If you’re doing a K-1 visa, you’re going to be on a tight and unpredictable timeline. That makes planning a traditional wedding very difficult. Most venues and caterers are booked a year of more in advance. Will you have an on-demand space at your disposal, like a relative’s big back yard? If not, you may want to opt for a less traditional, smaller affair; perhaps just immediate family and closest friends with a reception in a trendy restaurant.

WendaEvg:  Depending on your church it will be different. My suggestion would be to ask the priest/pastor/minister what the traditions are in that church. Typically the groom stands at the altar at the beginning of the ceremony, then the bridesmaids walk in with the groomsmen, then flower girls and ring bearers (if you have them), then the bride with her father. There are other arrangements, though, and it’s basically up to personal preference in most cases. Rules for music will depend on the church. The most common is Wagner’s wedding march and Pachabel’s Canon in D, but some churches do not allow them because they are not religious songs. The maid of honor is the only bridesmaid that “does” something. She will hold your bouquet when you hold hands with the groom, and holds onto the groom’s ring until you need it to put on his finger. The best man holds onto your ring until your groom needs to put it on your finger. Other than that, bridesmaids and groomsment pretty much just stand there and look nice.
