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 smallest marquees are 3.6m², and the largest are 9x27m, with a choice between modern, bespoke, and luxury wedding marquees, and canopy marquees, frame marquees, entrance marquees, and heated marquees.

Can marquees be used all year-round for weddings?



You can use a marquee for a wedding at any time the year. Don’t forget to consider planning aspects like the weather and the site at which the wedding will be held.

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?



Warmth shouldn’t be a problem.

We are more than capable of keeping your guests warm throughout the ceremony in colder months.

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?



Muddy conditions and rain on top of the marquee can be unpleasant, and severe weather can even cause damage to the marquee.

It is therefore important to check the weather forecast before setting a date.

Are your marquees waterproof?



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

A safe but expensive alternative is to opt for a hard floor with carpet.

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.

Nevertheless, it’s important to give us your best estimate for the date, so you can make a booking if we have a date available.

How long does it take to erect a wedding marquee?



Each size of marquee takes a different time.

The marquee should be in place between one and three days before the wedding and will be removed the day afterward.

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



We will need details on your guest list, as well as additions like whether you want a dance floor, bar, or DJ area, before determining the possible size.

How much room does a disco take up?



The dance floor should generally have a 5-foot width along one side.

Do we need a generator?



Certainly.

It is our recommendation that a generator is made available, in case there is a power failure.

Do uplighters provide enough light?



Uplighters are good for creating a simple atmosphere.

They don’t have enough light for a well-lit party.

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.

While the marquee is under hire, the customer must provide insurance for damage, both for the marquee and equipment, and theft.

Could a marquee damage cables or pipes running underneath?



Damage might be caused to drainage cables or pipes by the steel pegs used to secure the marquee.

It’s important to let us know if there are any services underground that we should avoid.

Will your marquees damage our garden?



There will be no damage that remains in the long-term.

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

How much does it cost to hire a wedding marquee?



Each wedding has different considerations. The same applies to marquees.

Aspects such as size, furniture, lighting, and flooring can be different for each person.

Strawberry Marquees can give you everything you have imagined for your wedding.

Contact us today for an accurate quote.

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



Not at all.

We have no difficulty moving our marquees into most sites, as they are easily portable.

If there is a site that is over 25m from the nearest access point or is difficult to reach, however, will incur an additional charge.

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



It depends on your guest list, bar, dance floor, and band.

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

What surface is suitable for my wedding marquee?



It is important that the ground allows us to secure the marquee to it directly but there are many surfaces which will allow this.

We will tell you if the site is suitable after we check it as part of the site visit.

Do I need matting?



Generally, matting looks better, but it depends on your event.

Because of this, and because it allows for the use of high heels, we generally recommend matting for weddings.

A typical dance floor requires matting, while catering tents do not unless specifically requested for.

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?



Always.

Do you hire linen, cutlery, generators or toilets?

We have luxury toilets and generators available as well as our marquees.

We do not have kitchen equipment to hire, however.

What is included in the initial quote?



Our initial quote should include the marquee of the size you choose, lighting, internal power distribution including sockets, bar, catering, etc., heating, lining, doors, windows and the correct size of floor.

Additional finishes and equipment are up to you.

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?



They do not need to be lined.

However, we can line them if you want.

What about electricity?



Marquees do not generally need much electricity, and you can get power from the building nearby.

You might need a backup generator.

If you have any of the questions about hiring a marquee or one of our party tents, get in touch.

Can I decorate the Wedding marquee myself?



You certainly can.

Your wedding should be designed as you want it to be, and it’s our job to make that happen.

Any advice needed can be given.

Can you suggest venues where to set up my Wedding Marquee?



This depends on your area

We can give you suggestions for the location of the wedding marquee once you get in contact.

How many guests can I seat around a table?



6 to 12 is the usual number of guests for a table.

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