Planning a wedding involves seemingly-endless details, and one very important aspect that frequently gets overlooked is having the proper restroom facilities. While this may not be one of the more “glorious” chores of wedding planning, it is something that can absolutely ruin the entire event if it is not handled.

Making sure that your guests have access to clean and conveniently located restrooms is crucial for a successful and comfortable wedding experience.

This guide will help you learn everything you need to know about wedding restroom rentals.

Assess Your Needs

The first thing to do is to gauge how many people will be in attendance at the wedding. The typical rule of thumb is one restroom rental for every 50-75 guests. Also, estimate the length of time the ceremony is expected to go, and whether you’ll be serving food and beverages, as all of these factors affect the frequency of restroom usage.

Next, you’ll need to decide between the different models of portable restrooms. There are many various designs available for rental. Standard units offer basic features and amenities such as urinals, full toilets, and hand washing stations. If you are interested in more luxurious facilities, some units offer amenities such as mirrors, air-conditioning, and upscale designs.

Determine the Placement

Choosing the proper location for your wedding restroom rental is also extremely important so that it is easily accessible for your guests. Ideally, they should be placed far enough away from the main staging area to maintain privacy while still being close enough to be convenient.

It’s also important to make sure that you provide facilities that are accessible to all attendees, including those who may have disabilities. You should rent units that can accommodate people with various mobility problems. These restrooms are comfortably roomy and equipped with features such as ramps and handrails.

Establish a Budget

Portable restroom prices can vary greatly depending on the type of unit rented, the duration of the rental period, and any additional features that are selected. Develop a budget specifically for this aspect of your wedding and take into account any delivery, setup/disassembly, and maintenance fees.

Remember, investing in quality restroom facilities will contribute positively to the overall experience and enjoyment of your guests.

Coordinate with Venue & Communicate with Guests

If you’re having the wedding at a private or rented venue, enquire with the management regarding their policies concerning portable restrooms. Some venues may have specific restrictions or guidelines regarding placement or usage. Make certain to inform attendees about the presence and location of the restrooms. Post this info on the wedding website, guest invitations, and/or by using signage at the venue.

The Bottom Line

Although renting portable restrooms for your wedding may not be the most exciting part of your planning process, it is one aspect that simply cannot be mishandled. Nothing will ruin a perfect day or event faster than an untenable bathroom situation.

By following the advice provided in this guide, you’ll be able to provide your guests with clean, comfortable, and convenient restroom facilities, enabling a memorable and enjoyable wedding celebration for everyone in attendance.
