Wedding Marquee Hire FAQ’s


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



When looking at different marquees, make sure to keep things in mind like your budget, location, the venue, whether you need to make changes to the function space, and whether you are assured that you have the right marquee supplier.

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?



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 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?



Yes.

Cold weather isn’t any bother, and the loved ones you’ve invited can be kept comfortable even in winter.

Our heating charges are based on fuel, not on the heating units, and so we always have extra heaters, as well as a backup ready to go.

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.

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.

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?



Each size of marquee takes a different time.

The marquee should be in place between one and three days before the wedding and will be removed the day afterward.

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?



You do need one.

It is our recommendation that a generator is made available, in case there is a power failure.

Do uplighters provide enough light?



Uplighters are appropriate if you want a simple atmospheric effect.

They are unable to provide very bright light, however.

How safe are your wedding marquees?



They are entirely fire resistant.

We only use materials that meet British Standard certifications when making them.

Does Strawberry Marquees have insurance cover?



Strawberry Marquees are covered for public and product insurance.

While the marquee is under hire, the customer must provide insurance for damage, both for the marquee and equipment, and theft.

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.

It’s important to let us know if there are any services underground that we should avoid.

Will your marquees damage our garden?



There is no reason to be worried about lasting 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?



There are different aspects of every wedding. The same applies to marquees.

Size, furniture, lighting, and flooring can change for every client.

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

Contact us today for an accurate quote.

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.

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?



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

After inspecting the site, we can help you decide.

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

We will check the ground during our site visit and tell you whether it will work.

Do I need matting?



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

We advise matting for weddings, as it can allow high heels to be worn more easily.

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?



Certainly.

Do you hire linen, cutlery, generators or toilets?

Along with marquees, we have generators and luxury toilets.

Kitchen equipment, however, is unavailable.

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

Are your marquees lined?



Not necessarily.

You can do the lined marquee if you want.

What about electricity?



Power can be sourced from a building nearby, as you should not need very much.

A generator might be needed for backup power.

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

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.

We will assist and advise you when necessary.

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



This is dependent on your exact location.

Let us know your area, and we will provide suggestions for wedding marquee locations.

How many guests can I seat around a table?



Tables seat between 6 and 12 guests.

Nevertheless, you have the power to determine the seating arrangements as a client.
