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?
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. Nevertheless, you should remember things like the weather and the location when making your plans.
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?
Warmth shouldn’t be a problem.
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?
The marquee may not be able to withstand very harsh weather, and windy and rainy conditions can make for an unpleasant outdoor experience.
It is advisable to check the weather for any dates you’re considering for your wedding.
Are your marquees waterproof?
The marquees are waterproof but if there is heavy rain and poor soil, water might seep in underneath.
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?
This can vary so it’s hard to say for sure.
All the same, you should let us know if you have a date you want for the wedding, as we can tell you if the day is open.
How long does it take to erect a wedding marquee?
The time will depend on the size of the marquee.
The marquee is put up around 1 to 3 days before the event takes place and left for a day after.
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?
It is recommended you have a generator ready to take over in case there a power cut.
Do uplighters provide enough light?
Uplighters are good for creating a simple atmosphere.
For bright lighting, additional lights will be required.
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 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 is no fear of permanent damage.
The colour of the grass under the marquee may fade slightly but should revert quickly.
How much does it cost to hire a wedding marquee?
Each wedding has different considerations. This is also the case marquees.

Get in touch for a complete quote.
Access to the marquee site is restricted, is this a problem?
This is totally fine.
We can move the marquees into most sites without any issues.
However, we will add a charge for any site that is very difficult to access or is over 25m from the access point.
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 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
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.
Dance floors should be supported by matting, but a catering tent might be able to go without.
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, we do.
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?
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?
A site visit is necessary immediately after you receive a quote.
We need to measure the site and check whether it is suitable for a marquee.
Are your marquees lined?
No, they don’t need to be.
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.
A generator might be needed for backup power.
Please contact us if you have any questions about hiring a marquee or party tent.
Can I decorate the Wedding marquee myself?
It is our job to make your wedding as memorable as possible.
You can rely on us for advice and assistance.
Can you suggest venues where to set up my Wedding Marquee?
This depends on your area
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?
6 to 12 is the usual number of guests for a table.
However, as the client, you can determine the seating arrangements if you wish.
