My fiancee and I are currently going through the K-1 process. I was advised that NVC just sent my paperwork to Vietnam on June 23, 2018. I already booked a trip to Vietnam for my our engagement party on July 11 before our interview inquiry. Our marriage celebration will be on October. We will be filing the marriage license in the U.S. if her interview goes well.
Our concern is that what if my fiancee fails the interview and the i-129f was completely thrown out AFTER our marriage cele
Assuming my fiancee passes the interview and receives her visa. Can we have a wedding celebration in Vietnam before filing for a legal marriage in the US?
The reason for this is because I want her friends and family to be able to attend her "wedding celebration" before we file a legal marriage in the US, where she won't have any friends or family.
