We did K1 so I'm not sure on this one, but I think you should send a little more evidence then just a contract to purchase a home and photo's. Do you guys have a joint bank account, is she on your health / car insurance, joint bills etc? That's good evidence. But again, we did K1 so maybe in your case just the contract an some photo's are enough.

I thought we can submit I-693 later because if I submit it now it might expire.  Can anyone clarify?

You can infact take the I-693 to your interview. You will get an RFE stating that you need to do so. 

Make sure the packet is sealed!!!
