Yes...hotels that cater to westerners will even give you an English invoice.
Taxis, restaurants and stores will always give you one, but they will be in Chinese, but still a normal reciept.  
If they don't give you one then say "Fāpiào" and they will know to give you one.  Because I am here on business and expense almost all costs I have become a master of getting reciepts for everything.

Big places will give you one, all you have to do is ask.  The smaller and cheaper the place the more you have to push to get one, and the more likely it will be fake (government tax that they would have to pay, fakes work for most expense reports anyway).  If you are buys from the little street vendor, you're not going to get receipt.

Hotels no problem as long as they were legally able to house you.

Taxis as long as you take a real one.  Black taxis, mototaxis, and the three wheeled little flying dragons you won't get one.

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
