Hi there! I was just married on the Star in September, so I can help. I wrote a VERY detailed review that is posted on the Weddings board, but here is the link so you don't have to search for it:

 

Wedding Review

 

To answer your questions that may not be in the review..

 

Send me an email and I'll send you my pics of flowers and cake, etc. SuzyCruisy@aol.com. Ask for the wedding pics.

 

I didn't see any point in upgrading my bouquet, so I can't tell you anything about it. I really liked the standard dozen roses.

 

You can choose your bouquet colors from a list of standard ones they have, and might get to pay extra for more exotic colors. Again, I can't comment because the colors I wanted were standard ones.

 

You can't take the bouquet home because its illegal under the "fruits and flowers" you can't bring into the US through immigration. SO, take lots of pics of them!

 

I can't see why you wouldn't be able to bring a cake cutting set onboard, as long as you packed it in your checked luggage. The set they had us use was really nice though. And very guarded by the waitstaff.

 

My review will tell you ALL about my experience with the wedding experience. Since we don't have a choice in the matter, it was fine. I do have some tips for future brides in the review though.

 

It was dreamy!

 

Suzy

If you deal with Alba at the Wedding Experience she is great !! Some of the others we spoke weren't as helpful but once we found Alba it was great.

Suggest you check with Suzy Cruisey, who is often on this board. She wrote a lengthy review of her wedding last year on a Princess ship. Don't know if you can find using the "search feature".

 

My wife and I were invited to a wedding on the Golden Princess' trans-Atlantic fall of 2002, and thought it very well done. The Captain (Andy Proctor) and his staff did an excellent job, and it was a memorable experience. Each of the Princess ships offering this service has a Wedding Coordinator on the Purser's staff, and the one on the Golden was very efficient.

 

Good luck.

Make sure you check that CP got their license to marry you onboard! We were on the April 17 sailing and they didn't yet have it. One couple had to get off in G Cayman in all their finery with about 20 people on the tender to get married there. As for bringing flowers back we saw a couple who bought a tropical arrangement in Cozumel walk ashore at FL with his. The guard stopped him but then let him take it home. So what goes??
