Default UK wedding question

I'm a USC who recently got engaged to my UK girlfriend of two years. i live in the US and she in London. we want to get married in London in Aug - Sept, with my family flying over for the wedding. after the wedding my new wife wants to move to the US. what process should we start so things move smoothly with her Visa application?

First, note you need a special British visa from the British consulate in order to be able to marry in London.
The process to bring your future wife to the US, once married, is to first file an immigrant petition with the USCIS office in the United States. Once this petition is approved, (after about 6 months) the National Visa Center will contact your wife to request all kinds of documents/forms. Once her file is complete, the paperwork will be forwarded to the US embassy in London and an appointment with the embassy will be scheduled. After the appointment, she will have an immigrant visa which will enable her to immigrate to the United States.

The whole process will take 6-9 months. During that time, your wife can visit your temporarily in the US with the visa waiver program.
