Ok so the best cost effective way to going about this is to ask someone at a big store such as walmart or carrefour etc., They get shipments in everyday with big boxes that they will throw away anyways. Whenever I had to get boxes I never bought mine I just went to the store and asked someone in charge of the logistics there I'm sure if you ask them politely and you give good reason as to why you need them they will be happy to give you a few that they have in the back. You are afterall a customer or that's what they think you may be and one of their priorities is to please the customer!

Many local moving companies provides boxes, 10 RMB per box.  You can get them deliver to you boxes even if you don't get them to move for you.

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
