usually, what boys do is use the girlfriends name twice. If a girl is calle Yu Chen, then she will often be addressed as Chen Chen, Liu Cong will be Cong Cong, etc.
As to having an equivalent to "Darling" or "Honey" I will need to ask around.

亲爱的(qin ai de)... i think it would translate to something like "darling"

I agree on repeating a word twice. Names such as Bu Bu, CoCo, and actually TaiTai means wife so that can also be used.

i think  "Darling" or "Honey" is better, as you can call any girlfriend "darling", it is difficult  to make a mistake if you have many girlfeiends.

My GF asked me to call her "Sweetie", she likes that.  I used to call her Yin Yin (Rose Rose) but she claims I misspronounce it so badly she has no idea what I am saying.

And the reverse, when she is in a good mood and maybe wants something, she will call me "honey".  When she is upset at me she calls me "stupid".

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
