Congratulations on your upcoming wedding! As you plan the details of your big day, you may be wondering how to make the portable restrooms at your outdoor venue more appealing to your guests.
While portable restrooms may not be the most glamorous aspect of your wedding, with a few simple decorating ideas, you can transform your porta potties into an inviting and attractive part of your wedding experience.
Here are some simple ways to create an enticing portable restroom experience for your guests at your wedding reception.
Add Curb Appeal
Whether you’re renting a portable restroom trailer or standard porta potty units, why not offer your wedding reception guests a little drama just outside of the restroom? Creating temporary landscaping beds, as seen above, is an excellent way to create a bit of curb appeal and add visual interest outside of your portable restroom rental.
Disguise the Units
While we believe our units are gorgeous as they are, your wedding may have a different aesthetic. One of the easiest ways to change the look of portable restrooms is to disguise the units with a barrier or wrap.
Wraps help to disguise the appearance of portable restrooms, making them look more like a part of the wedding décor. Visit local antique stores to find old doors, shutters or screens that can be used to spruce up the porta potties. If you’re handy, consider building a wrap that surrounds the unit!
If you don’t claim to be handy and you don’t like digging through antique stores, many online retailers offer affordable, tall privacy screens! Before you get started, make sure the rental company allows customers to decorate in and around their units.
Give your Guests Privacy
Another way to create separation between guests and the portable restrooms is to use temporary structures such as walls, gates, or fences. Not only do these structures provide a physical barrier between guests and the restrooms, but they can also be decorated with flowers, garlands, or other decorative elements to help them blend in with the wedding décor. This will create a more elegant and cohesive look overall.
Add a Tent
Placing the units next to a tent is another great option. Not only will the tent provide guests with shade, but it will also give the impression that the portable restrooms are a part of the wedding setup.
This is a great option for those who want to provide guests with a shaded area to wait for the restrooms. You can even enhance this area by including rugs, seating, lighting, and toiletries for freshening up.
Decorate the Units
To further enhance the overall look and feel of the portable restrooms, consider decorating the inside with lighting, pictures, and other small touches. By adding a few personal touches, such as framed photos, flowers, or decorative lighting, guests will feel more comfortable and at ease while using the restroom. You can also provide guests with amenities such as hand sanitizer, mints, and tissues to help freshen up.
Get Creative with Portable Restrooms at Your Wedding Reception
While portable restrooms may not be the most glamorous aspect of your wedding, there are plenty of ways to make them more appealing to your guests. By using temporary structures to create separation, placing the units next to a tent, and adding personal touches inside, you can make the portable restrooms an integral and attractive part of your wedding day.
Remember to stay creative and have fun with your decorating to make your guests feel welcome and comfortable throughout the entire day.
