    Guess what, another wedding to go to this month. Last time i gave cash, this time i might give a hawaii made ukulele as a gift. They may not know how to play but i think this is one way of introducing them to it. Even if they dont like it .muahahah

    Better give two Ukuleles. Just thinking ahead.

    you would need to give 2 ukes one each (a family that plays together stay together) but like was mentioned already a bit risky and if you gave money well they could buy what they like and you never know that might just be a uke or two

    Hi

    What a great idea giving a uke for a wedding present. You can't really go wrong, it's creative and more exciting than giving money.

    My niece gets married next year and I've got two ItsyBitsyUkes made for her and him. It should be a safe bet because if they don't like them they are ideal for using as substitute table tennis bats and they adore table tennis.

    Just one thing... Don't hit the ball to hard!

    Regards

    I think a nice Ko'Aloha or Kanile'a would be nice...or a Soprano Kamaka..giving a less expensive import for such a huge event in their life seems cheap to me...IMO
    money always the safest but a nice uke will last forever...

    I agree. They might think it's a gag gift.
    Too many ukes, but I can't stop buying!

    The OP has already decided to donate cash. Good idea. An ukulele could wind up causing.....divorce.

    Giving two is a great suggestion.

    The last thing you want to do is give newlyweds something to fight over

    My opinion is that when you have met someone who will approve of receiving an ukulele as a wedding gift, you will not have any questions about it.

    Consider, also, that the average wedding gift is a monetary gift equal to the cost of your plate(s). Where I live, this means you give around $75-$100 per person listed on your invitation. I point this piece out because unless you're planning to give somebody like $1000 for this wedding, a high-end ukulele seems a little above and beyond what's expected here.
