If you cannot speak chinese it won't be a big deal. If you can read body language well you won't have a problem. if you can't do any of those than you better just bring a pocket dictionary or chinese phrase book with you at all times.

You will meet people that English. Get a translation app for your phone. I didn't have an app and managed to travel Bejing,Guilin, Yangshou,, Beijing, Xi'an, Guilin and back to Beijing without speaking Chinese. I met really nice people every where, just WATCH OUT for scammers, don't go for tea or coffee with someone you just met, the bill will be large, watch for thieves

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
