are there any children attending the wedding?  I think its a good Idea for an afternoon ceremony.  Maybe you could play some lawn games assuming this is outdoors

@butterfli_beauty:  Unless you’re having a carnival themed wedding that would lend itself to that, I’d consider some other entertainment options.

@Cappugcino:  Agreed. 

A magician just doesn’t fit in with the wedding theme.  I think it sounds a little weird, unless carnival/country fair is your theme

I think this would be cheesy :-/ Maybe add a poll to this post.

I’m not down with the magician and would find it extremely odd at a wedding unless the couple was totally into magic or there was a carnival theme.  I understand wanting to entertain guests, but honestly, it’s a wedding not a kids birthday party.  Maybe you could put together some fun games of sorts, or just have a little dance floor or something.

I think it’s a pretty fun idea, if that is what you are going for (for formal, I guess not), but I’d definitely have mor stuff as well.  What’s the tone of your reception?

TBH, I think it’s a little too “kids birthday party” to have a magician at your wedding.  What about having some other type of entertainment that fits more with your theme.  Like  jessiesdream  suggested, lawn games would be fun.

I think the children would absolutley love it.  If it is not a formal wedding I think this is a fun idea.

Hi I think magician is a great idea. This Guy performed at my frinds wedding in Chigwell over a year ago. Best  I had ever seen. Really added something to the wedding the crowd went nuts, he is not a tacky child entertainer kind of magician, he is kind of uber cool and soft spoken. I saw him recently at a club in the west end called cique du soir.  I kept his card his email is [email protected]. Can’t remeber what agency he is with
