The problem about the parks in Beijing is that they are always quite busy

However, 2 of my favourites are: 

 

Longtan Park - east of the Temple of Heavan

Purple Bamboo Park - Haidian district

 

both have plenty of trees, which are ideal in the summer, and you can usually find a place to sit

However, beware the groups of singing people

Don't parks charge admission and too much for a park, they should be free.

Purple/ Black Bamboo Park (the Chinese says purple, the English says Black for some reason) is free, and there are tons of other smaller parks that are free and not too crowded, like tuanjiehu park near Hujialou, and Rendinghu park north of Gulou dajie station :D 

 

Chaoyang Park is still the best park for picnics/ lounging on the grass as well as the olympic forest park

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
