A video of a groom surprising his bride with a cape made of approximately $17,000 in cash has shocked many social media users.

A clip of a happy couple's wedding celebrations has been shared on the X account @PicturesFolders, which boasts 4 million followers on the platform.

The footage begins with a man opening a suitcase and taking out a sheet that is large enough to stretch out across the room.

It is believed that the gifted sheet was made out of one million Philippine pesos, which is around $17,300.

Watch the video below:

After revealing the length of the present, the groom draped the sheet, which had a pair of red ribbons attached to the front two corners, around his new wife's shoulders.

By the end, the bride was rocking the gigantic cape made entirely out of banknotes over her white bridal dress.

Many people on the social media platform took to the comment section to share their stunned reactions to the expensive gift.

One user said the man was "setting up big expectations in their married life," while another person remarked the gesture "seems a bit 'over the top,'" explaining: "Not something you really would do in front of other people."

Meanwhile, a third joked: "Future husband I hope you see this," and a fourth quipped: "This is something I wouldn't mind walking on."

"Can this be classified as true love? Or guarantee loyalty and trust?" someone on X questioned.

Some people pointed out that the couple performed the "money dance" which is a tradition in the Philippines and several other countries such as Poland, Greece, Nigeria, Latin America, Eastern Europe, and more.

According to The Knot, it symbolizes good fortune between the newlyweds and helps them build a strong financial future together.

There are a few ways that couples can decide to go about it, as Ame Hernandez, founder & experience designer of Amersive Events, explained to the outlet: "Male guests line up in front of the bride to pin money on her dress before dancing with her, while female guests pin money on the groom before dancing with him.

"They can pin dollar bills, $10 bills, $20 bills or more, individually or get really creative with money garlands, crowns, bracelets, and necklaces," she added.

Would you gift your significant other a cape made entirely out of banknotes?
