The person signing your KS license must be licensed to marry you by the state of Kansas.  Generally, that person must conduct the wedding in the state of Kansas.  

From what I’ve heard, Mexico actually has some restrictions on foreign marriages.  Have you looked into those to make sure you can get married there?  Or are you having a symbolic ceremony in Mexico and legally getting married in Kansas?

I would assume any legitimate officiant is going to sign and date whatever day the ceremony is held (which would be the date of your Kansas ceremony).  These are legal documents and falsifying them could be cause to revoke their right to marry couples.

I’m not a lawyer, nor do I live in Kansas, but I’d be willing to bet your officiant won’t willingly and knowingly falsify government records.

 You don’t technically need an officiant in Kansas. You can “mutually declare,” though I think it still requires witnesses. https://theamm.org/marriage-laws/kansas/ see C in the first box. You can probably find the language on your county’s court website. You have 10 days from when it’s dated to return it to the court.
