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 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?



You can use a marquee for a wedding at any time the year. But it’s still important to consider whether the site and the weather on the day will be suitable.

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 are more than capable of keeping your guests warm throughout the ceremony in colder months.

We always make sure there are plenty of heating units including a spare, and will only charge for the fuel, 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.

Checking the weather forecast before your wedding is therefore vital.

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.

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?



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?



This will vary depending on size.

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?



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?



You do need one.

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.

But they will not be very bright.

How safe are your wedding marquees?



They are fully fire resistant.

British Standard specifications are used for all the materials used to make them.

Does Strawberry Marquees have insurance cover?



We’re 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?



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

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

Will your marquees damage our garden?



There’s no loss and 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?



There are many different things to consider with each wedding. The same can be said for marquees.

Contact us today.

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



No.

We can easily move the marquees into almost any location, as they are designed to be portable.

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?



It depends on your guest list, bar, dance floor, and band.

We can offer advice and guidance once we inspect the site.

What surface is suitable for my wedding marquee?



While we can erect our marquees on different surfaces, it will still need to be secured to the ground directly.

Part of the site visit involves checking the ground to make sure it’s suitable.

Do I need matting?



Generally, matting looks better, but it depends on your event.

Because of this, and because it allows for the use of high heels, we generally recommend matting for weddings.

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

Should I cut the grass?



You can, but be sure to cart away the cuttings and if you’re not using matting, avoid cutting it too close to the event as the grass tends to stick to the marquee surface.

Do you decorate the wedding marquees?



Yes.

Do you hire linen, cutlery, generators or toilets?

We have generators, as well as luxury toilets, that can be included.

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.

Your choice and needs will affect any other finishes or equipment.

When is site meeting necessary?



A site visit is necessary immediately after you receive a quote.

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?



Any close-by building should be able to provide power, as you will not need much.

A generator may be required as backup.

Contact us with any other questions about one of our marquees or party tents.

Can I decorate the Wedding marquee myself?



By all means.

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

We will give you advice and assist you whenever you need it.

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



This depends on where you live.

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

How many guests can I seat around a table?



The maximum guests for a table is 12 and the minimum is 6.

However, as the client, you can determine the seating arrangements if you wish.
