Depends on where you're getting married. If you're getting married in Indian, CR-1 is the best option. If you want to marry here, then K-3/Finace Visa would be best.

I think I'm right. But I could be wrong.

Seriously, if the actuall marraige it happening in India, you can't apply for fiance visa anymore. Because she's your spouse now. Not fiance. So you apply for CR-1 Visa. Atleast that's how mine is going.

Going for CR-1 is the only way after getting married. You can not apply for K-1/Fiance/e visa after marriage.

AND If you want to have her with you earlier, then apply for K-1 now and you will have her probably by Oct,2010(hopefully) and after marriage you might be able to apply in Sep,2010 and still it might take 5 months(in Feb,2010)

Choice is your!

I hope its helpful for you

She can apply for B1/B2(visitor visa) while your CR-1 or K-1 is in Process. Approval depends on interview.
