There's nothing you can do even if you wanted to. I definitely wouldn't say anything until she's about 23. If you say something now and get on her bad side you'll have no chance later. Show love, support and acceptance now so that when she's older she takes you advice into account.

Who says marriage is right for her now? One of the worst things for shalom bayis is pressurizing before someone is ready. I would have a serious conversation with her about what it means to be an adult and long term goals, do you want her living on her own, helping out with x, y, whatever makes sense, etc and not just support her indefinitely unless she is a student (I don’t think it’s so normal for a single 25 year old to still live at home and be supported by parents) . But when she is ready to get married is for her to decide, potentially with an advisor or someone not so emotionally involved.
