A wedding is one of the most special days in a man and woman’s life. It should come as no surprise, then, that often large sums of money are involved to truly make it special. However, money is not always the key element in making this happen. Most people have been present at expensive weddings that were not particularly memorable, and conversely, many have attended budget weddings that were unforgettable. The key element is imagination – it takes a creative person to think outside of the box and know what will work in their theme, and what kind of thing will make the day a unique occasion for the bride, groom and guests. Adding a theatrical element to a wedding can really give the event a certain gloss and wonder, and this kind of theatrics is no better projected than through the medium of performance.
Type and Style
When deciding on a visual performer, the style of the performer is something that must blend well into the overall theme of the wedding. Luckily there are many different styles of performer – from surrealist, to circus-inspired, to romantic and expressionist – and while these terms can seem daunting or perhaps overbearing for wedding – they don’t have to be. Once they are understood, and the wedding organizers in question have witnessed some samples of these styles, the decision will become much easier.
Of course, the more elaborate the performance, the more money it will cost. Elaborate can refer to a number of things in the performance world, it can refer to prop cost and transportation, but it can come down to something as simple as how in-demand the performer is. The good news is, one does not have to spend large amounts of cash to get a unique and memorable performer for their wedding, as this is a field where performers thrive under the competition to be unique among their peers and to offer something truly special to their audience.
Booking a performer in advance is one of the first things that should be taken care of in the wedding planning process. The reason is simple – skilled performers book up quickly, especially around wedding season, and the last thing a wedding planner needs is to be put on a waiting list. For example, in recent times, old-style circus performers have been extremely popular for weddings and have been in high demand – unfortunately many people aren’t completely aware that this is the case and don’t prepare far enough in advance. Be sure to research, call and make appointments.
Booking a visual performer for the big day is a nice touch that nobody in attendance will forget. The wedding planner will often spend huge amounts of money trying to put a high-end movie-like finish to their wedding aesthetic and it doesn’t work because of budget constraints or a lack of creative focus. However, with visual performers, the majestic theatrics of a skilled performance will always wow the guests and make them feel like they are truly at an event to remember.
