Well, this depends on how much bitcoin i have. If i have more than enough bitcoin which gives me the luxury to give some of it away, then yes, i definitely will give bitcoin as a wedding gift. This will not only help the couple financially but it can also be an investment for them as well.

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.

No, not yet. Because people haven't got used to crypto yet. But as I know bitcoin was a wedding gift on some Turkish wedding not far ago.

Interesting, I think you are the first one who gives this one idea and I think it will be the biggest gift for someone instead of gold or jewelry.
But this may only happen in Europe or USA but not in Asian culture. Asians are preferred Gold as a gift rather than others.

Anyway, great idea, Have a nice day.

maybe if the one you giving a gift knows how to use bitcoin, bitcoin is just a digitalized currency so it is just like you are giving an actual money to wedding couple. Though it is better to gift a fiat since it is fix in value, gifting bitcoin will loss your potential gains in the future.

 Cheesy if that's all it seems I'm going to make Bitcoin my wedding present, because it looks like in the future Bitcoin will have the confession, and it will be more and more interested. Grin

Bitcoin as a wedding gift is alright as long as the person who receive it know what it is and how to use it. I mean it's not different than giving money as a gift. If someone to give me bitcoin as a wedding gift I'll gladly accept it.

I probably wouldn't give it unless I felt the bride and groom were into that sort of thing or innovative and progressive enough to have an open mind to it.  It's pretty great that this is happening now though.

I just imagine what someone who doesn't understand it now could be like in 5-10 years like, "Hey can you believe that $200 he sent us in bitcoin bought us this house"

I absolutely would not give bitcoin as a gift. I don't feel it's appropriate force my world view on others, and doing so may be viewed as such. t is also a hassle for the recipient to do anything with it. Furthermore you open yourself up to embarrassment if the value drops suddenly and the$ $200 you gifted is worth $150 overnight.

If people do not use bitcoin it can not be considered as a wedding gift. If you join then this will be the savings for your life. There will be times when you do not expect you can make good money from bitcoin. Two people will have comfortable travel together whether married or long wedding.

Yes right, I think it's better to give a gift that can be seen and used when the wedding, such as bed, closet, until the baby equipment to prepare for later childbirth. if we give bitcoin of course he does not know who the sender.

This idea has been on my mind for a very long time, to give my best Friend a half Bitcoin for his marriage. I feel all the gifts are boring and they are not worth the time and this would be the best idea. Also I would love to receive bitcoins as gifts when I marry that will help me plan my retirement very well. People are yet to awake to this but I feel that this is the best gift to give people so to make sure they really make most of their wedding lives with extra Cushing of money.
There is a lot of  type of gifts like ring, flower, clothes, money etc . just like you can also gift bitcoins to your friends  in mostly cases like if you are so far away and you want to gift your friend then you can simple give him a bitcoin which will be a big gift for your friend because bitcoin  is a big rate currency.

Newbies need more money than anything at the time to help them start a married life. And for Bitcoin instead of a hard cash is much more thoughtful. Bitcoin on my wedding and not the person who will give it to others. Even so, like other people say, it's better to pick up, but if Bitcoin is the one to be given, I'll go the other way. Smile. I give BTC as gifts, couples can not afford to use it. Or they will give it to someone for free, or they will throw it away. The fact that it's bitcoin is just an inconvenience at this time; Now they have to find an ATM or register on an exchange. And take a loss. Sad

This is a quite distinctive thought and also new I heard. Just think about when a bride gets bitcoin then they will certainly find that puzzling. Probably that does not use to those who previously know bitcoin, but even now men and women who know bitcoin also would be amazed and did not consider with the prize he obtained.

No. Simply because I think it actually odd and strange.If I want to give cash I will give it with money, not Bitcoin or Credit score Card.But I am not against people who give Bitcoins as their marriage ceremony reward.I just will not like it. I like Bitcoin but I do not like it as a wedding ceremony reward.

It's too early to do that in my country.Even though many of them know what Bitcoin is but most of them are not into it due to the lack of knowledge about blockchain. They are still thinking that it is a bubble.So I might consider gifting option in future when the usage of Bitcoin is at good level.But as of now it will be a weirdest thing in my country.

I think this is not a bad idea. True, here the most important thing is that the person to whom you gives, knew what to do with them)
