Traditional wedding venues don't use portable potties, because they have restroom facilities in their buildings. If you want to have your wedding somewhere other than a traditional wedding venue, however, you may need to rent portable toilets so your guests can relieve themselves during the ceremony and reception. As you look at portable potty rental options, here are some considerations to take into account.
Handicapped-Accessible Portable Potties
If any of your wedding guests are handicapped or elderly, make sure you get at least one handicapped-accessible portable potty. Depending on how many grandparents, great aunts and great uncles, and handicapped individuals are attending, you may want more than one easily accessible potty. Without a handicapped-accessible option, these guests may have a difficult time using a portable potty.
Additionally, make sure any guests who may need the easy accessibility that handicapped-accessible portable potties offer know you'll be renting at least one. It might be a little awkward to bring up, but these guests may decide not to come if they don't think there will be facilities they can use.
Portable Potty Trailers
For guests who don't need handicapped-access, consider renting a portable potty trailer. Portable potties on a trailer are elevated off of the ground, so they may not be the best solution for people who have trouble navigating steps. For most of your guests, though, these will be a perfectly suitable solution.
Having a portable potty on a trailer lets you place the potties exactly where you want them -- so you won't have to worry about them being the background of your photos. The potties themselves usually have nice exteriors, so they won't detract from your wedding's decor or natural setting.
Some portable potty trailers have finished interiors. There are models that have mirrors, sinks, soap dispensers, running water, and even heat and air conditioning. Your guests might not even recognize the inside as a portable potty.
Placement Where You Want
Whatever kind of portable potties you decide to rent, make sure the rental company will be able to place the potties where you want them. Ask them if they'll review your wedding's location before they deliver the portable potties so they can check to see what types of potties will work in the spot you've chosen. Sometimes natural limitations, such as unstable ground or not being near a roadway, limit what types of portable potties you can use. If the rental company comes before you need your potties, you'll be able to work with them to choose the most suitable type of portable potties.
