If you take an example from January/February of 2011, yes, it does snow in Beijing and in Shanghai during those months.

Beijing's snow depends on the government. If they decide it's too dry, they'll shoot up some chemicals to make it snow. But they're only fooling themselves if they think they can control mother nature. Just wait and see...wahahaha!!!!

I've looked at weather sites, but all it says is "percipitation" averages for these months. I live in upstate NY, near Buffalo, and we have average percipitation of like 40 inches (slight exageration). It's SNOW. I couldn't decide if the percip in BJ or Shanhai was snow or rain.... so thanks!

 

And LOL Redaria!

Well it snows here in Shanghai sometimes but it's not always promised. It's like the southern part of America, when you get snow it's like wow oh my god it's snowing and everyone is happy!!!!

The central plains area where Beijing and Shanghai are is really dry and prone to drought so don't expect to see much snow if its been a particularly dry year.

I have been in shanghai for 10 years and I can honesty say that it rarely ever snows but if it does, it's not very much and doesn't stay long. The most snow I have seen in shanghai was about 1 or 2 inches and it stayed about 3 days.

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
