Quick question about the DS-160 form for a H4 Visa Interview…

Quick question about the DS-160...
Quick question about the DS-160 form for a H4 Visa Interview for my fiancee - We'll be getting legally married on May 8th 2017, and want to have a Visa Interview scheduled for 9th or 10th May to avoid wasting any time.Would if be okay for her to fill out the DS-160 beforehand and fill in a status of "married"? Does the information on the DS-160 have to be current as of the interview or as of the date of filing before selecting interview dates?Thank you!
