I don't think there's anything wrong with doing this.  Also it helps spread out our cause.  Long ago some were giving BTC away for all kinds of things. Got less common now.

We already have people giving away vouchers as wedding gift, why should BTC be viewed differently? Anyway to answer the question, personally I wouldn't unless Bitcoin is considered as mainstream by then.

I've given BTC as a wedding gift multiple times.

I print out a paper wallet and provide instructions on how to redeem the private key including which apps to download etc.

I don't really care whether or not the bride/groom become "Bitcoiners" - I just think of it as a cool gift that beats the hell out of a blender or some silverware.

If you give 1 bitcoin for the newly wed couple and the groom is secretly been gambling to primedice already - for sure the groom will say that it is just nothing and then secretly use it to gamble after their honeymoon Cheesy

Yes ,,, if our friend the same understand what bitcoin is and understand how to use bitcoin. Seems to be a rare gift in the wedding

But if our friend does not understand what bitcoin is and how to use it, it seems like it would be useless to give it.

Yeah , agree with you
If your friend does not know what is bitcoin and how to use it, so that,s gift is not  useful for him or her. So gift bitcoin as a person who know what is bitcoin. I have a little idea about bitcoin. But unfortunately i can,t gift anyone .Because i have a little .When i have a huge number of bitcoin i must gift my best friend.

There's a lot of wedding gifts that we can give to our friends.
I think giving them bitcoin as gift is not a good idea, I'd rather give them material things that they can use for starting a family. I treat bitcoin as cash and I don't give cash. I want something that if they see that thing they will remember me. And if i'll give cash I'm not sure where they'll use it especially when they're into gambling.

Interesting question.  I wouldn't only because:
1. My friends and family are not involved in cryptocurrency;
2. I'm afraid they would lose it;
3. It would seem weird giving someone .045 BTC as a wedding gift because of the decimal placement.

Good idea.
But of course someone who will be rewarded with bitcoin also has access to it. Do not be a waste that can not be utilized.

Why bitcoin? I think bitcoin as a wedding gift is not a good idea because if the one who is receiving the gift is not interested in bitcoin i think it will just go to waste if you give a bitcoin, do you think it can help him? there's a lot of things to gift as a wedding gift besides bitcoin you can give money so they can use it in their financial needs or just give things that can help them.

I will give bitcoin as a wedding gift, because this is the important and valuable things that we give. Because bitcoin has profitable and big help to our needs. I believe they will also interested and invest in bitcoin when they know that i already invest. Bitcoin is for their future and to their children someday. I give bitcoin because bitcoin become most familiar,popular and have a future, it become a currency in all country.

I imagine giving them a ledger /trezor or paper wallet with bitcoin in it, this will only be understood by bitcoin users but I am sure they will feel the encouragement from the community support and very good friends, this is a good thread and I am instantly inspired because my friend will get married soon

This is a very unique idea and also new I heard. Just imagine when a bride gets bitcoin then they will surely find that confusing. Maybe that does not apply to those who already know bitcoin, but still people who know bitcoin also would be surprised and did not think with the prize he got.
Yes it will make them feel confused, because bitcoin is not widely known by many people. If the bride knows about bitcoin, then they will be surprised to see his wedding gift because people rarely do such a thing. But very unique if there is a gift wedding from bitcoin.

I just heard about this,
Previously I never thought to do that, because I only have a little part of 1 bitcoin. Maybe I will do that when I already have some.

For me it would depend on whether the couple already knows about bitcoin or not because I won't turn their wedding gift into a lecture about the value of bitcoin.

yesss.
free when they aren't know about bitcoin. and more people dont know about bitcoin, so just give in normal gift.

I think this is a wonderful gift that in time can still multiply, and not just be stored somewhere in the house and remind about the wedding. Newlyweds will be happy with such a valuable gift.

If we give newly wed bitcoin as a gift and that they are not that familiar with the bitcoin industry, we should send them a message right after their honeymoon to safeguard their bitcoin wallet password like safeguarding jewelries on a jewelry box.

For a bitcoin wedding gift for now is rather difficult, especially in my area that is still difficult to reach the internet network, but didn't rule out a time if bitcoin already known to the public and familiar to its use, seems can be provide a gift of bitcoin marriage.  Grin
I think it is good for you that there is an internet problem in your area. Your bitcoins are saved for the time being. I would like to receive bitcoins as my wedding gift but to give it away to someone else, no way. :p
However, I can think of it if the person who is getting married is my buddy. In that case, I will be truly generous.

I would give bitcoin as a gift if the one getting married is one of my kids, it would help them a lot in starting a family and will also give them sense of financial security, knowing they have bitcoin in their house. The next question i think is how many, for me when that time comes, i am certain that its value is already high or has reached its peak, i would just give .5btc, simce he needs to earn the other half, i know he can do it since he my kid. Giving bitcoin as a give to others or someone, as of now, if they don't realize what the future will behold for bitcoin, they will never appreciate i t, but if you give it someone who undwrstans what bitcoin is, will thank you for life, since what you are giving to them will become their fortune in the future. I think we also need to consider to whom we are giving away our bitcoins to.

It depends on who I'm giving it to. If I know the couple is using bitcoin themselves, I might gift them bitcoin. But that is only if I want to give them money, most liekly I want to give them physical items, but I mean, it would be awesome giving them a paper wallet or something with bitcoins.

who cares
