Hi,

Does any one know that how much important it is to show engagement pictures at the time of interview.

My situation:

When I went to India in 2005 my fiance family arranged a small dinner @ his house only -so we actually didn't had a big or proper engagement ceremony & we didn't had any good pictures showing our engagements but we do have pcitures showing his family & my family together for that night.

But we did exchanged our rings but didn't took picture of that particular scene - because we never thought that we might will ever face this siuation in future where we have to show proof or give :unsure: this proof to any one that we both r engaged ---will n e one can tell me how will this effect my fiance interview or in getting a visa.

Please reply me as soon as anyoe can.

Thanks inadvance to everyone single member who will be replying me on this situation. BIG THANKS

We didn't have an engagement party. The officer interviewing my fiance asked if we had one or not and he said not really that we just celebrated with his sisters and Dad and that it wasn't formal at all. She seemed ok with it. I know that in some cases the person interviewing thought it was a marriage ceremony instead of an engagement ceremony which is not good if you have filed a K-1 (you don't want thtem to think you are married and petitioning your fiance). You will be fine don't worry, and good luck!

First, In the U.S. there is no requirement or tradition for a huge engagement party or ceremony. It does happen but most engagements are private events. It is more important for u to have oictures of you and ur finace plus pics of ur families together is good.

Second, the letter of intent to marry is proof enough. Good luck, Payato
