Is it easier to just marry my fiancee in the Philippines then bring her home?

According to U.S. Immigration rules the department of homeland security and Philippines government both have created lengthy waits due to authentication of marriage certificates, background checks, financial verification, and simply just shuffling applications from department to department and the back-ups are numerous with applications coming in from all over the world?

Average waiting time if you get married in the Philippines generally ranges from 9 to 12 months?

Using a k1 fiancee visa is simply much faster with wait times averaging from 3 to 5 months?
K1 Fiancee Visas go much faster because they have a K1 unit that streamlines for faster application approval.
