PMV 300/ Partner Visa 309

Hi Respected members,

I am getting engaged to my Indian partner who I met through an Indian Matrimony website Shaadi. com a few months back and soon fell in love
, we have met in person and the families has agreed to the marriage.

Our agent is suggesting the 300 Prospective Marriage Visa as the safest and smoothest option for us as we may not have enough evidence for the Partner Visa.
I agree that we can lodge this visa right away and can circumvent the upcoming rule changes which are waiting to be implemented from April of this year.

Whereas while talking with my Indian friends most of them had opted for the 309 visa after marriage registration/social wedding.

Most Indians apparently don't opt for the PMV 300 visa, rather go for the 309 visa.

What are the options for us?

Apply a 300 visa and then get married in India soon after and tell the CO to change our application to a 309 visa.
Come back in a couple of months, do the registry marriage and apply for the 309 visa after that. Do a social wedding soon thereafter.

At this point feeling a bit confused with the advise we have received from our agent, which contradicts what most people are doing and seems like the most straightforward option.
