Planning a Wedding in the USA With The Help of Portable Toilets and Restroom Trailers
When you're planning for a wedding, the first things that come to mind are probably a budget, picking out your outfit, and coming up with a guest list.
Despite this, don't underestimate the importance of properly planned facilities. After all, your guests are guaranteed to need to use them, and nobody enjoys waiting in long lines while the fun is going on without them. Worst of all, if the line is too long, someone might suffer an "accident," which is bound to ruin the night.
So, let's look at how you can plan to use portable toilets for your wedding.
The Right Number of Portable Toilets or Restroom Trailers
You certainly want your guests to enjoy the wedding. However, you wouldn't want them to spend a lot of time waiting in line. This can particularly be a problem if you're having younger children at the event since they often can't wait very long before an "accident" happens.
So, it's essential to figure out how many toilets or restroom trailers you need and rent an appropriate number. This can be hard to plan for, but here are some guidelines that can help you assume a 3–4-hour reception and both food and alcohol served at your wedding.
For an event without food and drinks, you should have approximately one portable toilet for every 75 guests. Since you probably have food and drink at a wedding event, you will want about 20% more units. Here are some estimates for other size events.
100 or Fewer Guests: It is generally acceptable to rent four portable toilets for a smaller wedding like this.
200 or Fewer Guests: For a wedding of this size, plan to rent at least eight portable toilets.
Greater than 200 Guests: At this size, the proper amount of facilities can become considerably larger, but bring a minimum of one toilet for every 25 guests. Consider the length of the event carefully and space the toilets out appropriately.
You may not want the facilities to be visible in any of your wedding photos, which is understandable, particularly for events that occur primarily outdoors. However, you also don't want your guests to take time to get to the facilities and back, so try placing units approximately 150 feet from the reception area. This is far enough away to keep them out of most pictures but close enough for any urgent needs.
