Want your wedding guests to freely broadcast the event with its lavish decorations, food, and ambiance? Or, do you just want a memorable wedding without eliciting FOMO from those who cannot attend? Whatever the case is, one trendy way to do this is through the use of wedding Snapchat geofilters.
A wedding Snapchat filter is a pre-made photo or video overlay that can be used on the Snapchat app during your wedding. They are also considered geofilters since only those who are within the vicinity of the geofence (typically the wedding hall or reception area) are able to access and use the filter for their own Snapchat posts.
This article is all about teaching you how to create Snapchat geofilters that can beautifully capture different moments during a wedding reception or ceremony. We will also show you some downloadable Snapchat filter template design that you can pattern your own geofilters from.
First, you must choose a filter theme that coincides with the official wedding motif or theme. For example, if you are having a floral summer theme, you should use floral wedding stationery and floral wedding Snapchat template design. The more similar the designs of all your wedding decorations, invites, place cards, etc are, the more cohesive the entire event’s overall look is.
Next, it’s time to choose the specific information or wording you wish to write down on your Snapchat filter. The most common pieces of information shared on a Snapchat wedding geofilter are the wedding dates, the couple’s names, the location of the event, and the event’s designated hashtag (if available).
Based on the theme and wedding details that you have decided to use, you may now choose and download a pre-made wedding Snapchat filter. We have included a few downloadable examples in this article so feel free to select a template design from this curated list.
Then, you should begin customizing the template. Add your own wedding dates, names, event locations, etc. And if you have chosen a wedding monogram or letterhead design, don’t forget to add it to the filter template. Also, remember that Snapchat has created a few guidelines as to what specific information to add on customized templates. Be sure to read that before creating your own filter template.
After making sure that you have followed all of Snapchat’s rules for creating personalized filters, it’s time to submit the template file for the company’s approval. The process takes about 1 to 3 weeks. Make sure that you submit the template well before the wedding day.
Once approved, you can begin setting up the geofence within the confines of the wedding location. Don’t forget to tell your wedding guests about the free wedding Snapchat filter they can use during the event. Also, inform them that any video or photo they take using Snapchat may also be cross-posted on different social media networking sites like Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter.

Keep it simple. This is a cardinal rule to follow when making or customizing Snapchat geofilter templates. And the Wedding Snapchat Geofilters Template (shown above) beautifully exemplifies this. Use this template design if you prefer to have your wedding information at the bottom of the filter template instead of overcrowding the top and sides of the filter’s borders.
