Where Will You See Kerkstra This Summer?

The summer is our busiest time of the year, which means that we’ll be hauling trailers all over the state to some of Michigan’s most picturesque destinations. If you want to know where you’ll see our guys, check out these popular events that we’re booked for every year:

Weddings

Wedding season certainly keeps us busy! Whether it’s a wedding inside a barn, in a public park, or at a private residence, our luxury restroom trailers add a touch of elegance to outdoor nuptials. With a variety of restroom trailer sizes and configurations, our fleet provides tons of options for weddings of all sizes! No guest list is too small (or too large) to benefit from our fancy bathroom trailers.

Concerts

Outdoor concerts and music festivals are a hallmark of the summer season and all those people grooving and music to their favorite bands need a place to use the bathroom. That’s where we come in! Our luxury portable restrooms provide an upscale solution for on-stage talent, concert-goers, and event organizers alike. For multi-day events where attendees will be camping out, we also offer shower trailers to provide the ultimate in bathroom accommodations.

Corporate events

Corporate functions keep us busy year-round, but they’re especially prevalent in the summer months. One of the most popular features that appeals to corporate clients is our family-friendly options such as handicapped (and stroller) accessible stalls. Whether it’s a whole-company gathering, or a large team function, our trailers and standalone units offer a lot of options for corporate event planners looking for a portable restroom supplier.

Festivals

Local festivals, fairs, circus appearances, and other public attractions are an opportunity to see our luxury restroom fleet in action. We provide VIP trailers for all sorts of community gatherings and each year the lineup changes.

Races

We’re a staple at marathons and half marathons around the Grand Rapids area, but we also provide portable toilets and luxury portable restroom trailers to community races elsewhere in West Michigan. Whether it’s a fun run or a race for serious athletes, our bathrooms provide competitors and spectators with clean, reliable solutions.

  1. Climate-Controlled Interiors
  2. Running Hot/Cold Water
  3. Flushing Toilets
  4. Large Mirrors

Tips for Having a Luxury Wedding on a Budget

Wedding costs are higher than ever, especially for luxury weddings. So, if you’re looking for the same elegance and prestige of a luxury wedding without the large expense, here are some tips for reducing the cost of your big day:

Choose an Outdoor Venue

Outdoor wedding venues are really popular these days – especially during spring and summer months. Having an outdoor wedding at a non-traditional venue is a great way to make your wedding unique and also save a lot of money. You can create the same luxury feel that you’d have at a professional wedding venue by having upscale catering and renting luxury restrooms to wow your guests while they’re outdoors. Seating guests under an elegant-looking tent will protect them from the elements and provide a cozy feel into the evening, which will make your event fun and memorable.

Mix in DIY Accents

You don’t have to buy all the elements for your wedding. To save some money, you can mix in some items that you’ve made yourself. Whether it’s the invitations, favors, or centerpieces, if you’re willing to get crafty, you can save on these accents without any of your guests being the wiser. You can also recruit relatives and friends to help you make things for the wedding to let them be a part of your special celebration.

Opt for Less Lavish Food

The catering bill can be one of your biggest wedding expenses. But instead of making your wedding feel cheap by forgoing the meal, you can just opt for less expensive menu items. For instance, instead of offering a beef carving station or individual filets, you can offer more affordable cuts of meat with great sauces and a wonderful presentation. You can also lean more heavily towards seasonal vegetables and pastas. When it comes to the iconic wedding cake, you can go with a smaller or less intricate cake to save money. Or, better yet, you can skip the wedding cake altogether in favor of more seasonal individual desserts like strawberry shortcakes. Rustic touches like these are very fashionable right now!

Scale Back the Professional Help

Before you start booking professionals for your wedding, consider which services you really need and which you can do without. You may feel pressured to use a wedding planner, but doing the planning yourself can be more fun and save you tons of money. When it comes to the big day, opting for a DJ or a pianist instead of a full live band can result in substantial savings as well.

Shorten the Reception

Most people leave before the end of the reception anyways, so shortening it by an hour or more probably won’t have much of an effect on your guests. You’ll save money on every professional service you’re using (caterers, the DJ, and photographers) as well as the venue rental by having a shorter reception and most people probably won’t even notice.
