So much goes into planning a wedding, whether it be the dress, the cake, the venue or the entertainment, that one thing often gets overlooked: the toilets.
After all, it’s hardly the most glamorous aspect of the big day, but that doesn’t mean you can’t add a bit of extra luxury to proceedings, especially if you’re hosting an outdoor wedding.
More and more couples are choosing to opt for luxury portable toilets, a far cry from the usual portable toilets that you’d be more likely to see somewhere such as a music festival.
Here are five reasons why you should consider booking luxury toilets for your big day.
Accommodating large numbers
Weddings are no longer the small family affairs they once were, with huge extended families and everybody inviting plus ones.
Having so many people to cater for is difficult enough, but have you considered where they’re all going to go to the loo?
Anyone who has been to a music festival will know that large numbers of people using one toilet will quickly turn to disaster, so you need to make sure you have a good ratio of toilets to people.
If your venue is quite small, you may have considered setting up some cheap portable toilets to help accommodate everyone, but why compromise on quality?
People’s expectations have changed
Not so recently, the rudimentary single cubicle design of portable toilets was really the only way to go.
People were much more open to the idea of using these toilets, simply because they were the only option!
Nowadays there are much more sophisticated options available, and weddings, on the whole, have become much grander occasions, with every single aspect of the day being scrutinised.
As harsh as it may seem, even if the rest of your day is absolutely perfect, there’ll always be one person who’ll pull you up on the substandard toilets!
Another great thing about going for higher end toilets is that you have a lot of choice over which ones you go for and can really try to tie them in with the rest of your décor.
For example, you can go from the very simple single cubicle designs which are essentially an upgraded version of the portable loos that you might be used to, with a proper flushing system, steel hand wash bowl and hand wash dispensers.
However, there are also much more sophisticated options available with proper wooden finishes and LED lighting, with many able to be customised to your needs with extra functions.

Hygiene is obviously of utmost importance when it comes to toilets because let’s face it, they’re not the most hygienic of places.
However, luxury portable toilets take hygiene very seriously, with proper hand washing facilities.
These are sometimes operated using a foot pump, which allows them to be operated without using hands, to limit the spread of germs!
Water for the hand washing station is also kept completely separately to the flushing water for extra hygiene.
At the end of the day, if you can’t go that little bit further for a bit of luxury on your wedding day, when else can you?
It’s a chance to live like royalty for a day, and do things a little bit differently. Sure, your guests may well go away talking about how great the ceremony or the food was, but they’re sure to be caught off guard when they step into a portable toilet and feel like they’re in a five-star hotel!
