I think it may have something to do with bad luck.

I believe in the past people were offered a dose of alcohol after a meal before they were executed. Therefore asking someone to have a drink after dinner might be impolite.

Of course I could be wrong.

Drink beer on street?

I have not seen this at any time, any place anywhere in China.

After dinner most Chinese men play cards and drink plenty of rice wine.

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
