Snapchat has grown to become one of the most popular social apps on both iOS and Android, and for good reason, too! Snapchat allows users to send photos and videos to followers with fun and laughable overlays and filters. Users can add text or stickers to their snaps or even have some fun with drawing colorful designs.
Have you ever thought about how Snapchat could make your wedding even more fun and engaging?
Design your own geofilter for your wedding
Snapchat is constantly coming out with new filters and features but one of our favorites is the ability to create your own geofilter. Now, you can make your own custom filter for your wedding which is only available at your wedding location.
Photobooths at weddings and special events have been all the rage for some time now. Wedding guests have a blast with silly props and funny faces, creating picture perfect moments for their scrapbooks. Snapchat filters are the digital version of this, allowing your guests to take a snap anywhere in your wedding venue.
These customer geofilters can cover a 20,000 square feet to 5,000,000 square feet area, and last for any amount of time - five hours or five days!
How to make your wedding geofilters
If you’d like to make a custom geofilter for your wedding, the first thing you need to do is head over to the geofilters page on the Snapchat website. Once you’ve signed in and agreed to the terms, you can find a range of designs to choose from under the Weddings category, or if you’re feeling particularly adventurous, you can design your own from scratch using Photoshop or something similar.
From here, select the area of coverage for your filter from a map by clicking and dragging over the area. Then, enter the times that you’d like the geofilter to be active for. Be sure to make the geofence a little larger than your venue, as GPS is not always as exact as we’d like it to be.
Submit your filter and wait to see if Snapchat approves it. If you comply with all rules then you should have your very own Snapchat filter available for guests (and you!) to use when the time comes to celebrate your big day!
