A Few Words About Us...
The first question we are asked is "Why are your prices so low 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 incarcerated, in another state, 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. Usually 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, 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 but you will find on the Kansas Judicial Branch Frequently Asked Questions the legality of proxy marriages HERE.
Also, a Kansas 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.
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. The courthouse will email the license to you. If you are not able to get email the courthouse will mail the marriage license to your home. Ceremony is conducted in our Olathe, Kansas chapel.
WHY get a proxy marriage? Marry your incarcerated loved one and get the legal rights you didn't have before! 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 prisons with their inmates being loved and encouraged, giving them support and 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!
Proxy Marriages are not right for everyone and not legal for everyone.
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. You can't marry someone to avoid testifying against them. We don't do proxy marriages when one party is in a foreign country and the other party is incarcerated or if both parties are incarcerated.
We have included everything you need to know about the proxy marriage process right here on our website which will save you hours of research. We keep current with the law, contact the courts and meet with immigration lawyers to provide the most updated information we can find. However, our information on this website is not legal advice.
If you have any questions about your situation you need to contact an attorney!
We guide you from start to finish. We do not work with third parties or pay for referrals.
