Are you a US Citizen? If you are a US Citizen or Permanent Resident, after you marry you could file an I-130 Petition. Whether or not there will be any problem is something that we cannot answer here. You should consult with an immigration attorney.

If you and your fiance get married within a short period after her entry into the US, then USCIS will argue that she had the intent to marry and stay in the US when she entered with her visa.

If she entered with a visitor visa, they will argue that her stated intention at the time is in contradiction with her intention now.

I agree with my colleagues. Marrying her so soon after she entered with a tourist visa may cause difficulty. It would be better if she left and you petitioned her after she returned with a fiancé or marriage visa.
