Default fiance #1=US citizen, fiance #2=UK citizen with US green card - marriage advice

Hello.

My fiance and I both live and work in the US. I am a citizen of the US, he is a UK citizen with a green card for the US. We plan to get married sometime in the next year and will continue to live and work in the US for at least the next few years.

Our plan is to get married in the US to avoid the fiance and spouse hassles with a UK marriage but we're still wondering what else we have to do (e.g., change his marital status for his green card).

Any advice?

cheers.

This should be re-posted on US forum.
Getting just married in UK but returning to US afterwards isn't too difficult. All you need is a marriage visitor visa which is quite simple to get and costs $129. UK marriage certificate is valid for official purposes in US.
