1. Consider the style of magic
First and foremost, think about the type of magic that you envision for your wedding. Do you want a close-up magician who can mingle with guests during the drinks reception? Or are you looking for a stage magician who can perform a grand illusion for all to see? Knowing the type of magic you want will narrow down your search and help you find the perfect fit.

2. Check out their reviews
Before booking a magician, be sure to do your research. Look for reviews from past clients and check out their online portfolios. This will give you a good idea of the magician's style and level of skill. A quick online search should give you a good idea of the magician’s experience.
3. Consider their personality
A magician's personality can make or break their performance. You want someone who is personable and can connect with your guests. A magician with a great sense of humour and the ability to improvise is a huge plus. If you meet the magician in person, pay attention to their communication skills and how they make you feel.

4. Look at their performance packages
When it comes to booking a magician, packages can vary. Some magicians offer a basic package that includes close-up magic during the drinks reception. Others may offer a more comprehensive package that includes an exclusive performance for you and your partner. Be sure to understand what is included in the package and if it fits within your budget.
5. Book early
Popular magicians can book up quickly, so it's important to book early. This will ensure that you have your first choice of magician and that they will be available on your wedding day. Plus, booking early gives you peace of mind and one less thing to worry about as your big day approaches.
Choosing the right magician for your wedding can add an extra touch of magic to your special day.
