Choosing a Maui Wedding Package
Just like anywhere else in America, there are a variety of businesses offering different Maui wedding packages. A quick bit of research online or from the Maui Visitors Information Service, will quickly overwhelm you with wedding package choices. They range in price from as little as a few hundred dollars to, really, as much money as you'd like to spend.
A lot of people opt for the simple wedding service for two on a secluded beach, with a few simple appetizers, some champagne and a hotel room to start your honeymoon. Weddings such as these can be arranged for you for as little as $200, depending on the hotel room, of course.
More expensive Maui wedding packages offer a ceremony on the beach with live music and as soon as you've recited your vows, you and your new spouse will be whisked off to a waiting yacht for a moonlight cruise in the gentle ocean waters as you begin your honeymoon in style and splendor.
For the more traditional, there are Maui wedding packages available in a variety of wedding chapels across the island. For a small fee you can drive up to the chapel, get married and then depart on your own to start your honeymoon and continue your vacation. Other people prefer to arrive by limousine, take their vows and then enjoy a lavish party for their friends and loved ones at the location. Others prefer to get married in the lovely town of Lahaina where you can get married and then party till dawn at any -- or all -- of the town's famous watering holes.

Marriage Missing its Spark?
If the fires of passion in your marriage have been reduced nearly to embers, then you are not alone. One of the most common problems that can damage a marriage is the loss of spark?or spice, or whatever you like to call it. It's really not so easy to get yourself or your partner "in the mood" once you have become very familiar with each other. Of course, it's wonderful to be familiar with your spouse because familiarity is the basis of intimacy. But intimacy is not the same as passion, is it? Routine is the culprit. If the proper countermeasures are not deployed against routine's assault on your relationship, then it will drain all the passion right out of your marriage. Routine is a tenacious killer of passion?a suspect in the deaths of over 1 million steamy romances. I know routine comes in very handy for showers and oil changes, but it has no place in the bedroom.
