I don't think the quality is higher, I think for many high-end products it's essentially the same quality.

As for the reason why it's more expensive here, I think it's twofold:

- on the one hand, even though this is China, these are imported products.
- China tries to encourage local consumption and companies. I wouldn't be surprised if extra taxes or tariffs were imposed to promote the homemade products.

The importers alway get much better price because of large quantity.
And as you know, the price level and production cost goes up a lot.

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
