Q: Anyone had experience to have advertisements in SH People's Square?

People post their advertisements in Shanghai People's Square for marriage?


Wonder anyone did it and the results.


Besides, they should have their own real pictures without Photoshop effects on their adv.

Yes, it's a well-known wedding market place : people comes with a paper, with pictures, a description of who they are and what they want. It can be the person itself, but most of the time, it's the mom or the dad of the person to marry. Think of a dating website in real-life, with mommy filling-in your profile and picking your dates. What can possibly go wrong, mom knows best Do they find love ? Well, they might find a suitable partner according to mommy criteria, that's one result. About love, I guess that's an optional but welcome side-effect of the whole procedure.

I saw this in Nanjing, next to one of the gate of the big downtown public park. It seems to be a common sight in Chinese cities.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
