Even though Rebecca Romijn was due back at work the Monday after her July 14 (2007, RRF) wedding to Jerry O'Connell, the couple refused to postpone the honeymoon. Their solution: take the wedding trip first, head down the aisle later.
"I highly recommend to anyone that's getting married to take the honeymoon first," Romijn told PEOPLE at the ABC Television Critics Association party in Beverly Hills on Thursday night. "We got to spend a great deal of time together before we got married relaxed and with a tan."
The pair, who were at the event to boost their respective ABC shows (she stars on the Emmy-nominated Ugly Betty while he's on the fall comedy Carpoolers), managed two weeks off to bask in a pre-wedding glow. "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," Romijn said. "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."
Romijn, 34 and O'Connell, 33, were wed in an intimate ceremony in Los Angeles before 100 family and friends. Still, jumping back into work, says Romijn, was a good thing, given that she developed a small case of post-wedding blues.
After the festivities, "We both had the day off Tuesday, and we were driving around going 'What do we get ready for now?' " Romijn recalled. "And then we realized we both were starting to suffer from post-wedding depression. And the good news is, when you have to go back to work, you jump right back into your routine and that's that."
The actress tells People she's keeping Romijn as her stage name, though she joked that she has considered "just taking the 'O' " and changing her name to "Rebecca O' Romijn" – in honor of her husband's Irish heritage.

Jerry O'Connell goes green
Jerry O'Connell: "I love the Bay Area. I'm addicted to Zachary's pizza, I only drink Peet's coffee in the morning, and I'm now officially a member of the Raider Nation," says O'Connell, still giddy about his recent nuptials. "My in-laws live in the Bay Area, so we go up there a lot. We just visited my sister-in-law, who lives in Richmond. And I'm still trying to eat at Chez Panisse, which they said was booked until October when I called for a reservation. I drive a Prius and get angry if people don't recycle. The little lady has got me living the Bay Area lifestyle."
Later, when asked to confirm her husband's conversion to Green, Romijn laughed. "Yeah, he's driving my Prius," Romijn says. "Hey, at least he's driving a Prius. My mom bought us a purified water system for our wedding present and Jerry decided to put solar panels in. I didn't turn Jerry green, but I think I might have started the fire under his butt." Romijn says they haven't stopped enjoying their life since they've been together. "We took our honeymoon in June before the wedding and I highly recommend it," says Romijn, who looked fabulous. "I got married relaxed and with a tan."

Jerry and Rebecca - Happily Married, But Not Boring!
Jerry O'Connell & Rebecca Romijn are a happily married couple, but not boring, says Jerry.
Jerry was outside the Music Box over the weekend, where he was outwardly looking for our friends from TMZ. When a TMZ staffer popped up, Jerry said that TMZ had called Jerry and Rebecca a "boring couple" ... TMZ says the actual quote was "sexy-yet-somehow-bland", but nonetheless, Jerry was upset.
Jerry said, "I can't believe Harvey did that to us, after all we've been through together." Jerry took the whole thing in stride though, even joking that perhaps he should fight the paps.
