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?



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?



There isn’t a reason why marquees cannot be used throughout the year for weddings. Nevertheless, you should remember things like the weather and the location when making your plans.

By checking these things in advance, you can make sure that you don’t choose a site with very strong winds and you have the option to change locations.

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



Warmth shouldn’t be a problem.

We will have no trouble ensuring your guests are warm throughout the ceremony.

Because we only charge for the amount fuel used and not for the number of units, we always provide as many units as you need for heating and we also have a backup available.

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



Muddy conditions and rain on top of the marquee can be unpleasant, and severe weather can even cause damage to the marquee.

It is advisable to check the weather for any dates you’re considering for your wedding.

Are your marquees waterproof?



They are but the ground itself presents water risk in the event of heavy rain and less than optimal soil conditions.

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?



The perfect time for a booking is difficult to determine.

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?



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?



Make sure the dance floor has five foot of width on 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 can create a nice effect.

But they will not be very bright.

How safe are your wedding marquees?



Our marquees are 100% fire resistant.

They are made from materials that conform to British Standard specifications.

Does Strawberry Marquees have insurance cover?



Yes, we have public and product insurance.

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?



The steel pegs used to secure the marquee in the ground can cause damage to underground drainage cables or pipes.

Any underground services of this nature mean you must inform us so we can avoid them.

Will your marquees damage our garden?



There is no reason to be worried about lasting 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. The same can be said for marquees.

Aspects such as size, furniture, lighting, and flooring can be different for each person.

We can give you everything you need for your dream wedding.

Get in touch for a complete quote.

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



This is no trouble.

Our marquees are highly portable, and we can access most areas without difficulty.

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?



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?



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 will tell you if the site is suitable after we check it as part of the site visit.

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.

A typical dance floor requires matting, while catering tents do not unless specifically requested for.

Should I cut the grass?



This can be a good idea, but it must be removed if you are not using matting and it might stick to the marquee if you cut it too close to the wedding date.

Do you decorate the wedding marquees?



Certainly.

Do you hire linen, cutlery, generators or toilets?

Generators and luxury toilets can be made available as well as the marquees.

We do not have kitchen equipment to hire, however.

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?



Once you have received the quote, that visit must take place as soon as possible.

We will evaluate the environment to see if it will work for a marquee and check the size.

Are your marquees lined?



Not all of them.

However, we can line them if you want.

What about electricity?



Usually, marquees don’t require a lot of electricity; which can be drawn from any nearby building.

A backup generator might be required.

Please contact us if you have any questions about hiring a marquee or party tent.

Can I decorate the Wedding marquee myself?



Of course!

Your wedding should be designed as you want it to be, and it’s our job to make that happen.

You can rely on us for advice and assistance.

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



This is dependent on your exact 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?



6 to 12 is the usual number of guests for a table.

Still, you can decide on the seating arrangements you want.
