Hello,

Reading and following the forums' advice has helped my fiancee passed the interview.

Apparently it was very quick, almost 3-5 minutes long except for the long line.

Now I need to ask for you guys to share your experience and advice again:

What are our options for bringing my fiancee's family to participate in the wedding?

Thanks.

Each of the member's of your fiancee's family must apply for a tourist visa. The major qualification for a visitor visa is that the visitor can demonstrate to the satisfaction of the consular official that the visitor will return to their country at the end of the visa. This can include ongoing employment, property, etc., things/ties that show the visitor will go back home at the end of the visa.

Check out this pinned thread at the top of the Visitor Visa Forum: http://www.visajourney.com/content/visitor-visa-guide

It may be easier for the two of you to get married in a small ceremony in the US, start your AOS process, including applying for EAD/AP combo card. When your fiancee gets the combo card, plan a trip back to China and have a wedding celebration in China.

Good luck on your immigration journey.

We're having a wedding celebration in China next year for my wife's family and friends, it's going to be crazy!

For the actual ceremony in the US, I wrote and signed an invitation letter with all the details of our ceremony plans and my wife emailed it to her parents. They printed it out with a copy of my passport ID page attached to it and submitted it for the B-2 visa interview. They're both semi-retired, so it was fairly easy for them to prove that they had no intentions of immigrating. I believe they were required to escrow around $10k in their bank account until they returned, but it was painless. They presented the letter to the POE upon arrival in the US and they were allowed in with no problems. They received a multiple entry each 90 days in length for 5 years visa.
