Read on for more information on how to utilize this awesome new resource for your big day!


            If you’re new to Snapchat and its vast hold on the social media sphere, then you are probably wondering what a geo-filter is. Geofilters are custom overlays that can be added to a snapchat post and correspond with a particular location, event, or celebration. Geofilters add just a touch of personalization to photos making it clear to all those who are watching your feed that you are part of something truly special. Because these overlays can only be accessed in specific locations, they change and adapt depending upon your location. A geofilter found in New York may likely never appear on your device should you be in Portland.

Custom Geofilters

            When geofilters were first introduced to the Snapchat world, they could only be found in conjunction with location landmarks, often times depicting a specific city, national landmark, or suburb as a way to add a location stamp to your snaps. Overtime though, Snapchat has opened this feature up to the public, allowing businesses and now individuals the opportunity to create a customized geofilter specific to their event. This has allowed groups to create an overlay that applies to an individual party or event making your recording and sharing of a particular event just that much more special. A customized geofilter can be set for a specific amount of time, available in a specific geofence. Geofences are the area in which the filter will become visible to users. The geofence can be drawn on a map giving the creator a visual of the exact area where their filter will become available to the public.

Geofilters and Weddings

In a wedding world full of ways to personalize your special day, why not carry that customization over into the social media sphere? You already know your guests will be documenting your big day through Snapchat, so it only makes sense to allow them to personalize their snaps with a custom geofilter set just for your wedding!!
