Sanitation, it’s one of those items most couples relegate to the bottom of their wedding budget. They figure that wedding décor, catering and of course photography are the most important items for a successful wedding. But considering just how many hours guests spend at your event, there are so many things that can go wrong if you fail to provide adequate sanitation services like mobile toilets for them. Here’s a rough idea of what such a wedding reception would look like:
The queue at the wash rooms is longer than the one at the catering tent
This often happens when you pick a venue that comes with washrooms on site, say a small hotel’s gardens. The problem here is that their four toilets are not equipped to handle your 500 wedding guests. This will inevitably lead to long queues, with guests spending a disproportionate amount of time trying to access the facilities as opposed to enjoying themselves.
The photographer has to keep retaking his shots because the guests are grimacing instead of smiling
They are avoiding using the filthy washrooms at the school or church grounds you picked as the reception venue. No one informed you that the school toilets stink and have no water to flush. The guests will stop eating and drinking and start counting down to the end of the wedding so they can escape.
There are whole empty tables at the reception for long periods at a time
This happens when you have a destination wedding, maybe out in the wild or in a large open park or ground. The designated toilets may be quite far from your exact reception venue, forcing your guests to take the long trek to and fro. They miss out on important proceedings like the cake cutting or the photo session, just because the hosts didn’t provide sanitation facilities close by.

As liberal and open minded as you may be, traditions are important especially on occasions when extended family members are present. Sharing bathrooms with the opposite sex or specific in laws is taboo in some communities. To be good hosts, you must foresee such situations and organize separate facilities so all your guests can be comfortable.
Securing the services of a good portable toilets vendor such as Ecotact Limited will alleviate all these problems and ensure your guests have a good time. They can provide as many units of simple or VIP mobile toilets as your event requires.
