Wedding Marquee Hire FAQ’s


What are your top tips for couples on deciding if a marquee is right for the day?



When choosing between different marquees, there are some things you should keep in mind, like where you want to have the wedding, how involved you want to be in the wedding plans, if you have a venue that needs alteration, and whether you have faith in the company that’s applying your marquees.

What styles of wedding marquee are available?



Our marquees go from 3.6 m² to 9m x 27m, and they include, Frame Marquees, Canopy Marquees, Heated Marquees, Entrance Marquees, Modern Wedding Marquees, Luxury Wedding Marquees, Bespoke Wedding Marquees, and more.

Can marquees be used all year-round for weddings?



Marquees can be used at any wedding season. But it’s still important to consider whether the site and the weather on the day will be suitable.

This way, a venue or site that is particularly exposed to prevailing winds will not be suitable and an alternative location can be considered.

Is it possible to ensure that marquees are warm enough for winter weddings?



Yes.

We will have no trouble ensuring your guests are warm throughout the ceremony.

We charge based on the amount of fuel use and not the number of heating units – so in the colder weather, we equip the marquee with more heaters and also have a back-up unit always at the ready.

How will the wedding marquee cope with at adverse weather conditions?



In extreme conditions, traditional marquees may not hold up, while on a smaller scale, torrential rain and windy conditions can result in a noisy marquee and muddy grounds in excess rain.

Make sure you don’t commit to a wedding date before double-checking the weather forecast.

Are your marquees waterproof?



The marquees are waterproof but if there is heavy rain and poor soil, water might seep in underneath.

5 If you have additional funds, you might consider a hard floor and carpet to help.

How far in advance of the wedding date do I need to hire the marquee?



It is difficult to advise on how early a booking needs to be made.

However, if you have a date in mind, you should inform us so that we can let you know if it is available and when a date is selling out so you can secure it if you wish.

How long does it take to erect a wedding marquee?



The time will depend on the size of the marquee.

The marquee is put up around 1 to 3 days before the event takes place and left for a day after.

How do I know what size of marquee I’ll need for my wedding?



The size will depend on whether you want a dance floor, DJ area or bar, as well as your guest list.

How much room does a disco take up?



Allow five foot along the width of one side of a dance floor.

Do we need a generator?



Yes.

In case of a power failure, you should always have a generator ready to go.

Do uplighters provide enough light?



Uplighters can create a nice effect.

They are unsuitable for a brightly lit event.

How safe are your wedding marquees?



They are fully fire resistant.

We only use materials that meet British Standard certifications when making them.

Does Strawberry Marquees have insurance cover?



Strawberry Marquees are covered for public and product insurance.

The customer is responsible for insurance cover against theft or damage of the marquee and associated equipment during the hire period.

Could a marquee damage cables or pipes running underneath?



The steel pegs used to secure the marquee in the ground can cause damage to underground drainage cables or pipes.

Any underground services of this nature mean you must inform us so we can avoid them.

Will your marquees damage our garden?



There’s no loss and damage.

The colour of the grass under the marquee may fade slightly but should revert quickly.

Contact us today for an accurate quote.

Access to the marquee site is restricted, is this a problem?



Not at all.

Our marquees are highly portable, and we can access most areas without difficulty.

However, there is an extra charge added if your site is very difficult to access or is more than 25m from the nearest available access point.

How much space will I need to set up my Wedding Marquee?



Factors such as your guest list, bar, dance floor, and band will determine the size needed.

We perform site inspections to offer you advice on your marquee choice.

What surface is suitable for my wedding marquee?



There are many suitable surfaces, but we must be able to secure the marquee directly to the ground

During the site visit, we will access the ground and let you know if a particular surface is suitable.

Do I need matting?



The ground might look better with matting, but this is up to you.

Matting is recommended for weddings, both for this and because it makes wearing high heels more comfortable.

Matting is usually needed for a dance floor, but not necessarily for a catering tent.

Should I cut the grass?



You can, but cutting it too close to the day means the grass can stick to the marquee surface, and any cut grass should be removed unless you’re going to have matting.

Do you decorate the wedding marquees?



Yes, we do.

Do you hire linen, cutlery, generators or toilets?

Generators and luxury toilets can be made available as well as the marquees.

We do not, however, hire kitchen equipment.

What is included in the initial quote?



We can include the cost of the marquee (sized to suit), lighting, internal power distribution (sockets for charging, bar catering, and other
features), heating, ivory lining, doors, windows and flooring (sized to suit) in the initial quote.

Your choice and needs will affect any other finishes or equipment.

When is site meeting necessary?



Once you have received the quote, that visit must take place as soon as possible.

We need to measure the site and check whether it is suitable for a marquee.

Are your marquees lined?



Not necessarily.

Lined marquees are available for those who prefer them.

What about electricity?



Any close-by building should be able to provide power, as you will not need much.

You may need to provide a generator for backup.

Please contact us if you have any questions about hiring a marquee or party tent.

Can I decorate the Wedding marquee myself?



You certainly can.

We are there to make sure that your wedding goes just the way you imagined.

We will provide any necessary advice.

This will vary depending on location.

You are able to choose a different seating arrangement if you prefer.
