You know this is a really good question. I myself am interested in the lantern thing. I saw an episode of the bachelorette and that particular episode took place I believe it was SHanghai. Don't quote me on that city, but I believe it was. They had something special for the program they lit the lanterns and let them fly up into the air and they said make a wish and it could come true or something like this. I'm not sure what the meaning was but it did have some type of special meaning. Also, seeing the lanterns flying in the air looked cool on t.v. and I would actually like to see this. I've been in Beijing for some time now and I would probably say somewhere around the Chaoyang area. They always have something going on down there.

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
