It depends on your local area. Head outside to see one of those delivery guys on the pedal tricycles (or electric bike) that delivers water, there is usually a phone number on them somewhere.  If not, ask him for a card.  He'll probably ask where you live, tell him your address and see if he delivers there (if you see him in your general neighborhood, it's a safe bet he does.) These guys will usually have you buy lots of bottled water and give you redeemable tickets, so be prepared to shell out a few hundred RMB. Or just ask a neighbor if you can speak Chinese.

 

Also, you can order if from Carrefour if there is one close by:

For the "Big 3" in Shanghai, (I haven't used them in years) here are the numbers.  They DO NOT have English speaking the last time I used any of them, but feel free to check:\

Watsons

Nestle

Whenever i move to new apartment, the security guys are the right people who introduce you with these water guys..they generally prefers that you buy at least two or three bottles at once..

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
