It really does not matter where you get married for immigration purposes; however, where you get married and when will determine which path you will take to bring your fiancee/spouse to the US, either as a spouse visa petition or a fiancee visa petition.  They both take about the same length of time for processing so it should be whatever is best for you and family.
