Wedding Marquee Hire FAQ’s
What are your top tips for couples on deciding if a marquee is right for the day?
Before selecting a marquee, make sure to consider different factors, including your location, your budget, your involvement in the planning, whether you want to change anything about the venue, and whether you think your marquee supplier is reliable.
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?
Marquees can be used at any wedding season. However, it is important to put certain factors like weather and site factors into consideration.
These preparations can help you see whether you might need to change the site of the marquee if it’s in an area with too much wind.
Is it possible to ensure that marquees are warm enough for winter weddings?
We are more than capable of keeping your guests warm throughout the ceremony in colder months.
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?
Heavy rain and wind can make an outdoor event unpleasant, noisy, muddy, and harsher weather can even damage the marquee itself.
It is therefore important to check the weather forecast before setting a date.
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.
A possible option is to add a hard floor and a carpet, although this could put you over-budget.
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.
However, telling us the date you’re planning can help us plan, as we will be able to tell you if the date is available.
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?
There are various factors affecting the size including whether you want a dance floor, bar, DJ area, as well as guest list, which we will need.
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?
We advise that you provide a generator in case there’s an issue with power supply.
Do uplighters provide enough light?
Uplighters are perfect for an atmospheric feeling to your event.
They are unsuitable for a brightly lit event.
How safe are your wedding marquees?
The marquees are completely fire resistant.
British Standard specifications are used for all the materials used to make them.
Does Strawberry Marquees have insurance cover?
Public and product insurance are both included in Strawberry Marquees’ coverage.
Additional coverage for theft and damage to the marquee or equipment must be provided by the customer for the period of hire.
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.
It’s important to let us know if there are any services underground that we should avoid.
Will your marquees damage our garden?
There’s no loss and damage.
The grass in the space under the marquee might fade, but this will go back to normal quite quickly.
How much does it cost to hire a wedding marquee?
Weddings can vary a great deal. The same applies to marquees.
Aspects such as size, furniture, lighting, and flooring can be different for each person.
Strawberry Marquees provides everything you need for the perfect wedding ceremony.
Contact us today for an accurate quote.
Access to the marquee site is restricted, is this a problem?
This is no trouble.
We can move the marquees into most sites without any issues.
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?
Your guest list, bar, dance floor, and band will affect the space needed.
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
During the site visit, we will access the ground and let you know if a particular surface is suitable.
Do I need matting?
The ground might look better with matting, but this is up to you.
Matting is recommended for weddings, both for this and because it makes wearing high heels more comfortable.
Matting is usually needed for a dance floor, but not necessarily for a catering tent.
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, we do.
Do you hire linen, cutlery, generators or toilets?
Along with marquees, we have generators and luxury toilets.
We do not, however, hire kitchen equipment.
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).
All other finishes and equipment are subject to choice and necessity.
When is site meeting necessary?
We must perform a site visit as soon as you get a quote.
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?
If you prefer a lined marquee you can select one.
What about electricity?
Any close-by building should be able to provide power, as you will not need much.
You might need a backup generator.
Please contact us if you have any questions about hiring a marquee or party tent.
Can I decorate the Wedding marquee myself?
You certainly can.
It is our job to make your wedding as memorable as possible.
We will provide any necessary advice.
Can you suggest venues where to set up my Wedding Marquee?
This will vary depending on 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?
You can have between 6 and 12 people to a single table.
If you want a different seating plan, you can choose to change it.
