You should probably contact your embassy/embassies for info about the legality of a marriage in China and if it would be recognised back in your own country.

I was always told, never confirmed that 2 foreigners could not marry in China unless you went to Hong Kong, also many mainland Chinese youth marry in Hong Kong without a hukou and at least 16 years of age. I suspect the mainland will change this as quick as possible.

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
