HAHA, this is the first time I meet such a question.Good question.Well , let me see...
Basically those two are the same.
Yet in my opion Cantonese are more open and willing to accept new things.
And of coursr the language are significantly different. Cantonses is more difficult than Mandarin.

I'd say Guangdong is to China what Spain is to Europe.. there is a more extroverted, warmer, more exotic and more lively lifestyle down here south...
and cantonese hiphop sounds really cool! Laughing out loud

Eating habits are different aren't they? (the times of eating etc.)

I must say this is actually a good question for once.

There are subtle differences. And don't ever tell Cantonese people they're the same as everyone else. They have a lot of cultural pride. One of the major differences in my opinion is that Cantonese people will eat ANYTHING.

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
