    Default Looking ahead-wedding without legal "marriage" if not approved in t

    I was advised by my immigration attorney that doing a "non-legal"
    ceremony before the legal one while you're still waiting for paperwork
    is definitely ILLEGAL. Apparently it constitutes visa fraud because
    the person says they're coming in as a tourist, not to participate in
    a ceremony.

    So does that mean you can't get dressed up and go to a nice party
    while you're here as a "tourist"? I dunno.... doesn't make sense to
    me. But apparently when you go for your AOS interview and you have to
    show pictures of the wedding and all that, it could make for a very
    sticky situation.
