An outdoor event, however, is an entirely different ballgame. What if it rains? Where are people going to park if you don’t have a parking lot? Where are your caterers going to prepare their food? And most importantly, where are people going to go to the bathroom?
Sure, it takes a lot more planning, but there are plenty of inherent benefits to planning your event outside. First of all, you’re not as likely to face sky-high rental fees. Secondly, you’ll find people’s expectations are far more manageable: paper plates and portable restrooms go over far better outside than they do in a four-star hotel. Finally, there’s no better way to spend a day than in the great outdoors, and your guests will take summer sunshine over a darkened banquet hall any day.
If it’s your first time planning an outdoor event, don’t sweat it! Here are some quick and easy tips for negotiating porta potty rentals for your outdoor event:
Your guests will forgive poor food, weak beverages, and an out-of-tune band. They won’t care that they parked in a cornfield or couldn’t find a place to sit. What they will never forgive, however, is the lack of facilities.
Food, drinks, entertainment—these are luxuries. Having a facility to use when nature calls? Now, that’s a necessity. Nothing kills an outdoor event faster than an agonizingly long line to use the porta john. Line up your portable restroom rentals first. You can plan a potluck or truck in a cooler, but you won’t be able to supply your own portable toilets.
Before calling to find out portable bathroom availability, ask yourself these questions:
