Celebrity honeymoons are usually extravagant, but which current A-list couples had the most unique post-wedding experiences? Here are our top picks. Notably absent? Reese Witherspoon. She’s postponing her honeymoon with Jim Toth to promote her new film, “Water for Elephants.”
1. Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise: The Maldives
When you’re Tom Cruise, where do you take your new bride directly after your Italian wedding? To a secret island in the Maldives, of course. The pair spent most of their time jetting from island to island via boat. It’s good to be TomKat.
2. Carrie Underwood and Mike Fisher: French Polynesia
The country singer and hockey star flew to Tahiti to bask in their newlywed bliss. Their resort room was an “overwater suite,” meaning the floor was made of glass, giving unobstructed views of the ocean below. High on their agenda? Swimming with reef sharks.
3. Bethenny Frankel and Jason Hoppy: St. Bart’s
Bethenny had something not many other celebrity couples can boast about on their honeymoons: a bun in the oven. But pics and reality-show clips showed the couple having a blast — and Bethenny’s with-baby body inspired envy in even non-preggers women. (Also, we’re a little bit in love with Jason Hoppy, and this is an excuse to show him sans shirt.)
4. Chelsea Clinton and Marc Mezvinsky: South Africa
You know what more honeymoons need? Lions. Chelsea and Marc had wild animals in spades when they jaunted to South Africa for a safari after their elegant Rhinebeck, New York, wedding.
