Although weddings themselves are magical events, having a magician perform at the reception is a great way to add an extra touch to any wedding celebration. In most cases, the magician or magicians perform close-up magic for guests at times when the bride and groom are busy with other activities. Sometimes the rehearsal dinner or even the reception may include a stand up or stage magic show.
What are some reasons to add wedding magic?
First, magic is unique and memorable and sets your event apart from all the others. Although popular in Europe and among celebrities, magic is seldom seen at weddings in the United States. Because of this fact, those who provide magic for their guests are seen as a trend-setter by providing something that few others are doing. Secondly, magic entertains your guests during wait times. Even the best planned wedding usually involves times when the bride and groom are occupied taking photographs or traveling between venues. You will have peace of mind knowing that your guests are occupied so you can enjoy the day.
Third, magic is a great ice breaker. Sometimes your guests know few other people at the reception. Often family members are meeting each other for the first time. Magic can bring people together and allow guests to begin to interact with each other around a common experience.
Forth, magic is enjoyed by all ages. Usually wedding guests range in age from children to older adults. Unlike some styles of entertainment, magic can be enjoyed by everyone regardless of their ages or backgrounds. Finally, wedding magic is affordable. Considering the costs associated with planning a wedding, adding magic does not significantly impact the budget.
