Everything related to a wedding is so elegant, so refined, so proper that well, even the mention of a toilet sounds like potty mouth. But having a celebration alfresco when there are no bathrooms nearby means you need rental optionspronto. That’s where we come in: We’ve done all the dirty work (er, research) for you with the help of wedding planner extraordinaire Lyndsey Hamilton, creative director of Lyndsey Hamilton Events. From porcelain thrones (Kimye did have a golden toilet tower!) to porta-johns, here’s what you need to know.
You don’t want the loo in full view of guests or near where they are eating, so careful placement is a must, says Hamilton. If there aren’t any areas to tuck them away completely, hide units behind a barn, outbuilding, or even nestled in a grove of trees. “Make sure the bathrooms aren’t far from the tent and the path is covered in case it rains,” she says. You’ll also need to figure out where the water and power sources are located ahead of time.
From toilets to trailers
In the realm of wedding-worthy restroom rentals, there are your individual porta-cabins that have flush units (non-flush option are a no-no for obvious reasons!) and sinks. These typically go for about $300 apiece. Then there’s the restroom trailer, which can be like the royal flush of the mobile bathroom world. They are essentially regular bathrooms with running water, ample lighting, climate control, flushing toilets, and space, says Hamilton. They range in size from 10 to 26 feet and cost anywhere from $2500 to over $15,000, says Hamilton. “Although restrooms are not an item people want to spend a lot on, they really do make a huge difference,” she says.
