No. Single entry means one entry. I'm assuming you are already here so if you leave your entries are finished. You can, however, apply to extend your stay here for 30 days. You'll have to pay a fee. I believe the amount varies depending on which country you are from (so I've been told.) 

Perhaps they meant that you could go to Hong Kong, apply for a new visa, and re-enter that way?

you can come back before 29th but not on the same visa you are holding now. (going to HK is considered leaving the Chinese Visa area) you would have to apply for a new visa in HK.

 

i know this answer is late, but maybe somebody has a similar question in the future Wink

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
