I am about to travel to the Philippines to marry my fiance. Does anyone know about or experienced direct consular filing there? I will not live there with my future wife, but see that this may get her to the USA in as little as three months if it is available as an option while there. If this is a good option, what will the embassy there require of my as documentation that I should bring with me on my trip?

You need to establish legal residency in the Philippines before you can do a DCF. It takes at least 6 months to do this. You need to show you have a bonafide marriage, which normally means living with your wife. You cannot reasonably expect any of your visa options to be completed in as little as 3 months if you do not all ready live there as a permenant resident.
