I searched high and low for the information number but to no avail. I did, however, find this which could be useful and you could ask them for the information number:

"The service, facing to all residential customers and mobile customers, provides standardization service through community managers system,Contract system in rural areas and the hotlines with the uniform access number of "10000"."

Also in Shanghai they have an international service which provides information and was implemented during the World Expo 2010. I don't know if it is still operational:

"China Telecom recently announced the launch of an information inquiry hotline '4008882580' for international visitors in preparation for the World Expo 2010.

"We offer daily life information inquiry and booking services for the international visitors to Shanghai," a China Telecom official Interfax.

Still in its trial stage, the hotline offers 24-hour service in English and Chinese languages. The users can book taxis, and make hotel and restaurant reservations through the hotline. The hotline also provides phone numbers to the users"

114 for phone numbers of any entity. (But for specific number in other province, you have to add the provincial number to the front of it. You can also dial 114 to check what the provincial numbers are).
12580 for weather, bus rout information etc.
119 for fire fighter,
110 call the police
112 report for traffic accident

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
