    "Ma soeur va se marier au printemps." it's something that people would say but should not write. It's like a word to word translation from english "will marry", in oral, people use future tense of verb going ("va") to translate "will".
    " Je vais manger. Tu vas danser. Il va se marier. Vous allez voir." But correct French would be : " Je mangerai. Tu danseras. Il se mariera. Vous verrez."

    Donc à l'écrit, il serait mieux de dire : "Ma soeur se mariera au printemps."
