If they charge more than 7 rmb, I walk away. Unless you're trying to go to the highest, most professional place because it's your grandmothers silk blouse that she made when she was twelve (which I would have to ask why in the world would you bring it here), I would say use the small mom and pop shop that's down some alleyway. They care more about their work than some bigger place that hires the cheapest labor it can find, and they are normally cheaper.

I use a local husband and wife run shop, they charge me 10rmb to clean my down filled, localy made jackets. They do a very good job, compared to another one I used.....the other one is not here any more! Have a look inside the shop and see what they have hanging up.

I agree with choosing local smaller shops, they generaly did a better job than Fornet, which is the big brother of laundry mats here in Beijing. I never use Fornet anymore eversince they ruined my suede jacket.

I would say neither just do it yourself. Unless you don't have a washer and dryer and you really need it than it would be better to do it yourself and save yourself some cash.

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
