It depends on your tolerance for wasted time.  That is a long haul to do every day.  Depending on where-to-where, it could take more than an hour each way.

For my tolerance level, I don't accept more than a 15 minute commute unless I am driving (or having my taxi paid for).

I haven't forgotten my commute time when I lived in America:  1 hour and 10 minutes driving in rush hour traffic.  Suzhou to Shanghai is a breeze by comparison, napping on the D-train.  I did Wuxi to Shanghai often enough to know.  It might be worth it to you if you like your diggs in Suzhou.

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
