How to Create Your Wedding Snapchat Filter & Hashtag
From signature cocktails to choreographed first dances, the must-haves at weddings have evolved over the years. Having a custom Snapchat filter and catchy hashtag have become the latest trend! Thankfully, you don’t have to have a tech degree to create them! Follow these simple steps for creating your Snapchat filter and check out the tips on curating a fun hashtag.

📸 Choose the type of event you want — either from scratch or choose from templates sorted by event type
📸 Design your filter!
📸 Once you’re finished, tap the check mark and select the date for the filter to be active and the location at which the filter will be available
📸 Name the filter, confirm the details and submit for approval!
📸 Once it is approved by Snapchat, confirm payment details
