And why do some cost more than others?
I get asked an awful lot about prices… “How much do you charge?” And following my reply, the response can very varied.
The fees of professional magicians vary greatly but if you understand the reasons for this, it will make your decision to book the right magician a lot easier.
When you pay for a professional entertainer to come to your wedding or event, you are not just paying for them to wandering around doing card tricks for a few hours. The best magicians understand that the key to success at any event is to use the magic they perform as a means to create a MEMORABLE and SUCCESSFUL event for all involved.
For example, how many weddings have you been to when for years to come after the big day, people still talk about and reminisce about how wonderful the flowers were or how much they enjoyed their fillet of beef? Probably not that often!
BUT…if you meet someone that has been to a wedding where there was a good magician then it is likely that even several years after they will still be talking about the entertainment!
So for your event to have a memorable and entertaining atmosphere, make sure you book someone that knows how to do this inside out. Call and chat to them prior to booking, ask questions or even arrange an informal meeting to discuss in person. After all, the investment you make in a professional entertainer is going to be a big decision and as already mentioned, the right decision means guaranteed success all round.
