Congratulations! You’re getting married! Now what? There is so much to think about. You need a venue, caterer, DJ, cake – and this does not include the mountain of things you need to arrange ahead of time.
There is one highly effective, yet overlooked service that will help make your special day even more special and relieve you of stress. You guessed it – a magician!
Before I go any further, I just wanted to say this is not a sales pitch. I genuinely believe hiring a magician or some other form of entertainment will help relieve stress and create a memorable experience.
Here are 3 reasons you may want to consider hiring a magician for your wedding:
1) The Perfect Icebreaker
Your two families will likely be meeting for the first time. Getting them to interact could be a nightmare! You might even feel obligated to strike up a conversation just to get them talking. You don’t need that headache.
Magicians are great conversation starters. They will get the families interacting. There are a lot of awesome magic tricks that can be done right at their tables with the specific intention of breaking the ice.
2) Enjoy Your Picture Time
I worked as a photographer earlier on in career. I got to assist at many weddings and shoot a few myself.
Photos of the bride and groom typically take place right after the ceremony, during cocktail hour, before the reception. You may feel rushed because you don’t want your guests waiting for you with nothing to do.
Photos are probably the 3rd most important element in a wedding next to the cake and the dress. You paid a lot of money for the photographer. You DO NOT want to rush through the photos. They are the memories you will share forever!
Take your time with the photographer while the magician entertains your guests. They will feel as if the time flew by and you will get fabulous pictures!
3) Cake Time
Imagine it’s cake time in all of your guests are spread out across the venue. Trying to get them back in their seats will be like herding cats.
You can solve this problem easily by having the magician perform a 15 minute set right before cake time. The magician will go around the room, gathering everyone for the show, which will happen to take place right in front of the cake. As soon as the magician finishes their set, they will hand the floor over to either you or your wedding planner.
There are a few other smart reasons to have a magician at your wedding, which you can read about under the “Shows” tab of my website.
Whether it is a magician or another form of entertainment, you will be doing yourself a favor by having them at your wedding. It will be worth every penny to see your families laughing with each other while you and your partner enjoy a stress free experience.
