Confused by what forms they want?!

Hello!

First of all, thank you for reading this, second, I think my head is going to explode!

I'm a K-1 Visa Applicant and I'm the beneficiary. My interview is in London on Friday 21st November, so this week! Scary! I am just collecting all my forms, but there's a lot of conflicting information on what forms are needed and not needed. One embassy site will say you don't need one form but need another and another official site will say the opposite. I'm all for filling in everything just to be safe, (you should see all the extra stuff I'm taking with me that I probably won't touch but I like to be extra careful), but there's one main point that confuses me, and I was hoping some lovely person could help me out that recently been through it? Or just knows, either way, I would be extremely grateful (I swear I've gotten grey hairs since this visa process started!)

So here's the issue (finally)

I have seen many times that I needed a D-160, so Ive got one and printed everything it wanted me to print. Now I was just looking through the forms that this sight provides under Form Downloads - K-1 Fiance(e) Visa Forms and I was going to print off:

DS-156K, Non-Immigrant Fiance(e) Visa Application,

DS-156, Non-Immigrant Visa Application,

DS-230, Application for Immigrant Visa and Alien Registration.

I understand that in lighter print after it says they are provided by the embassy, but I wanted to get my head round them before I got there (for reasons).

Now, when I clicked on DS-156, Non-Immigrant Visa Application, (linked here: http://evisaforms.state.gov/default.asp) it sent me to a page that said I needed to fill it out online and press continue and print it after, the page also states that the DS-156, Non-Immigrant Visa Application is for K visa applicants and the DS-160 online: Non-Immigrant Visa Application is for all other applicants.

I'm getting my wires crossed somewhere because they can't be telling me the wrong information, surely? Do I now fill out the DS-156 and ignore the DS-160 or vice versa? I'm pretty sure they want my DS-160 when I enter the embassy...

I'm really hoping I've made sense, and what someone is most likely to tell me is that I'll do this at the Embassy... Or to just ignore them and stop worrying... But seriously anyone who is able to put my crazy mind at rest, I would really appreciate it.

Thanks in advance, you are a star!
