Avoid Hiring A Cheap Wedding Magician | Slightly Unusual Magicians For Weddings 2021

Hiring magicians for weddings is one of the best decisions you can make for your special day. If there's one thing we learned from our experience in lockdown is just how important the arts & entertainment industry is. Entertainers are there to bring amusement & refreshment to your event. More and more Brides are securing their wedding magician early. The Bridal Magazine once conducted a survey to say 78% of Brides had wished they had spent more money on their entertainment.


Avoid Hiring A Cheap Wedding Magician | Slightly Unusual Magicians For Weddings 2021


It goes without saying there are hundreds of entertainers out there that advertise themselves as wedding specialists. Their prices range from hundreds to thousands of pounds. Of course you're going to immediately want the cheapest option available, asking yourself why book an expensive magician when there is another act prepared to do the same thing for less cost? The answer is simple: they are not within the same quality as professional entertainers. Today we're going to break down why it's a better idea to avoid hiring cheap magicians for weddings.


They Deliver Poor Quality


The big & most obvious reason to avoid cheap entertainment is simply for the fact they're no good. Everyone's heard the saying, "You get what you paid for." It couldn't be more true. The last thing you want is a poor entertainer leaving a bad impression on your special day. It's your wedding and you want everything to be perfect. You shouldn't have to feel embraced over the entertainment. It won't just ruin your day either, there will be guests at your wedding teasing you years later because the entertainment was so poor.


They Might Not Attend


Have you ever heard of the horror stories of entertainers not showing up on the day of the show? In our central office we are frequently contacted by clients who have been let down by another entertainment company. Most of the time they are cheap entertainment who clearly don't have passion for performing. In some cases they received a better paying gig. It happens way too often, unfortunately. Professional magicians ask for a deposit upon booking, giving you protection from cancellation.


No Respect For Guests


Part of the reason magicians are so popular is because of their ability to make everyone laugh while leaving them impressed with their incredible close up magic skills. Cheaper magicians don't have that same charisma you would be expecting to find. As a result they don't know how to read your guests and create the right reactions. It might even get to a point where they try to come off as funny and end up insulting everyone instead. There have been incidents where the entertainment got drunk instead of doing their job. On some occasions there have been fights as well. That's the last thing anyone wants to happen.


Not Legally Compliant


There's certain documentation a wedding magician needs to bring. They need Public Liability Insurance and because of recent times, you might even be asked to prove you are a COVID Secure company. Most venues will insist on entertainers providing these documents to protect yourself and your guests against accidents. If there is electronic equipment they need to bring with them, it should be PAT tested. Professional & experienced entertainers will have all the necessary documentation ready. Cheaper entertainers won't have these documentaries with them.


Remember To Book The Best


The fact of the matter is hiring low quality magicians to your wedding is never a viable idea. It can cost you a lot in the long run, and that's not just in money. The good news is you never have to be concerned about poor entertainment with Slightly Unusual. Our magicians are the best of the best. Most importantly we have never let anyone down.
