Wedding Marquee Hire FAQ’s


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



There are a few things to consider when deciding on a marquee such as: your budget, your location, whether you want to change the size of the space later on, how involved you want to be in the planning process, and whether you trust your marquee supplier.

What styles of wedding marquee are available?



Our marquee types are Modern Wedding Marquees, bespoke wedding marquees, luxury wedding marquees, canopy marquees, frame marquees, entrance marquees, heated marquees, and you can choose from sizes as small as 3.6mx3.6m to 9mx27m.

Can marquees be used all year-round for weddings?



Marquees can be used all year-round weddings. 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?



Yes, it is.

We can take steps to make sure your friends and family are nice and cosy throughout the wedding, no matter what the season.

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?



Heavy rain and wind can make an outdoor event unpleasant, noisy, muddy, and harsher weather can even damage the marquee itself.

It is advisable to check the weather for any dates you’re considering for your wedding.

Are your marquees waterproof?



They are but the ground itself presents water risk in the event of heavy rain and less than optimal soil conditions.

Hard floor and carpet might be added to help, but this is an additional expense.

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



The perfect time for a booking is difficult to determine.

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 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?



There are various factors affecting the size including whether you want a dance floor, bar, DJ area, as well as guest list, which we will need.

How much room does a disco take up?



Make sure the dance floor has five foot of width on one side.

Do we need a generator?



You do need one.

We advise that you provide a generator in case there’s an issue with power supply.

Do uplighters provide enough light?



Uplighters can create a nice effect.

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

How safe are your wedding marquees?



They are entirely fire resistant.

The materials they are made from are all created to British Standard specifications.

Does Strawberry Marquees have insurance cover?



Yes, we have public and product insurance.

The customer is required to provide coverage for any damage to the marquee and equipment, and coverage theft, while responsible for the marquee.

Could a marquee damage cables or pipes running underneath?



Drainage cables or pipes under the ground could be damaged by the steel pegs used to secure the marquee.

Do inform us of any underground services so we can avoid them.

Will your marquees damage our garden?



There is no reason to be worried about lasting damage.

Although the grass underneath the marquee can fade, it will not take long to get back to the way it was before.

How much does it cost to hire a wedding marquee?



Weddings, in general, have many variables. The same applies to marquees.

There are many factors to consider, including size, furniture, lighting, and flooring for each wedding.

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

Contact us today.

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



This is no trouble.

The marquees are easy to transport, and we can move them into almost any site.

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 will inspect the site and advise you on the best course of action.

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?



Matting can improve the look of the setup, but may not be suitable for all events.

We usually recommend matting for weddings for this reason and also because high heels on grass can be uncomfortable and unpleasant.

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.

Do you hire linen, cutlery, generators or toilets?

We have generators, as well as luxury toilets, that can be included.

Unfortunately, we do not hire kitchen equipment.

What is included in the initial quote?



The cost of the marquee (sized to suit), lighting, internal power distribution (sockets, bar, catering, etc.), heating, lining, doors, windows and flooring (sized to suit), will all be included in the quote.

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 will need to assess the size and environment of the location to make sure the site is suitable for a marquee.

Are your marquees lined?



Not necessarily.

However, we can line them if you want.

What about electricity?



Usually, marquees don’t require a lot of electricity; which can be drawn from any nearby building.

A generator might be needed for backup power.

For further questions about hiring a marquee or party tent please contact us.

Can I decorate the Wedding marquee myself?



Of course!

We are committed to giving you the wedding you want.

We will provide any necessary advice.

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



This depends on your area

Let us know your area, and we will provide suggestions for wedding marquee locations.

How many guests can I seat around a table?



The maximum guests for a table is 12 and the minimum is 6.

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