Monaco's Royal Honeymoon


While the marriage of Charlene and the Prince of Monaco may be over -- but that means their fabulous honeymoon is just beginning. Insiders spotted hotel employees putting up finishing touches all around The Oyster Box, an opulent hotel in Durban, South Africa, where the couple is believed to be staying, reports the Daily Mail.

After all kinds of split rumors, the 53-year-old Prince is supposedly shelling out 4,600 pounds (over $7,300!) per night to "persuade" his new bride that their marriage can work. The two are said to be staying in the Presidential Suite, which is set on two floors and includes an ornate bed, private swimming pool, and floor-to-ceiling windows that overlook the Indian Ocean. There's also a private dining area which can seat up to 10 people.

An insider tells the Daily Mail that it's "a perfect place for a pair of newlyweds, and may well be all that Charlene needs to make her feel certain that marrying Albert was exactly the right thing to do."

Charlene has married Prince Albert despite rumors of his fathering another love child, which might prove the Prince to be unfaithful. Prince Albert already has two children from previous trysts, 19-year-old Jazmin and a 6-year-old son named Alexandre.

Nicole Richie Gets a One-Day Honeymoon?


Newlyweds Joel Madden and Nicole Richie have finally taken some well-deserved alone time. The couple married on December 11, and since then have both been too busy to take an actual honeymoon, reports the U.K.'s Daily Mail.

Now in Paris on his European Tour, Joel, frontman for the pseudo-punk band Good Charlotte, walked arm in arm with Nicole, window shopped in fashion boutiques, and despite the cold visited the Sacre Coeur. Ever the trend-setter, Nicole braved the cold weather in black trousers with knee-high Christian Louboutin leather boots, a sateen black coat, an over-sized scarf, and a leopard print blouse.

So maybe the honeymoon came a little bit late and was a little bit short, but at least they took one. Any of you brides putting off the honeymoon for a little while after the wedding?

Newlyweds Jenna Dewan and Channing Tatum Get Matching Tattoos – Would You?

Channing_tatum_jenna_dewan_honeymoonIn case you missed it, Jenna Dewan recently tweeted about her honeymoon in Bali with new hubby Channing Tatum. The bad news: “Chan got sooooo our mini moon was really like 2 days”, she tweets. The Good: The pair had time to get matching tattoos that mean “side by side in Balinese” in honor of their new life together. Back when newlyweds Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon got matching tattoos, we asked if you thought doing so is a jinx, and you didn’t seem to think so. So, we ask again – should they, or shouldn’t they have made such a permanent declaration of love? Thoughts?

Kendra Wilkinson and Hank Baskett's Tech-Free Honeymoon Fun


Newlyweds Kendra Wilkinson and Hank Baskett honeymooned for nine days at Jade Mountain. Located in St. Lucia, the 600-acre resort is bordered by two private Caribbean beaches, and from the looks of the photos she shared in Us Weekly and on her blog, these two had the time of their lives.

"Me and Hank had the most INCREDIBLE time on our honeymoon in St. Lucia," blogs Wilkinson. "It was sooooo relaxing and so amazing to finally be married and not dealing with any of the stresses that come with planning a wedding! We loved every minute of it!"

The couple stayed in the resort’s luxurious “SUN” Infinity Pool Sanctuary. “It’s a 2,000 square-foot room…overlooking the ocean,” Wilkinson revealed to US Weekly. Daily rates range from $850 - $1450 per couple.

The lovebirds were totally isolated from the outside world with no access to a telephone, radio, or television. (They weren’t even allowed to use their cell phones in public!) So how did they keep themselves entertained? The couple had several day excursions to choose from, including coral reef snorkeling and hiking tours.

Website Offers Celebrity-Inspired Travel Packages for (Super!) Cheap

Cheap_flights_325 is putting celebrity-style destination weddings and honeymoons within reach for every bride, whether your budget is platinum or ATM. Their new Celebrity Travel on the Cheap tool is exactly the kind of celebrity imitation we crave.

In a move that’s sure to help you get over those recession blues, the site offers access to inexpensive getaways inspired by celebrity vacations and nuptials. Try a Parisian affair a la Eva Longoria Parker and Tony Parker's 2007 wedding weekend, or a blissful day at the beach in Turks and Caicos, where Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner shared intimate “I dos”. Other decadent escapes include Rome, London and California wine country – all for up to 60% less than the prices we’ve been seeing elsewhere. (If there was such thing as “the Best Buy of travel sites”, this site appears to be it!)

Each destination has an individual website packed with essential knowledge about climate, entry requirements, sites to see and more. Such a comprehensive and easy-to-navigate travel site is a rarity, and the services extend beyond the wedding day as well. Need to plan a sensual honeymoon or a wild bachelorette romp? provides other celebrity inspired packages too, from the sexy “Trysts and Hideaways” options to the Paris and Lindsay themed “Wild Child” haunts.

While we’d never advise you to imitate celebs every day (over-sized sunglasses and venti lattes aside), who hasn’t wished for A-list accommodations that weren’t way out of financial reach? The genie has answered people! Excuse me while I get back to booking my next trip to Rome, for half the price!

More Details on Josh and Fergie’s Honeymoon!

Fergie_Josh_250 What would you do if you had the opportunity to enjoy some quality R&R at a super-ritzy villa in the Maldive Islands? Well, if you’re anything like newlyweds Josh Duhamel and Fergie, your honeymoon would also include, “cooking classes, private yoga and tennis lessons, spa treatments, scuba diving and, of course, fishing.”

According to Us Magazine, the duo (who wed on January 10 and then jetted off to the super-luxe One & Only Reethi Rah Resort on January 13), tried to keep it simple: “romantic relaxation — lying in the sun, tanning, just having a relaxing time," says a source.

The couple decided to extend their vacation to a “mini-moon” at the Atlantis Resort in the Bahamas where they both lent their star power to the Michael Jordan Celebrity Invitational. After twelve days of bliss, the newlyweds returned to Los Angles on Sunday looking tan and refreshed.

Josh and Fergie’s Exotic Honeymoon Adventure!


We told you we’d update you on newlyweds Josh Duhamel and Fergie’s big adventure, and it looks like this couple has up and slipped off to the exclusive Reethi Rah One and Only Hotel in the Maldives.

Located in the North Male Atoll, this upscale resort boasts 130 individual villas, 12 beaches, 37 private pools, a huge wine cellar, 24 hour airport transfer by yacht, and numerous other luxury amenities, including flat screen TVs, an extensive fitness and wellness center, cooking classes, and wine tasting workshops.

At $1,780 a night, the Reethi Rah certainly isn’t cheap, but is it really worth the hefty price tag? travelers give this 5-star resort four and a half out of five and describe it as, “heaven on earth,” “absolute perfection,” “almost faultless.”

The Reethi Rah might not exactly be in your price range, but with compliments like this, it might be worth saving up for.
