Creating A Unique Wedding Geofilter Just Became Much Easier

Throwing a 30th birthday shindig, a bachelorette party, or a baby shower can feel like an impossible task. How will it be Instagrammable, feel special, and look different from what all of your friends have done before?
Snapchat has you covered — on the social-media front, at least. While the app has let users create community Geofilters for various cities and on-demand options for your own events, the process of designing a filter (and then getting it approved) was a challenge if you weren't a Photoshop pro. But today, things just became much simpler.
A new creative studio within the Snapchat app make it easier than ever to design a unique Geofilter that's very cost-effective. Previously, Snapchat required you to go online for this service. It's the perfect alternative, or addition, to an event hashtag. Click through to see how you can make your own for your Labor Day party, Halloween, and any other upcoming events.

First, go to your main profile screen and tap Settings. From there, select "on-demand Geofilters" and press the icon in the upper right-hand corner. This will take you to a screen where you can pick your theme, whether it's a wedding or July 4th party, and choose a template.

Once you've picked your template, you can edit the text and add any fun stickers in the same way you do on a regular Snap.

From there, choose the time and date that you want your Geofilter to be available during. Set up the location of your event, be it a backyard party or wedding venue, by dragging the dots on screen. Only those who are within your blue, fenced-in area will be able to access and use your filter once it goes live. The minimum area is 20,000 square feet, which is roughly part of a street block, and the maximum area is 50,000,000 square feet, or a few city blocks.

And, you're done! Submit your Geofilter for review, which usually takes about one business day, and wait for confirmation. Once confirmed, you'll pay for your filter. Cost varies depending on the length of time it will be live and the distance it will cover, but begins at $5.99.
