval for that one and then let her come on that visa? Or am I wrong? Maybe there is something or some downside that I am not seeing here....Please any thoughts about this.

Hi, if you read the faq's and guidelines at the top of the page, you will get a lot of information to help with the choices you have. I may be misinterpreting, but if you intend to apply for a k1 then your "fiancee" needs to be single on entry to the USA. If you have married by then the K1 visa will no longer be applicable. The dates will become important when your SO applies for AOS, so it is important to read all the information before you make any decisions.

Hope it helps
