It’s the biggest day of your life and an occasion your guests will never forget. Your wedding is a magical event for you, so why not spread that feeling to those in attendance? Make the big day even more magical with a wedding magician! This type of entertainment is perfect for the reception, keeping guests intrigued and amazed while you’re busy being the star of the show. With wedding season right around the corner, here are a few ways a magician can enhance the event:
• A magician acts as an icebreaker for your guests. Remember, not all your guests know each other. Illusions and magic tricks are a great way for people to bond over the incredible feats and foster discussions over what they’ve just witnessed together.
• The magician provides entertainment while you’re doing your thing. You can’t constantly entertain guests at your wedding as you’ll be busy taking photos, touching up and spending time with your new spouse! A wedding magician can entertain guests while they’re waiting for the meal, sipping cocktails or waiting for the next activity. When everyone is settled, the magician can even do a short centralized illusion show, which can include the bride and groom.
• It makes your wedding unique. Your big day says a lot about you as a party planner, and having a magician makes it stand out from all the rest as something your guests will keep talking about long after the event.
When considering a wedding magician, don’t skimp out on the budget. A good entertainer will cost anywhere from $500 - $1,500 depending on the number of guests, and length and type of performance requested. Question what will be more important to your event—custom napkins or creative entertainment? Use your budget wisely! Hire a magician who dresses the part and fits in (avoid top hats and balloon animals). Wedding planning is a lot of work, but hiring a wedding magician will keep your guests occupied on the big day so you have nothing to worry about while enjoying your magical day!
