8 Reasons to Have Outdoor Porta Potties at Your Next Event

8 Reasons to Have Outdoor Porta Potties at Your Next Event

Do you dream of getting married under the summer sky or hosting a wedding anniversary party to end all wedding anniversary parties? Well, don’t let thoughts of the venue keep you from planning your special moment under the local park’s veranda or your friend’s expansive plot of land.  

Below, we’re going to review how outdoor porta potties can pluck your wildest dreams out of the sky and place them into reality. With a little bit of planning and consideration based on your guest list, you can have an ideal setup at your next party or event. 

1. Venue Options Increase

Porta potties open up a world of venue options. That park where you first kissed your husband? You can plan your wedding reception there now without worrying about bathroom facilities. That farmland you inherited from your ancestors? You can plan your 50-year wedding anniversary there now.  

As long as you can get the generators to that magical space, you can string the lights, set out the hot plates, pump up the subwoofers, and dream your biggest dreams. Porta potties completely eliminate the question of, “Where will people go to the bathroom?” 

2. Your House Stays Clean

If you’re planning an event on your property, will guests have to go in and out of your house? Do you know everyone on the list well enough to feel comfortable having them walk through your home?

If you have more guests than your one and a half bath can accommodate, you’ll definitely want to consider a porta potty. It’ll reduce the lines and the foot traffic through your home.

3. Guest Comfort

Aside from ease of use, porta potties also offer a lot of comfort. This is part of the reason the future Queen of England’s sister, Pippa Middleton, didn’t bat an eye before setting up porta potties at her wedding reception.

You can place three or four facilities throughout the property. If you’re renting a gorgeous white tent for your event, you can place a porta potty at almost every corner. 

This will not only make the guests happy but also make all your expenditures worthwhile. The less time guests have to spend hoofing it to some sort of central facility (or your house), the more time they can spend out on the dance floor. 

4. Parental Assistance

Parents will definitely prefer slipping out of your big, white party tent to run the little ones to a central porta potty rather than schlepping one or all of their kids to some central facility.

And, knowing kids, one will go, they’ll all return to the tent, and then the next one will swear they have to go again. Now, mom and dad can refill their beverage and only take a few steps to help little Johnny or Mary take care of business. 

5. Handicap Assistance

The same thing holds true for your handicapped guests. Traveling long distances just to make it to the bathroom can be quite a burden to them.

And, no matter the style of porta potty you choose, most companies can install handicap units with ramps, railings, and added space. This elevates porta potties from simple comfort options to tremendously empathetic offerings. 

6. Decreased Cleaning

Although you will want to spot check your porta potties throughout the night, that’ll be the extent of your cleaning duties. You won’t feel compelled to bleach the toilet and sink after high levels of traffic. 

Rather, you’ll leave your porta potties out on the property and wait for the rental company to come along and haul them away. 

7. An Array of Options

Hopefully, you haven’t been here with us picturing old-school blue, plastic heat boxes. Nowadays, porta potties come in an array of options. You can even offer your guests full-blown flushable toilets, running water, and mirrors. 

Feel free to stream some music over an AM/FM radio in your facilities. Better yet, go wild and offer designated men’s and women’s rooms.

Lay out fancy towels and offer plenty of lighting. Don’t be surprised if, even in light of those delicious macarons and that spectacular open bar, the talk of the town will be about your luxurious porta potties. 

8. The Open Bar Mandates It

We’ve covered the practical with parental and handicap assistance. Now, it’s time to consider those who will be letting their hair down. If you plan to offer any alcohol at your event, easy access to the restroom will be a welcomed offering. 

The shortened lines will be helpful and the reduced traffic in your home will make you smile. And, again, don’t forget how pleasant your (non-existant) cleanup will be the morning after. 

You Won’t Regret Outdoor Porta Potties

When you consider the ease of access and reduced cleanup that comes with outdoor porta potties, it feels like a no-brainer, doesn’t it? Guests won’t have to push their bladders to the limit; young families will appreciate it; handicap guests will love your thoughtfulness.
