A Wedding Planner’s Guide to Portable Restroom Rentals for Weddings

Restrooms might not be the first thing on your list when planning an outdoor wedding. It’s more fun to choose flowers, dresses, and a cake. However, the availability of clean, comfortable restrooms can make or break the experience of your wedding guests. After the reception, you want them talking about the beautiful setting and bride, not how long they waited in line for a less-than-beautiful bathroom.

Whether you’re planning your own wedding or the big day for your son, daughter, or BFF, learn what you need to know about porta potty rentals for weddings.

Does Your Wedding Require Portable Restrooms?

Whether you dream of an intimate wedding at your family home or a lavish garden party at a park, you need a place for guests to… you know.

First, let’s talk about a home wedding. Don’t torture the existing bathrooms in the house. Having people in and out can create unease for the homeowner—even if that’s you. Worst case scenario, you could wind up with a disastrous clog that ruins your whole wedding.  A septic tank for a 3 bedroom house is designed to support 6-8 people.  A septic tank can fail when a party of 50-100 people show up for 4-6 hours.

If you get married outdoors, bathrooms are a must. Don’t rely on public restrooms in a park or at the beach. They may be badly managed and, in some cases, people other than your guests may have access. That’s just awkward.

Think about how many trailer stalls you need and where to position the trailer. A rough guideline is one toilet stall per 100 guests (or one portable toilet per 75 guests). With our wide selection, you can choose from trailers with three to 13 stalls.

Work Them into Your Wedding Budget

Put restroom rentals on your list of needs right from the start. Just as you budget for your venue, catering, photography, and other necessities, budget for portable restrooms. If you’re lucky enough to have family contributing to wedding costs, discuss all the amenities you need with everyone involved. Help everyone understand the vital importance of clean, comfortable restrooms for your wedding guests.

Choosing the Right Type of Portable Restrooms for Weddings

Keep the magic of your wedding alive even when guests take a potty break. The last thing you want are grossed-out guests. Look for luxury amenities like fully operational plumbing, ventilation systems, air conditioning, and running water. Wedding planners recommend adding personal touches, like flowers or shrubs to mask the outside and small decorative touches inside. Martha Stewart Weddings even suggests hiring a restroom attendant for an added touch of elegance.

Order Your Portable Restrooms in Plenty of Time

Don’t get caught ordering portable restrooms for your wedding when it’s already too late. In Florida, demand peaks during the cooler months of spring and fall, especially in March and October. You’ll also need to allow more time for larger restroom trailers. Asa general rule of thumb, you should order these at least one to three months in advance, depending on the size of your wedding.
