Newlyweds Kellie Pickler and husband Kyle Jacobs may have spent a couple romantic days in the Caribbean during their wedding, but their honeymoon destination was a little less glamorous. The two jumped on a plane and flew to Iraq where the country singer performed for troops as a part of the USO, and she said Jacobs loved it. “That was part of my honeymoon,” Pickler said according to People. “It was so romantic! No, it was just that I had already committed to going over there and I wasn’t going to cancel because that wouldn’t have been right.” As a long time supporter of the troops, the singer said it was a great experience for her to share with her new hubby.
What do you do if you don’t have time for a traditional honeymoon?
People live busy and hectic lives, and taking time off from work may seem impossible. If you don’t have time for a traditional honeymoon, Cupid has some tips to make sure you spend time together as newlyweds:
1. Make time: Everyone is entitled to some rest and relaxation, so plan to take time off from work together, and plan a trip. It might not be right after your wedding, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t call it a honeymoon.
2. Quick trip: You may not have a week to jet off to somewhere tropical, but you can go on a weekend trip to a destination where you know you’ll both have fun. Regardless of where you end up, you’ll be able to enjoy spending that time with each other, flaunting your wedding bands.
3. Take time: It’s important for newlyweds to enjoy alone time together, especially during the honeymoon stage so don’t take it for granted. Set aside one or two nights a week where you turn off your cell phones, put your work away and focus on doing something together whether it’s a dinner out or staying in and watching a movie.
