    No, not tacky but def different! I think it might be pretty childish, so if there will be lots of kids at your wedding they would really enjoy it! (and adults who like to have fun)

    If it was a good magic Show, where everyone watched him at the same time, say during dinner, i would go for it, there are a bunch of magic comics that are pretty entertaining, but to go table to table? It makes me think of a kids birthday party…

    I went to a wedding with a magician once and the consensus at my table was “what the f*ck, this is not a childs birthday party”.

    @ticatica: Okay when I read the title and thought of a magician walking around, I giggled. However, it could be fun! I guess it depends on the crowd, and also the kind of magician. If it’s a clown with a red nose doing silly magic tricks, then ehhh. But if it’s an adult doing cool stuff, it could be interesting!

    @LGenz: LOL!

    @imalittlebirdie: See, I think opposite. Idk that I’d want to sit and watch a random magic show for 20 minutes.. I’d rather be dancing or watching the bride toss her boquet, etc. If a magician came to my table and did a few tricks though, I could tolerate it for 2 minutes. Also that way if a table wasn’t into it, the magician could pass over them and move on to a table that enjoyed it

    That’s so funny, I was just at a wedding with a magician for the first time last week.  It was actually fun and a good time filler.  But it was an Egyptian/muslim wedding, so the whole thing was a little different than what our table was used to.  I think it depends on your wedding and whether it will be a little less traditional / quirky in other ways, too.

    @ticatica: It could be that he wasn’t the most talented magician ever.

    @ticatica: the cheese factor depends on you it is excecuted. I.e. IS he wearing a cape? lol! Just remember, most FIs don’t ask for much during the wedding.. if your Fiance really wants it I think you should do it! And its things like these that become the norm when people realize they really love it!

    I think a good general rule of thumb with most things is:  if you have to ask, you already know the answer.  😉

     

    And in this case, I think you already know the answer.  Unless you two are like SUPER into magic, I don’t think it has a place at a wedding.
