At Indian weddings, it’s increasingly rare to see a magician these days. Many of the best ones can cost upwards of £400 and these days it’s more fashionable to have a Photo Booth so your guests can take away a photo as a memento and the happy couple can also share those memories. The best ones are “Magic Circle” magicians who have to pass exams
If you have the money for a magician here is some of the ways you can use them.
- When guests are in a queue for food, this is a great time for a magician to entertain the crowd. It will make time go quicker for those guests, and let your wedding toastmaster co-ordinate with he magician where to go
- A magician can bring different groups together. For example at a reception he/she can bring different generations together to do a trick, or grab two different groups of friends
- Use a magician to make your guests be where they want to be. If you know it will be a struggle to get people to sit down for the wedding reception – instruct your magician to only do magic to people seated at their tables, or usher people to their seats while doing a trick.
- Magicians are a great way to wow the older generation at weddings. They will likely be the most impressed by tricks and talk about them afterwards!
- Encourage the magician to take photos and make sure your photographer captures the moments of people experiencing the magic
