Let’s be honest, we all love playing around on Snapchat and if it’s your platform of choice then why not give your tech-ready guests a little extra something to smile about with a custom Snapchat geofilter? If these cool extras are good enough for the likes of Snapchat CEO Evan Spiegel who used a bespoke cartoon proposal geofilter when he proposed to the gorgeous Miranda Kerr then you might want to prep your own filter too.

What is a Snapchat geofilter?

Put simply, a geofilter is a super cool overlay that appears when you use Snapchat in a certain area. Open up Snapchat in a particular city for example and you’ll get a choice of flags, iconic backdrops or cartoons showing the most well known landmarks in that area. When you use a geofilter in Snapchat, you’re basically saying ‘I was there’.

As you might have guessed from the name, geofilters only work when you’re using Snapchat within a clearly defined area. If you use Snapchat inside a specified ‘geofence’ you’ll find a whole new selection of filters that you might never have seen before. So, as you can probably imagine, geofilters are full of possibilities when it comes to weddings…

Creating your own Snapchat wedding geofilter

Firstly, don’t think that you need to be total tech-head to be able to tick this off your wedding to-do list. Oh no, Snapchat has made it super easy to get wedding ready and the first thing to do is to visit their website and click to create your own geofilter in their ‘personal’ category.

You can choose from lots of designs that work with your wedding theme and then personalise them with whatever additions you like! You could choose to include your names, your wedding date or the details of your wedding venue. Your own personal geofilter could include your favourite emojis, a quote or just something that really sums up your wedding. Designs start from $5 so this isn’t something that’s going to bust your wedding budget either.

Once you’ve got your design finalised, you need to specify your geofence (the area within which the filter will work) and this is really easy to do – just click and draw the boundary around the grounds of your wedding venue for example. The final details to add in are the date or dates that you’d like your Snapchat geofilter to appear and then click submit. Ta-dah! You’ve done it!

Using your geofilter

Snapchat do review all of the submissions that they receive so it’s worth reading through their guidelines before you submit your wedding geofilter to them. You should know in a day or two whether your geofilter has been given the go ahead and, if it has, it will spring into life at exactly the right moment for you and your guests to use.

Then, all you need to do is to let your guests know that if they open up Snapchat at your wedding, there’ll be a surprise waiting for them…
