The first question we are asked is "Why are your prices so cheap compared to all the other proxy wedding services?" Our answer would be "Why are all the other wedding services so expensive?". And while you're at it, ask yourself why the other proxy wedding services don't even have physical addresses in the state of Kansas? A proxy marriage needs to be done in the state of Kansas and that is where our wedding chapel is located - in fact, we are just down the street from the courthouse. As the top rated Wedding Service in the Greater Kansas City area, we at Your Magical Daytm/Kansas Proxy Marriage take our role very seriously. Have you and your loved one been trying to get married for a long time but just keep running into obstacles? We are here to help couples get married who can't be together one way or another. Your beloved might be in the military, incarcerated, in another state or country, hospitalized or unable to get to you at the moment. Regardless of the reason we realize that it is a burden for you and having to go through the steps required to get a proxy marriage adds to that burden because most often it involves the expense of traveling and often the couples who need a proxy marriage the most are the ones who can least afford it. We don't want to add to that burden - our motto has always been that getting married should not cost an arm and a leg - just your hearts. Kansas is the only state left where Proxy Marriages are legal for couples in all the different situations (incarcerated, foreign country, different states, etc). Kansas proxy marriages are recognized in all states, in all branches of the military and in most countries. YOU DO NOT NEED TO GET REMARRIED IN YOUR OWN STATE. YOUR KANSAS MARRIAGE LICENSE IS VALID IN EVERY STATE! You won't find any language in Kansas Statute Law that mentions proxy marriage by name which may make you question its' legality. In fact, you would have to go way back to 1980 to read an opinion by an Attorney General named Robert T. Stephan written to Judge Sam K. Bruner in which he states the legality of proxy marriage. What makes proxy marriage legal in Kansas is some subtle verbiage that leaves out the requirement that the couple must appear together for the marriage; all other states spell out this stipulation. This can drive some lawyers from others states or countries insane, trying to research the process, because there just isn't anything concrete.Also, a Proxy Marriage is NOT an Internet or Zoom Marriage like the kind that you have perhaps heard about being temporarily made legal in states such as New York; they do allow Zoom marriages but the couples must appear together in all cases. You might see bad press about internet marriages conducted and then later being invalidated because of legality issues - proxy marriages are not the same thing. Proxy Marriages are for couples that can't appear together and they are ONLY legal with a Kansas marriage license (or a Montana one for military couples), so steer clear of companies trying to sell you marriage services for a situation that requires a proxy marriage, especially if your loved one is incarcerated or in a foreign country. HOWEVER, the Kansas Supreme Court does allow our proxy marriage ceremony to be conducted via ZOOM during the Covid Emergency in the event you do not feel comfortable coming into our Kansas chapel and we do conduct this ceremony using our proxy stand in at our Kansas chapel just down the street from Johnson County courthouse in Olathe, Kansas.
The process of getting a proxy marriage is fast and easy. The license is applied for and issued online so travel to the courthouse is not required. Kansas has a 3-day waiting period before the marriage license is issued. Once you have your license in hand you can travel to our chapel in Olathe, Kansas for your ceremony or you can arrange a ZOOM ceremony with us, which we conduct from our Kansas chapel. We have special permission to do our ceremonies via ZOOM from our Kansas chapel. All proxy marriages must be done in the state of Kansas and we fulfill that requirement by conducting our ceremony in our chapel with our witnesses on hand.

WHY get a proxy marriage? Get military benefits, housing and stationed with your military partner! Marry your incarcerated loved one and get the legal rights you didn't have before! Marry your fiancee who lives in another country so you can finally be together! LGBT weddings are legal in Kansas so a proxy marriage will help you if your state or country doesn't permit it! Marry a loved one who is ill/hospitalized or you are unable to get to ........ whatever your circumstance, if you are not able to be together you CAN still get married by proxy. The benefits are numerous - not only for your loved ones and yourself, but there are also benefits to the military to have their men and women supported and uplifted in marriage. The prisons will have the same effect with their inmates being loved and encouraged which gives them purpose. It also saves the prison chaplains a lot of time and being married gives the inmates' families the legal right to visitation which can only help morale and cooperation. A win/win situation for everyone. Foreign Country embassy personnel are saved a lot of paperwork when they don't have to complete an often multi-year long approval process for a marriage so who wouldn't love that? See? Win/Win!
Proxy Marriages are not right for everyone and not legal for everyone. You MUST be in a committed relationship. You must have met each other in real life and spent a decent amount of time together. You should have proof of this, (children, photos, joint financial accounts, property, etc.) Proxy Marriages are not something you can use to temporarily bring someone over from another country so they can get a green card. Criminals think they can use them for illicit purposes and sex trafficking. Scammers try to use them to convince naive people to marry them. Having an internet relationship for several years but never having met in person does NOT count - you must have physically met and spent time with this person.
