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?



You can use a marquee for a wedding at any time the year. Nevertheless, you should remember things like the weather and the location when making your plans.

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?



Yes.

We can take steps to make sure your friends and family are nice and cosy throughout the wedding, no matter what the season.

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?



Heavy rain and wind can make an outdoor event unpleasant, noisy, muddy, and harsher weather can even damage the marquee itself.

Make sure you don’t commit to a wedding date before double-checking the weather forecast.

Are your marquees waterproof?



The marquee itself is waterproof, but if there is a lot of rain and less-than-sturdy ground, the floor could become wet.

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?



The time will depend on the size of the marquee.

Usually, the marquee is set up between one and three days before the event it’s needed for and is taken down a day after the event.

How do I know what size of marquee I’ll need for my wedding?



We can help you choose the size once you tell us how many guests you’ll have, and whether you want a dance floor, DJ area or bar as well.

How much room does a disco take up?



One side of the dance floor should have a width of 5 feet.

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 are appropriate if you want a simple atmospheric effect.

They don’t have enough light for a well-lit party.

How safe are your wedding marquees?



They are fully fire resistant.

The materials they are made from are all created to British Standard specifications.

Does Strawberry Marquees have insurance cover?



Strawberry Marquees are 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?



Drainage cables or pipes under the ground could be damaged by the steel pegs used to secure the marquee.

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

Will your marquees damage our garden?



There will be no damage that remains in the long-term.

The grass might fade beneath the marquee, but this should go back to normal afterward.

How much does it cost to hire a wedding marquee?



Weddings, in general, have many variables. This is also the case marquees.

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

Our service can provide all you might want for your wedding.

For a complete and accurate quote, get in contact today.

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



It’s not a problem.

We have no difficulty moving our marquees into most sites, as they are easily portable.

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?



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

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.

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.

We usually recommend matting for weddings for this reason and also because high heels on grass can be uncomfortable and unpleasant.

Dance floors should be supported by matting, but a catering tent might be able to go without.

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?



We do.

Do you hire linen, cutlery, generators or toilets?

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

We do not, however, hire kitchen equipment.

What is included in the initial quote?



We can include the cost of the marquee (sized to suit), lighting, internal power distribution (sockets for charging, bar catering, and other
features), heating, ivory lining, doors, windows and flooring (sized to suit) in the initial quote.

You can tell us if there are any other finishes or equipment on your wish list.

When is site meeting necessary?



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

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.

You can do the lined marquee if you want.

What about electricity?



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

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!

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?



The best venue may be determined by where you live.

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?



A table can take as many as 12 guests and as few as 6 guests.

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