5 reasons to Hire a Magician for a wedding
Why book a magician for a wedding? Most guests at corporate and private functions remember the entertainment more often than the food! Brides and Grooms want their special day to be perfect and often good entertainment is overlooked. Most people see a magician live less than three times in their lifetime so considering having a magician for a wedding is certainly worth some thought.
SO WHY SHOULD YOU CONSIDER A MAGICIAN FOR A WEDDING?
1 It is unusual – Although magic and magicians have a high profile it is not standard wedding entertainment. Singers, harpists, string quartets are all common place at a wedding but magicians add a novelty which will surprise and inspire your guests.
2 It is interactive – Most forms of entertainment commonly found at a wedding are not interactive, if you hire a magician for a wedding they will involve your guests in the magic and change the mood making everyone relax and enjoy the day.
3 It is adaptable – Magicians can be used at different times and locations. This means you can plan your day to perfection. For example they can mingle with your guests during the reception or perform at tables during the wedding breakfast. You could consider a cabaret for everyone after the meal or magic in the bar during the evening reception when other guests arrive.
4 It breaks the ice – Although weddings are commonly family affairs it is not unusual for people to be meeting for the first time and this can be difficult for those who are shy. A magician for a wedding can interact with the guests lightening the mood and giving them something to talk about.
5 It can be fun as well as mystifying – Magic is by its nature puzzling but a good magician is also entertaining, this will have an impact on your guests making them remember your special day with fondness.
When finding a magician for your wedding there are many factors you should consider but most of all you should pick the magician which you think will fit your event best. This is a very personal matter, so look through the websites and video clips and imagine them at your event. Then ask yourself which one would work best for you?
When it comes to cost it is very easy to get drawn into finding the best fee. However to some extent you get what you pay for and given the overall cost of the wedding my advice is don’t be too cost dependent. Go for the magician who you think best suits your event and the one you think your guests will enjoy most.
