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?



You can choose between marquee styles such as modern, bespoke, and luxury wedding marquees, as well as canopy, frame, entrance, and heated marquees, and sizes between 3.6m² and 9x27m.

Can marquees be used all year-round for weddings?



No matter the season, you may be able to use a marquee. 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?



It is certainly possible.

We can make sure your guests are comfortable in colder weather.

There will be a number of heating units, including a backup, to keep you warm, and only charged on a fuel basis and not per unit.

How will the wedding marquee cope with at adverse weather conditions?



If the weather is unusually bad, the marquee might be damaged and even wind and rain can make conditions unpleasant with noise and mud.

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.

A possible option is to add a hard floor and a carpet, although this could put you over-budget.

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.

Still, if you tell us the date you are planning for the wedding, we can tell you whether this is available, and you can book it if you want.

How long does it take to erect a wedding marquee?



The time will depend on the size of the marquee.

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?



The size will depend on whether you want a dance floor, DJ area or bar, as well as your guest list.

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?



Yes.

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

Do uplighters provide enough light?



Uplighters can create a nice effect.

They are unsuitable for a brightly lit event.

How safe are your wedding marquees?



Our marquees are 100% 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.

Additional coverage for theft and damage to the marquee or equipment must be provided by the customer for the period of hire.

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.

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

Will your marquees damage our garden?



There’s no loss and damage.

The grass in the space under the marquee might fade, but this will go back to normal quite quickly.

How much does it cost to hire a wedding marquee?



Weddings can vary a great deal. This is also the case marquees.

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

We can meet all your requirements for your ideal wedding ceremony.

Contact us today for an accurate quote.

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



Not at all.

We can move the marquees into most sites without any issues.

However, a site that’s over 25m from the access point or has a tricky access point 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 would advise you on what to do after inspecting the site.

What surface is suitable for my wedding marquee?



Although marquees can be set up on different surfaces, we do need to secure them 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.

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?



Certainly.

Do you hire linen, cutlery, generators or toilets?

Along with marquees, we have generators and luxury toilets.

However, we do not have kitchen equipment for hire.

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?



this is done right after you get the quote.

The marquee needs a site that is the right size and has the right environment, both of which will be checked at the inspection.

Are your marquees lined?



No, they don’t need to be.

Lined marquees are available for those who prefer them.

What about electricity?



You will not need much power for your marquee; it can be supplied by a building close by.

A generator might be needed for backup power.

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

Can I decorate the Wedding marquee myself?



Of course!

We are committed to giving you the wedding you want.

Any advice needed can be given.

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



This is dependent on your exact location.

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?



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.
