One thing that I am pretty excited about is designing our own snapchat filter for our big day. At the moment custom filters are only available in the US, Canada and the UK but should be available in Ireland next year just in time for our wedding.
So here is how it works. The company is Makeshake. You can pick from a few filters on their website, and then reach out to them to make edits on colors, fonts, dates and so on.
You will be sent a .png image file that you can upload directly to Snapchat. At the moment this costs 22$.
Your Snapchat wedding Geofilter will be designed per your request and emailed to you within 48 hours.
You are responsible for uploading it to Snapchat and selecting the area, date, and time you want your filter to be active.
Once approved by Snapchat, you will be able to use your filter during the date and time requested and anyone, in the area you selected, will be able to use it. Keep in mind that Snapchat requires around 1-2 business days to process before it can go live.
Uploading a custom filter to Snapchat is an additional expense not included in the purchase of your filter at Makeshake. Uploading your filter is a simple & quick process that you complete online with your Snapchat account.
