Thanks for your question. I will try to help.
If she wishes to visit then you would have to apply for a visit visa again. If she has already been rejected then you may consider instructing a solicitor to do this for you.
You have to try and show them that she has continuing obligations in her home country which will continue after the visit and therefore convince them that she is not a risk of overstay because she at present has compelling family and social/work ties to her home country which mean that she will not attempt to secure a permanent stay here whilst she is visiting. Things like a letter from her employer stating she has a job (if he does) and is expected to return to continue that job, return flight tickets, evidence of continuing accommodation (eg. tenancy agreement of evidence of ownership of a property), bank statements showing the money she has available, letters from relatives/friends confirming any obligations she has to them.
In the long term if you marry outside of the UK and then propose to live the majority of time in the UK then she will have to apply from her home country for a spouse visa once you are married.
The webpage on spouse visas is here:https://www.gov.uk/join-family-in-uk
The eligibility criteria is here:-https://www.gov.uk/join-family-in-uk/eligibility
If the application is well prepared and you meet the following eligibility criteria then it will make the application easy and quick to decide upon for the UKBA. To be eligible, you must show:-
If your pension is above £18600 per annum then this will be sufficient to meet the financial requirement provided that you evidence it correctly.
She will need to apply for settlement (ie. spouses visa) by using form VAF4A Settlement, but the application is actually made online
I would strongly advise instructing a solicitor to prepare the spouse visa application before you marry because it is one of the most complicated visa applications that you can make. You can find Uk immigration solicitors through the following Law Society Website search engine:-
