It is not common to have a magician for a wedding day.
Given the number of weddings that take place all year round and now possible on every day of the week one would have thought more magicians would be seen roaming amongst the guests.
I think it's possible that people do consider having a magician but reject it! Magicians do not always have the best reputation.
There are good and bad out there and sometimes it is hard to distinguish between the two.
As a professional magician I have watched hundreds of work and on occasions watched the most amazing performances.
However many magicians are patronizing or lack the entertainment value that goes with any performance. Some high profile magicians have made a living out of putting people down.
Understandably a magician for a wedding day, who leaves their guests uncomfortable, is not a good idea.
It is also possible that the public see magicians as loud and obtrusive and couples may worry that their whole event may be taken over by some gregarious personality.
This might not be what you want when you hire a magician for a wedding day. This does not have to be the case, some magicians have big personalities others are very refined and elegant.
It is also possible that the Bride and Groom don't understand where the magician would fit in. A string quartet is easy to place as is a band or disco but how can a magician for a wedding help enhance their guest's experience.
As it happens a magician is very flexible and the entertainment is suitable for all ages. Consequently, they make an ideal addition to other forms of entertainment on offer.
When I speak to couples about their plans for what should be one of the most memorable days of their lives I ask them what they imagine their perfect day would be like.
Once I have an understanding of what they want I can work out if I am the right magician for them.
They are looking for the perfect Magician Zürichfor a wedding day but this is very personal. I may not be right for them and if I don't think I am I can always recommend someone who is.
Magicians like all performers come in different shapes and sizes with unique personalities and performance styles. If you are looking for a magician for a wedding day take a look at a number of websites.
Watch the videos, look at the photo's and imagine them at your event. Then talk to them on the phone. I can't emphasize this enough, we have become very lazy in the digital age and many enquiries are made by email now.
However, you really can't judge a personality without speaking to them on the phone. So I suggest you pick up the phone and have a chat to see if you get on.
A good magician at your wedding will have a huge impact which your guests will talk about for years to come.
