I have a close friends wedding coming up and need to come up with a good trick to perform for the bride and groom. I know a version of the anniversary waltz. My problem is that I really want something that will be just as romantic, but that will play bigger, with some possible humor but ultimately end in romantic way. Any ideas?

Thanks guys

Split deck, or comedy split deck is the first thing that comes to mind. If you could pry her new ring off her finger, you could also have fun with a "safe" version of ring flight. I recommend the Porper/Biro version. I've done it with a Super Bowl ring.

How about Anniversary Waltz, only play it up bigger and add some humor? A trick is just a trick. It's all about presentation. I'm not trying to be glib. Think about it.

I tried to come up with a solution for this as well a couple of years ago. I came up with something really awesome, actually. If you like sponge balls, I did a routine where I "melted" two initialed red sponge balls together (one for each the bride and groom) into a bigger sponge heart. You'll have to make the sponge heart from a 5 inch red sponge ball. I performed for the group last year again and they still say they have the heart, it played really well.

I hope you don't mind the inquiry but I must ask, have you been requested by the bride and groom to perform something or is this just something that you've decided you want to do? The reason I ask is that weddings are tremendously sensitive occasions. In many cases, the bride dreams of that perfect wedding and spends a ton of money making it just right. In other words, it's their day.

If you have not been specifically asked to perform by both the bride and groom, be very careful not to overstep your bounds as an invited guest. If this is going to be a special surprise, at least make sure it's approved by the rest of the wedding party well in advance and ensure that the emcee has ample opportunity to fit it into his schedule of events for that evening.

I apologize if I come across as "preachy" but I've actually been at weddings where a well-intentioned relative or friends almost ruined the entire evening will silly antics. Ever since, I've always refrained from performing at weddings unless I'm specifically asked/hired to so; and even then, I ensure that everything in the show spotlights the bride and groom as much as possible.

Kent,

good point, but yes I have been asked to perform. I have already performed the Anniversary Waltz for the brides parents. The problem is that they don't mind something small like sponge balls, but they would prefer something bigger. Any other ideas? Anyone?

I would suggest a production of a champaign bottle and glasses from three silks. See it here http://www.morrisseymagic.com/stage7.htm If your patter is in the context of making a toast. Come up with something that each color represents for the couple, and then end with the kicker bottle of champaign to represent fun and laughter. This is larger and has a romantic wedding feel. It is also easy with a decent price.

I've always liked the bottle production from silks. You can use the different colored silks to weave a story about the bride and groom and then end off by producing the bottle. You can even go so far as to provide them with a magical toast with the floating glass effect. Just a thought.

Deans Box has two ropes and a ring that joins the two. Watch Dean perform it and it may fit in with good patter.

For my occasions that have a Christian flair I use the anniversary waltze with a scrip talking about Gen. 2:24 of which the two become one flesh and have them lift their hands apart.

Cardiographic by Martin Lewis: force the queen of hearts and write something romantic with their names instead of just signing. They'll keep it framed for years (until they divorce actually, but their kids will pick it up).

The Bottle production sounds great, as does the Cardiographic routine keep them coming guys this is turning into a great thread for wedding tricks.


Thanks

I have an excellent wedding routine; however, if you want it, you will have to get a copy of my Renaissance festival lecture notes. I perform weddings, and this is actually a part of my ceremony. Since I currently use it for gainful employment, I'm somewhat reluctant to turn loose of it without compensation.

The notes have a complete list of necessary props, plus the scripting.

I should also have mentioned R. Paul Wilson: Extreme Possibilities - Volume 2; Thief Of Hearts which is Paul’s Valentine card trick, the ideal effect for couples.
