How do you beat the post-honeymoon blues? By attending red carpet events and buying vintage goodies, of course!
Fresh from their honeymoon in Costa Rica, Mexico, Brazil and Europe, newlyweds Ian Somerhalder and Nikki Reed stepped out on the carpet at the 2015 CMT Music Awards on Wednesday.
Still channelling the all-white bridal look, Nikki stunned in a crisp a-line halterneck mini dress, whilst Ian wore a polished suit.
Earlier in the week, the new Mr and Mrs did a spot of shopping, where Ian treated his new bride to a chic wedding gift.
According to People, Ian introduced his new bride to his friends Seth Weisser and Gerard Maione, who own the luxury vintage boutique What Goes Around Comes Around in New York. The chicest bride of 2014, Amal Clooney, also shops in this Soho treasure trove.
An insider revealed; "Ian wanted to bring Nikki to his favorite store - and surprise her with a wedding gift."
And what did the bride chose? "He bought her a rare, black, gold-chained, quilted, vintage Chanel camera bag," the source told People. "It's her dream bag." And ours!
We love the idea of a bit of retail therapy to see off any post-honeymoon blues; "They had fun looking through all the other vintage pieces in the store and bought a great selection of stuff to take home." Amongst her haul, Nikki bought a cool (and white!) Gianfranco Ferre duster, which she wore out of the shop - along with her new Chanel bag.
What a lucky girl!

Newlyweds Ian Somerhalder and Nikki Reed might have returned from their honeymoon in South and Central America, but they're still on cloud nine since tying the knot last month.
The pair shared a snap of their honeymoon on Instagram (featuring a shirtless Ian, ladies!) with an adorable caption thanking his wife.
The Vampire Diaries star wrote; "Feet back on US soil aka... New York City. Dreaming of the Costa Rica rainforest. Thank you to this beautiful country: its land and its people. Thank you to this beautiful woman who makes every day a dream come true. Pura Vida."
Twilight actress Nikki previously shared a picture from the holiday adding, "Salty...sandy...sticky...sunburned. The best. I love this human. My human." Cute eh?
Far from suffering post-honeymoon blues, Ian took to the CW Upfront carpet this week to gush about married life. He revealed to E! Online; "Amazing. It's great. It's the best time I've ever had."
He even showed the reporter his "incredible" wedding ring before explaining that Nikki had designed it.
What a sweet couple!

Was Ian Somerhalder a bit of a Groomzilla?
When The Vampire Diaries star wed Twilight actress Nikki Reed at the Tuscali Mountain Inn in Topanga in California on the weekend, we admired the perfectly rustic styling. Little did we realise that the big day was the groom's vision…
Us Weekly has reported that Nikki was happy for her new husband to take the lead on the main details of the day.
An insider revealed; "Nikki originally wanted a small wedding. But Ian envisioned a big wedding. She was happy to let him call the shots."
The result? A gorgeous "rustic-themed" affair with a live band, where guests dined at long tables adorned with pale blooms.
Ian's fellow Vampire Diaries stars Kat Graham, Paul Wesley, Matt Davis and Phoebe Tonkin attended the celebrations.
In lieu of traditional wedding gifts, the loved-up pair asked for donations to the Ian Somerhalder Foundation for rescued animals. How sweet!
After all the weekend's celebrations, it seems the newlyweds are perfectly placed to take a fabulous honeymoon. A source told Us Weekly: "Both of their schedules are pretty clear for a while. They're planning an extravagant trip around the world!"

And the bride wore… Claire Pettibone!
The gorgeous Nikki Reed customised one of the designer's Fall 2015 gowns for the big day.
On the catwalk, the swoon-worthy couture beaded ivory dress featured delicate lace straps which Nikki switched for an elegant boat neck style. Other additions included chic bracelet-length sleeves, which perfectly complimented the gown's plunging low back and added a boho vibe to the look.
Claire Pettibone worked with the actress in her Los Angeles salon to create the perfect look, commenting "Nikki was a delight to design for, and I wish the beautiful couple every happiness."
Here's to that!

Congratulations are in order for The Vampire Diaries star Ian Somerhalder and Twilight actress Nikki Reed!
The loved-up couple tied the knot on Sunday in a sunset ceremony in Santa Monica.
The couple moved in together three weeks into their relationship so it's no surprise that Ian and Nikki kept their engagement short and sweet! Ian proposed after six months of dating in January, with a source revealing to E! News at the time; "They're so happy. They were crazy happy from the start. Their families love each other. It just feels really right."
Our bridal radar went into overdrive when pictures of the big day itself appeared on Twitter showing the couple amidst a perfectly style setting with pale blooms and strings of twinkling lights.

Nikki, 26, is pictured carrying a pure white bouquet wearing a white lace fishtail gown with elegant bracelet-length sleeves. And her gently mermaid-like waved locks?! Cue serious mane envy...
The groom, 36, meanwhile looked dapper in a white suit and had secured his adorablity rating after he gushed excitedly on Twitter earlier in the day:
[Html##<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p>most beautiful morning ever...</p>— ian somerhalder (@iansomerhalder) <a href="https://twitter.com/iansomerhalder/status/592417956396597248">April 26, 2015</a></blockquote> <script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>##Id¬1g0gjv]
According to the Daily Mail, Ian's fellow Vampire Diaries star Kat Graham foresaw the wedding, saying "I haven't met two people that were more of soul mates than those guys. They are so absolutely amazing. Everyone loves them, and I really can't imagine him with anyone else."
Now the couple have made their match official!
