Where To Elope For January 01, 2010: Aloha, Maui

If one of your resolutions is to elope on New Year's Day, but you're looking for something a little more romantic than getting hitched at a Vegas drive-through window, take a flight now to Maui.

Flying there is the hardest step to tying the knot. All you have to do is head to a marriage license agent with your soon-to-be spouse, show proof of age and plunk down $60. There isn't a waiting period and no blood tests are needed. You can save time by downloading a marriage license application here and having it filled out when you visit the agent. Just be sure to call the local agent to make an appointment so that you can get hitched on January 1 without any issue.

The only snag that you might run into is that if you're coming off of another marriage or your sugar daddy recently died; you'll have to show proof of the original divorce decree or a death certificate if either event occurred within 30 days of applying for a marriage license.

There are a number of marriage licensing agents on the island, but the easiest way to an elopement is staying at a hotel like the Royal Lahaina Resort, where a wedding consultant will handle all of the deets of your big day, from making an appointment with a licensing agent to holding your nuptials on the hotel's property along Kaanapali Beach or the on-site flower-filled gazebo.

The best perk of getting married in Maui is that you get to kick off 2010 with a honeymoon on a tropical island. We believe the correct term is "weddingmoon."
