Everyone needs to answer the call of nature, especially when food and drinks are being consumed. While finding a restroom isn't a problem in an urban setting, it might be more challenging for the guests of your outdoor wedding to find adequate restroom facilities.
Renting portable toilets can be a great solution when it comes to your restroom needs. There are some key features that you should be looking for to ensure that the portable toilets you rent enhance your wedding, not detract from the beauty of the event.
1. Look for portable toilets in a neutral color.
The color of the portable toilets you rent can have a significant impact on the look of your outdoor wedding.
Most couples spend a lot of time, effort, and money designing centerpieces and other decorations for the wedding site. Mother Nature also provides a decorative element for outdoor weddings. The last thing you want is a bright blue portable toilet sticking out like a sore thumb.
Look for portable toilets in a neutral color instead so that the restroom facilities you rent for your outdoor wedding will blend into the surrounding environment.
2. Look for portable toilets with a dirt-free floor.
Your outdoor wedding will contribute to the accumulation of dirt and debris inside any portable toilet you rent. Guests will track dirt into the portable toilet on their feet. Unless your toilets have a dirt-free floor, this dirt can mingle with moisture and create a muddy mess inside the portable toilet unit.
A dirt-free floor features a slightly raised grate with a catch pan underneath. Guests walk on the grate, and dirt and debris will fall through the grate to the catch pan below. This feature will help ensure that your portable restrooms remain clean throughout your event.
3. Look for portable toilets with hand-washing stations.
Hygiene is important when it comes to using the restroom outdoors. You want your guests to be able to wash their hands after using the facilities so that germs and bacteria are not transferred to the food at your wedding.
Be sure that the portable toilets you rent have a hand-washing station. If there are no units with built-in hand-washing stations available, consider renting a separate hand-washing station to service your guests.
You can also place a basket of mini hand sanitizers as a wedding favor inside each portable restroom for guests to use throughout your event.
