Snapchat, a popular mobile app that allows you to send videos and pictures to friends is a fun messaging app that has become very popular among the younger generation, particularly among girls in Saudi Arabia.
What has contributed to its popularity is the fact that the pictures or videos you take are self destructed after a few seconds of a person viewing them. In Have Fun and Use Snapchat at Your Wedding we gave you fun ideas of how to use Snapchat at your wedding.
Through Snapchat you can capture a photo or brief video with it, then add a caption or doodle or filter/lens over top, and send the finished creation (called a snap) to a friend. Alternatively, you can add your snap to your "story", a 24-hour collection of all your snaps that’s broadcasted to the world or just your followers.
But did you know that you can now create your own filters on Snapchat?
You can purchase On-Demand Geofilters for your wedidng event from a selection of available templates, or design your own filter that carries your names, so all your friends get to use the same filter on their pictures and videos during your wedding! How cool is this wedding idea?
Snapchat allows you to design your filter through either Photoshop where you can opt to add the wedding date for example, and upload it onto Snapchat or through the app itself by selecting "Design".
After you design your filter and select the geofence area, you submit it for review and approval by Snapchat, which normally takes a couple of days. This service is available in some Arab countries and will soon be offered to all.
Here are some ideas for personalised Snapchat wedding filters we like which you could get some inspiration from:
