Last time I checked, the honeymoon was supposed to come after the wedding -- as a time to -- you know -- consummate the marriage and whatnot.
Ugly Betty's Rebecca Romijn (who wed Jerry O'Connell on July 14) has other ideas. She told People.com that it's much to have the honeymoon before walking down the aisle, which due to work scheduling conflicts, is exactly what she did.
"I highly recommend to anyone that's getting married to take the honeymoon first," Romijn told People. "We got to spend a great deal of time together before we got married relaxed and with a tan."
She continued, "We spent the first few days out in Montauk [on New York's Long Island] with Jerry's parents, and then we went down to Mexico for nine days. It was the way to do it, and at the wedding we had butterflies, but every time we talked about it for the weeks leading up to it, we just felt so warm and excited."
Okay, so not so traditional, but let's be honest, the cat's out of the proverbial purity bag anyway, right? So why not!
