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?
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.
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 can take steps to make sure your friends and family are nice and cosy throughout the wedding, no matter what the season.
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 therefore important to check the weather forecast before setting a date.
Are your marquees waterproof?
The marquees are waterproof but if there is heavy rain and poor soil, water might seep in underneath.
A safe but expensive alternative is to opt for a hard floor with carpet.
How far in advance of the wedding date do I need to hire the marquee?
It is difficult to advise on how early a booking needs to be made.
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?
Each size of marquee takes a different time.
The erection usually ranges between 1-3 days before the event and the marquee is left for an additional day after the event.
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?
A good measurement is to allow 5 foot for the width of one side of the dance floor.
Do we need a generator?
It is our recommendation that a generator is made available, in case there is a power failure.
Do uplighters provide enough light?
Uplighters are good for creating a simple atmosphere.
But they will not be very bright.
How safe are your wedding marquees?
Our marquees are 100% 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.
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 that we use to secure the marquee could cause damage to drainage cables or pipes that are under the ground nearby.
Make sure to tell us if there are any underground services we should avoid.
Will your marquees damage our garden?
There will be no damage that remains in the long-term.
There might be some fading of the grass under the marquee, but they should return to the colour scheme.
How much does it cost to hire a wedding marquee?
There are many different things to consider with each wedding. The same applies to marquees.
Aspects such as size, furniture, lighting, and flooring can be different for each person.

Access to the marquee site is restricted, is this a problem?
Not at all.
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?
It depends 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?
There are many suitable surfaces, but we must be able to secure the marquee directly to the ground
We will tell you if the site is suitable after we check it as part of the site visit.
Do I need matting?
The ground might look better with matting, but this is up to you.
We advise matting for weddings, as it can allow high heels to be worn more easily.
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?
Do you hire linen, cutlery, generators or toilets?
Generators and luxury toilets can be made available as well as the marquees.
Unfortunately, we do not hire kitchen equipment.
What is included in the initial quote?
Our initial quote should include the marquee of the size you choose, lighting, internal power distribution including sockets, bar, catering, etc., heating, lining, doors, windows and the correct size of floor.
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.
The site must be inspected to measure its size and also determine if it is a good environment for a marquee.
Are your marquees lined?
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.
For further questions about hiring a marquee or party tent please contact us.
Can I decorate the Wedding marquee myself?
Your wedding should be designed as you want it to be, and it’s our job to make that happen.
