Immigration marriage to Green card holder
The simple answer is yes, they can get married in a tourist visa but it is not recommended mainly because you are leaving before the visa expires. You might not be able to come back in unless your green card petition gets approved. Talk to an immigration attorney first and make a wise decision. All the best.
