Definitely, I can give bitcoin as a wedding gift if the person is a bitcoin user.

It doesnt matter if they are aware of Bitcoin or not, it will be a cool way to promote and introduce any crypto currency. I have given some of my waves to my friend on his birthday and he was quite happy to know about it.

Plus, imagine if someone gave you something on your wedding day that pretty much constantly went up in value! Money just gets spent, but if you give someone BTC they could feasibly retire off of it. That's a pretty good wedding present.

Yes, why not ? In fact giving Bitcoin as a wedding gift is an awesome idea to spread the word even more about Bitcoin, and let other people, families know more about it and starting using and trading it.
And we have to remember that Bitcoin is money, so giving it as gift is just like giving other currencies.

I think the bitcoin is very secure, it depends on how you keep your bitcoins because there are so many wallets for bitcoin like wallets online and cold or you own private keys

I would give bitcoin to a person who is familiar with cryptocurrencies. "Normies" may throw away paper wallet and be mad at me because I didn't give them any real money. Of course you can teach them but I think newlyweds would be busy with themselves.

I myself would have refused such a gift, but most of my friends don't want to meet bitcoin. They do not perceive what cannot be touched. I think that for them such a gift will have no value. It will still be that monkey to give the microwave.

If the recipient understand about it then why not? it's only a problem if the receiver don't understand it and can't use it. A wedding gift is something that  memorable and bitcoin can be one of that. It's the same as giving them gold as a wedding gift, but this one value can increase more.

Some tech-savvy wedding-goers are gifting the digital currency to new couples. Honeyfund, a honeymoon registry that allows guests to give cash rather than gifts, has seen more than a dozen customers donate in bitcoin, said chief executive officer and co-founder Sara Margulis. In recent years, more than a dozen customers have chosen to route donations to the site from bitcoin wallets. Zola, a wedding registry website, has had just two cash funds created for bitcoins since 2013, a spokeswoman said. "I would expect it to pop more as millennials come into the wedding age,” Honeyfund’s Margulis said. “It’s something you will do if your friends and family are already into bitcoin.

Bitcoin as an retirement plan, bitcoin to secure the future of your kids, and now bitcoin as a wedding gift. Whether or not bitcoin replaces cash in future, it looks like the trend of gifting bitcoin instead of cash at weddings is definitely going to catch up and more wedding registeries would be adding bitcoin as a gifting option.

Quote
Avoid using a wedding gift "as an opportunity to proselytize a technology you personally believe in, but the recipient could not care less about."

People who are not into bitcoin might not appreciate getting a volatile currency as a gift, and might never use it, thus adding it to the list of lost coins, but I think people who are already using bitcoin or would most probably use it in future then bitcoin instead of cash is the apt wedding gift for them.

This idea is very interesting, but I do not think anyone would choose bitcoin as a wedding gift. If necessary they will give a more practical gift!

Why they need to understand what is your gift. If they doesn't understand they will call you and ask about the gift specification to you. If explain the feature of bitcoin and it's usages means they will get into bitcoin and start. These kind activity will ensure the adoption in future.

Haven't thought of it, but that is a great idea Grin But if the receiver is not aware of Bitcoin its of no use.
It can be great to make new peoples aware of Bitcoins who likes to learn new things. Gifting it will encourage them to know more.

Another nice thing about giving btc versus giving a toaster or set of plates is that you are guiding the new couple to a thing that can actually help them in their financial future.

By giving them btc, they will need to learn about btc to spend/save it, and you know what they say about teaching someone to fish.
Well for me, I will just huy another set of plates or glasses or bed sheets because my bitcoin is very precious to me. I would just find time to reach them how to earn bitcoin rather than just giving it to them so that they will have their own bitcoin too and teach their soon to be kids.
A very nice idea indeed! This way, the couple will not only get awareness of new technology but help for lifetime. This is the best way to show them your love, care and best wishes. Also, this gift value keeps on enlarging. It is generous of you but in my case I am a miser. I will like to give an introduction of bitcoins. : P

I would say No, i would not give bitcoin as wedding gift simply because its going to be a hassle for the newly weds. What if they are not interested in bitcoin? I think its better to give them cash instead or other things that would make their life easier to began their journey in life.

And its not normal to give this as well. Usually gifts was material things or even cash, if you give them bitcoin then they will have to exchange it to fiat so why give them fiat instead. I know its gonna be a unique gift but its not very practical to them.
