Eh? I think of magicians and children. But if it makes sense for you and your SO (like you met at a magic event or there’s some other connection)…

No. To me that’s like having clowns and pony rides!

A fortune teller might be kind of cool. And a little more adult.

I wouldn’t personally enjoy a magician. Do you have any other ideas? We are having a blackjack  table,what about something like that? Or live musicians?

I love when people add a little entertainment to their weddings. I went to a ‘christmas themed’ wedding in december and they had christmas carolers in an alcove as you walked in. it was AWESOME! I personally love magicians, but i do agree that it can be associated with a childrens party.

What is your wedding going to be like? maybe we can help with more ideas.

Maybe you could hire a caricaturist to draw pics of your guests?

or a video message spot. Have camera on tripod and each guest takes the hotseat to congratulate the bride and groom.

an acoustic guitar duo would be neat

Karaoke?

I saw somewhere that you can hire an artist to paint your wedding as it is happening….so you end up with a bunch of hand paintings of different scenes from your wedding, I love this idea but we already have so much going on it would have been over the top, but I am still kind of sad I can’t have it 🙁

I say it might depend on the magician.

I worked for a magic shop once, and I’d love to have that shop’s magician show up at my wedding. Some magicians have routines and shows for adults, too!

@totheislnds:  I was thinking that it would be fun too, because I bet a lot of people would want romantic predictions that are wedding inspired. “When will I get married, will he propose, how many kids, etc.”
