From what I've heard, Xi'an's air quality isn't too great as it's in the industrial center of China. I would suggest you buy an air purifier and some decent facemasks.

Also, if you have an iProduct there's an app in the App Store called China Air Quality Index. It has a map feature where you can check the pollution levels of just about any major city in China. 

You can zoom into Xi'an and see the results from monitoring stations all over the city.

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
