Q: Best tailors in Beijing? Where and how much?

I want to get a blouse and maybe a dress tailor-made. If people could share their experiences that would be great. I particularily want to know which tailors are best and how much their services cost approx?

Try the tailors at Yashow. They have experience dealing with foreigners, speak English and do a reasonable job. A dress will probably cost you somewhere between 700-1200 depending on the fabric.

I've always had much problems with the taylors at Yaxiu. Over the past years, they've become really full of themselves, talking very badly. As for their jobs : i've had to redo most of the past pants and jackets they did for me and they managed to loose not 1 pants but a very expensive shirt too...
I recommand the guys at the Sizhou silk store, in the building at the south-east crossroad of Sanlitun and gonti beilu. 
It is also worth trying small taylor shops behind yaxiu and on the street that leads back to xinzhonglu. Some of them are really good...

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
