Wedding Marquee Hire FAQ’s


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



In order to know if a marquee is right for your day, you have to consider several factors including: your budget, if you have a special location in mind, if you want to be involved in the entire process, if you want to have the freedom to change the size of your function space, and if you are confident about your choice of marquee supplier.

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?



Marquees can be used at any wedding season. Don’t forget to consider planning aspects like the weather and the site at which the wedding will be held.

This can give you the chance to choose a new location if you were planning to put the marquee in the spot that is exposed to a lot of wind.

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



It is certainly possible.

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?



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?



The marquee itself is waterproof, but if there is a lot of rain and less-than-sturdy ground, the floor could become wet.

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?



This can vary so it’s hard to say for sure.

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 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?



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?



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

Do we need a generator?



You do need one.

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

Do uplighters provide enough light?



Uplighters are perfect for an atmospheric feeling to your event.

They are unsuitable for a brightly lit event.

How safe are your wedding marquees?



Our marquees are totally fire resistant.

British Standard specifications are used for all the materials used to make them.

Does Strawberry Marquees have insurance cover?



Public and product insurance are both included in Strawberry Marquees’ coverage.

During the hire period, coverage for damage to the marquee and equipment as well as theft is the responsibility of the customer.

Could a marquee damage cables or pipes running underneath?



We use steel pegs to keep the marquee stable and these could damage drainage cables or pipes under the ground.

Make sure to tell us if there are any underground services we should avoid.

Will your marquees damage our garden?



There is no fear of permanent 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?



Each wedding has different considerations. The same can be said for marquees.

Every client has their own needs regarding things like size, furniture, lighting, and flooring.

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 totally fine.

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

Customers should note, however, that very difficult access or a site that is more than 25m from the access point will mean an additional charge.

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



This will vary depending on your guest list, bar, dance floor, and band.

We can offer advice and guidance once we inspect the site.

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 always check the ground during the site visit and will inform you as to its suitability.

Do I need matting?



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

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

You will need matting for a dance floor, although you might not need it for a catering tent.

Should I cut the grass?



This is possible but do it in advance to make sure that it doesn’t stick to the marquee surface, and if you’re not using matting, take away the cuttings.

Do you decorate the wedding marquees?



We do.

Do you hire linen, cutlery, generators or toilets?

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

Kitchen equipment, however, is unavailable.

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.

Your choice and needs will affect any other finishes or 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?



Not all of them.

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.

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

Can I decorate the Wedding marquee myself?



Certainly.

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

You can rely on us for advice and assistance.

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



This will vary depending on location.

We can offer suggestions on the best site for a wedding marquee after you have provided us with your location.

How many guests can I seat around a table?



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

If you want a different seating plan, you can choose to change it.
