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 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?
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.
If anything about the wedding is unsuited to a marquee, such as exposure to strong winds, you can plan for a change in location.
Is it possible to ensure that marquees are warm enough for winter weddings?
Warmth shouldn’t be a problem.
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?
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.
It is therefore important to check the weather forecast before setting a date.
Are your marquees waterproof?
Yes, but it is important to note that without good soil conditions, heavy rain could cause ground-level water seepage.
You can add hard floor and carpet, but this can be expensive.
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.
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?
This will be determined by the marquee size.
The erection usually ranges between 1-3 days before the event and the marquee is left for an additional day after the event.
How do I know what size of marquee I’ll need for my wedding?
You will need to provide your full guest list and other information including if you want a dance floor, bar, DJ area, etc which will then be used to determine the marquee size that will be most appropriate.
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?
We recommend that you have a generator on standby in case of power failure.
Do uplighters provide enough light?
They’re nice to use for lighting effects.
But they will not be very bright.
How safe are your wedding marquees?
The marquees are completely fire resistant.
They are made from materials that conform to British Standard specifications.
Does Strawberry Marquees have insurance cover?
We’re covered for 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?

There’s no loss and damage.
The grass might fade beneath the marquee, but this should go back to normal afterward.

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?
Your guest list, bar, dance floor, and band will affect the space needed.
We perform site inspections to offer you advice on your marquee choice.
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?
The ground might look better with matting, but this is up to you.
For this reason and because it can make it much easier to wear high heels, we generally advise matting for weddings.
Matting is usually needed for a dance floor, but not necessarily for a catering tent.
Should I cut the grass?
You can, but be sure to cart away the cuttings and if you’re not using matting, avoid cutting it too close to the event as the grass tends to stick to the marquee surface.
Do you decorate the wedding marquees?
Do you hire linen, cutlery, generators or toilets?
Along with marquees, we have generators and luxury toilets.
We do not, however, hire kitchen equipment.
What is included in the initial quote?
Our first quote will cover your marquee, lighting, internal power distribution (sockets for charging, bar catering, and other features), heating, 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 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 all of them.
If you want, however, you may choose to have it lined.
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.

Can I decorate the Wedding marquee myself?
By all means.
It is our job to make your wedding as memorable as possible.
