How To Choose The Right Magician For Your Wedding

How To Choose The Right Magician For Your Wedding

You want your big day to be memorable for your family and friends and one potentially good way to ensure that’s the case is to hire a quality professional wedding magician.

But how can you be sure you’re choosing the right magician for your wedding day? How do you pick someone who will make your guests gasp in wonder rather than horror? How can you be sure the magician you’ve chosen won’t turn the air blue with rude jokes and smutty asides? How can you ensure your magician looks the part on the day?

Answer: By using the following tips, which are designed to help you choose the magician that best fits your wishes for your celebrations.

1. Look For A Magician With Experience

Make sure the magician you choose has had plenty of experience of performing at weddings. It means he or she is more likely to have the ability and skills to hold an audience.

2. Read The Magician’s Testimonials and Reviews

The right magician will have outstanding testimonials/reviews from many other happy couples. In addition, he or she will be more than willing to put you in contact with previous clients.

3. Watch The Magician’s Photos or Videos

You should be able to see photos and/or videos of the magician on his or her website. Look at how he or she interacts with members of the audience. How do they react to the magician’s performance? Do people look entertained and intrigued, or bored or even embarrassed?

4. Find Out What Kind Of Magic The Magician Performs

Does the magician perform where and when you want him or her to? i.e. in the drinks reception, around the tables during the wedding breakfast or after the meal when some people are dancing but others are at a loose end. Does he or she perform with a variety of props or just cards? Is this what you want?

Does your magician perform for children as well as adults, could he or she look after the children during the speeches? Does this appeal to you?

5. Check The Magician Is A Member Of The Magic Circle

A magician who is a member of The Magic Circle, the world’s premier magical society, has had to be nominated by two current members and then pass an examination (perform magic) in front of the society’s examiners as well as other members. An Associate or Member of The Inner Magic Circle has passed a more rigorous test of his or her magic skills, so you can be sure a magician at this level is likely to be much more capable. Best of all the society’s highest degree is Member of The Inner Magic Circle with Gold Star.

6. Does The Magician Offer A Comprehensive Guarantee?

For complete peace of mind, look for a magician who is so confident of his or her ability to engage and entertain your audience that he or she offers a guarantee of satisfaction or you don’t have to pay.

7. Easy Payment Terms Makes Your Life Easier

Very few happy couples have an unlimited budget, so if your magician offers Easy Payment Terms so you can spread the cost of your magician over a few months, after your big day, can make things so much easier and more affordable.
