Wedding Marquee Hire FAQ’s


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



Before selecting a marquee, make sure to consider different factors, including your location, your budget, your involvement in the planning, whether you want to change anything about the venue, and whether you think your marquee supplier is reliable.

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?



There isn’t a reason why marquees cannot be used throughout the year for weddings. 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 can take steps to make sure your friends and family are nice and cosy throughout the wedding, no matter what the season.

Our heating charges are based on fuel, not on the heating units, and so we always have extra heaters, as well as a backup ready to go.

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.

Because of this, you should make sure to check the weather that’s been forecast before you choose your wedding date.

Are your marquees waterproof?



They are, but in extreme rain and bad soil conditions, water is likely to seep under the marquee.

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?



it can be hard to judge when 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?



Each size of marquee takes a different time.

The marquee is generally erected on to three days in advance and taking down a day after the event takes place.

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?



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

Do we need a generator?



Yes.

It is recommended you have a generator ready to take over in case there a power cut.

Do uplighters provide enough light?



Uplighters are perfect for an atmospheric feeling to your event.

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

How safe are your wedding marquees?



The marquees are completely fire resistant.

They are constructed solely from materials that meet British Standard specifications.

Does Strawberry Marquees have insurance cover?



Yes, we have 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.

If there any underground services, you should tell us in advance so we can avoid them.

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.

Contact us today.

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



This is no trouble.

We can easily move the marquees into almost any location, as they are designed to be portable.

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?



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

After inspecting the site, we can help you decide.

What surface is suitable for my wedding marquee?



The marquee must be secured to the ground, although this still allows us to set up on various surfaces.

Part of the site visit involves checking the ground to make sure it’s suitable.

Do I need matting?



You will need to decide whether matting suits your event, but it can the better.

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

You will need matting for a dance floor, although you might not need it 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?



Always.

Do you hire linen, cutlery, generators or toilets?

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

Kitchen equipment, however, is unavailable.

What is included in the initial quote?



The initial quote for a wedding marquee includes the marquee (sized to suit), lighting, internal power distribution (sockets for charging, bar, catering and other features), heating, softly pleated ivory lining, doors, windows and flooring (sized to suit).

Your choice and needs will dictate all other finishes and equipment.

When is site meeting necessary?



The site visit must take place right after you have received your quote.

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.

Lined marquees are available for those who prefer them.

What about electricity?



Power can be sourced from a building nearby, as you should not need very much.

You might need a backup generator.

For further information about our party tents and marquees, don’t hesitate to get in contact.

Can I decorate the Wedding marquee myself?



Absolutely.

It is our job to make your wedding as memorable as possible.

Any advice needed can be given.

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



This depends on where you live.

Once you give us your location, we can advise you as to the best location for the wedding marquee.

How many guests can I seat around a table?



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

However, as the client, you can determine the seating arrangements if you wish.
