We will make this snappy; Snapchat is the latest greatest trend to hit your wedding.
"The best thing to hold onto in life is each other."
Admittedly the licking puppy filter is a bit overdone. We however cannot get enough floral crown filters and the deer filter "oh deer." We love Snapchat.
As a young trendy couple you are probably in love with Snapchat as much as we are. Here are some tips to enjoy snapping on your wedding day.
First, design a filter that is uniquely you. We love the deer filter, halos, makeup filters and more, but good geofilters are worth everything.
Geofilters are designed to promote an area or an event. You can have a geofilter designed to promote your wedding itself or perhaps the events leading up to your event (rehearsal dinner, bachelorette party, engagement party, etc...)
Geofilters can share your wedding hashtag without the # and showcase your theme of the day creating an online scrapbook.
They can also simply signify the location you have chosen to say "I Do." If you have chosen a destination wedding location like Sun Valley or McCall geofilters can be fun and even a bit useful.
Next, to snap or not to snap that is the question? Snapchat is not the new Instagram. Snapchat completely paved a new path. They revamped "behind the scenes." Snapchat albeit known for their "filters" they are truly the "unfiltered" social media. Your friends and family will share things on Snapchat that they wouldn't dream of posting on other social media sites. The joy of Snapchat at your wedding is you will often become so busy you miss out on the behind the scenes; Snapchat can give you a glimpse in to some of the moments you will miss. "The behind the scenes social media."
Last is the wonder of the geofence. When finalizing your custom Snapchat filter you get to lay down a geofence. This geofence limits the location of your filter and makes it available only to the people in the immediate area of your filter. Your geofence can cover the entire area of your reception. The wonder of the geofence reminds you how cool technology really is.
The most important thing when adding Snapchat to your event is to remember it disappears. What happens on Snapchat can literally stay on Snapchat unless you decide to utilize the new memory functions and save your story as well as some of your friends' moments of the day. Keep in mind that if you do not add your story to your memories it will only be a memory.
