Depending on your home country, you can easily get a new one in Hong Kong.  It takes about 3 days time.

Try Forever Bright Trading Company in Hong Kong.  They are about the best agent that is out there.  I have found them vey reliable in the past. You can email them the particulars and they will give you a direct answer as to your situation, etc., etc.  It's also a no visa, money-back guarantee kind of a company.

If you aslready had two extensions, the only way out is to get a new one.  No more extensions are allowed unless you have a very good "guangxi".

And yes, one alternative would be to get a new "L" visa from Hong Kong.  But that does present two distint disadvantages to you, and they are:
1.- Sometimes at the Chinese Embassy in Hong Kong, they are reluctant to issue tourists visas to foreigners there, and request that you must go to your home country to get it.  In fact, it is posted on some of their walls, and ignored many times.
2.-  If they do agree to give you a visa, it would be normally for 6 months, one or two entries, and 30 days stay in general, which is what a regular tourist arriving in Hong Kong would want if desiring to visit the Mainland.  If that satisfies you, then do get it in Hong Kong. 

Good luck to 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
