If your visa is expired you will, at the very minimum, have to go the Division of Exit-Entry Administration of Public Security Department (出入境管理处)w in your local city and write an explanation of why you overstayed and apply for an extension. You can be fined 500 RMB for each day until the fine hits 5000 RMB. Overstaying your visa may make it more difficult to get another Chinese visa later on down the road. If you are still in China 10 days after your visa expires and are not in the process of applying for a new one you can be jailed, and deported after you get out. If you get deported you get a red stamp in your passport that gives you 10 days to leave China and makes it very hard to get another visa to China with the same passport.

Ahh. Its a test. So now comments put answers to the top?

Very good. I often tend to post answers rather than comments to promote the thread to the top. Very good change if comments now put it to the top.

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
