What do people crave at the most important moment of their lives?
Is it really about knowing the future?
It’s not about the future: it’s about the here and now. Why do brides suddenly all want fortune tellers? Maybe because we all want to know what’s going to happen next–maybe because it is the comfort and connection we feel when someone takes the time to recognize us and the gifts we bring. Personalized and meaningful entertainment is becoming more and more popular. We’re seeing an unprecedented increase in the number of brides who really want to have something different for all things weddings: fortune tellers, palm readings, handwriting analysis, Tarot readings, coffee cup readings, lip print analysis–even acrobats, jugglers, and magicians! All of these quirky, old-fashioned forms of entertainment are making a huge comeback. People are hungering to do something different, but most importantly, they want to do something meaningful.
It’s because we are all starved for connection. The hunger is real. We want to connect in a meaningful way. People feel a sense of alienation and isolation that comes from living in a pandemic. Along with brides, planners are desperately looking for different ways to connect people.
What kind of wedding events use fortune tellers?
Think about it–how can you create a bridal shower, rehearsal dinner, or wedding reception that helps your guests connect in a meaningful and compelling way?
Easy! Use the opportunity to bring people together so they can get to know each other, exchange ideas, talk about what matters to them. A fortune teller, reader, psychic, analyst–whatever you call it–the most important part is the integrity of the performers. Second to that is their ability to match their production values to the overall ambience of your event. Whether formal, breezy, quirky, subdued, or surprising, decor adds an extra dimension to any event. Think of it as the difference between inviting guests to a home that is fully furnished versus one that is empty 😊.
There is a huge surge in requests for interactive entertainment for everything family-oriented. These are events where people can bond with each other, find a precious moment to share something unique and personal. Sometimes it’s the first time people have met. Sometimes, it’s been far too long since they’ve seen each other.
We want to meet other people. How can we have personal connection and be ‘seen’? It can be difficult to start a conversation with someone you meet for the first time or someone you haven’t seen for a while. That’s our time to shine. People watch and listen, rev up their courage, are curious—and want to know about themselves and that other person!
Don’t lose this opportunity to connect more deeply with your loved ones and have fun at the same time!
