Wedding party

Hey ladies and gentlemen.

My NOA2 recently has been approved. While I just called the US embassy in Macedonia, they said today they just mailed some info to my fiancee. While, we are engaged, we already planned a while back for a wedding in 2 weeks. It will be a traditional wedding back in Europe, with music, guests and so on, but we will get married in court or in papers when she comes to the states.

So, should my fiancee take the pictures of the wedding to her interview (in September) and tell the embassy that we had a wedding party (or should i say ceremony)?

Thanks to visajourney.com I got all the info needed.

I just collected from NOA1 to NOA2, the tickets (no stubs, but from emails from the travel agency, forgot to save the stub tickets), phone bills, picture, paycheck stubs, letter confirmation from my jobs, affidavit of support, and bank statement.

Since I will be traveling there in 2 weeks, do those paycheck stubs and bank statement as of in 2 weeks be enough for her interview in Septmebter, or should I still send more paycheck stubs while I am back in the States until a week before her interview?

Thanks for understanding and your time and help.

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

Do not introduce evidence that could confuse the situation and make someone think you might actually be married

Don't Do That!!!! The K1 (fiancee) visa is for unmarried people ONLY! Tell her to leave the pictures at home. There is a very good chance she could be DENIED based on those pictures!! My fiancee wanted to do the same thing, have a ceremony in Bulgaria and a court wedding here. But the sad truth is that they can deny you just for having the ceremony. It's a risky situation. :(

wow, and i thought she would get the visa quicker if we told them about the wedding ceremony and pictures

Thanks a lot for letting me know, I really appreciate it.

So, I guess only tickets, and take regular pictures again.

Thanks Shad & Dani, Payxibka, I wish you luck in your lives :D

Do not have an officiant that has the power to marry.

When at the interview, the beneficiary cannot refer to the USC as their spouse. This has caused some VJ'ers denials. It's an easy slip when the wedding party takes place prior to visa issuance.

Have a party, have a great time, but don't do anything that could be construed as legally married.
