There is some risk (slight) that she might be denied entry by a zealous border agent. If they have reason to believe that she might not return to Canada, they might not allow her to enter. Their concern is that she is trying to avoid the K-1 fiancee visa process.

But, if she can demonstrate that she has strong ties to Canada, like a full-time job and assets like a car or a house, and the trip is just for the holidays, I doubt that she would have a problem. If it comes up at the customs and border “interview” (really questions by the border agent), she should just say that she intends to be there just for the holidays and return. If she is traveling by air, this should be no problem, since she will have a return ticket for a short time later.

Regardless of whether they marry in Canada or the US, she needs to get a K fiancee visa to enter the US permanently.

I hope this helps.
