On Monday, R&B starÂ Bobby BrownÂ tied the knotÂ to manager Alicia Etheridge while visiting Hawaii to perform a New Edition concert. The recent groom originallyÂ popped the questionÂ to the new Mrs. Bobby Brown in 2010 during a sold-out concert, just three years after hisÂ divorceÂ from the late Whitney Houston. He later opened up toÂ People, saying Â â€śI got my passion back for music and for loving myself because of her.â€ť Family and friends were in attendance to support the couple, but Brownâ€™s daughter with Houston, Bobbi Kristina Brown, was absent because of her poor relationship with her father. Unfortunately, theÂ newlywedsÂ will not be spending theirÂ honeymoonÂ in Hawaii due to forthcoming tour dates, but will at least continue traveling side-by-side.
What do you do if you don’t have time for a honeymoon after your wedding?
A honeymoon allows newlyweds to embrace the beginning of their new long-lasting marriage, but itâ€™s not always possible to spend the time or money to have one right away. Here are some great alternatives that will let you celebrate your new marriage even if a traditional honeymoon isnâ€™t an option:
1. Bring the honeymoon to you:Â A honeymoonâ€™s significance isnâ€™t the location, but the meaning behind it. You can have relaxing daysÂ togetherÂ and romantic dinners wherever you are.
2. Daring adventure:Â Try a new activity that you might do on a honeymoon. For example, skydiving or swimming with sharks is a memory that youâ€™ll always share as something you didÂ as a couple, even if you do it close to home.
3. Honeymoon suite:Â Rent the honeymoon suite at a fancy hotel in the same area as your wedding. If you canâ€™t honeymoon for an extended period of time, you can at least get the honeymoon experience for oneÂ special night.
