Once my Fiancee gets approved for K-1 Visa from an Embassy, are we allowed to have a wedding in her home country before we both depart to USA. I know that K-1 is a fiancee visa and not a spouse, for a spouse visa you can. But what about K-1 visa?? Thank you for taking time to answer my question. Good luck to everyone on their visa journey.

You answered your own question. She has to be your fiancee on entering the US or you will have to start over with a spousal visa.

NOT a legal marriage, perhaps a religious one as long as the country does NOT recognize the religious marriage as Legally marrying.

A K-1 is for fiancees, if legally married BEFORE using the K-1, the the visa is invalid, and you will be committing visa fraud claiming to be unmarried to use the K1.

K-1 is for entry to the USA and THEN marrying.

From my understanding, as long as we have a wedding (white dress ....), but we do not register with the state as a husband and wife then its ok. We would like to have some sort of a ceremony for her family before we move to USA and have the real wedding and register as husband and wife. What do you guys think about this??

Is not a problem as long as the local government does not recognize it as a legal marriage.

We too had an "Engagement Party" much like a wedding reception, before leaving China using the K-1, this is NOT a problem.

Best err on the safe side and get married AFTER your fiancee arrives in the US. Many religious weddings are considered legal in respective country already, and thus change your fiancee to a spouse and cancel off the K1 visa. Celebration/ceremonies of a wedding on the other hand may just be that, like reception/tea ceremony, so its not legally binding in the country. But nikah (for a Muslim) or any other exchange of vows/oaths/etc are what considered legally binding usually.

Just my 2cents...
