Wedding Marquee Hire FAQ’s


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



When choosing between different marquees, there are some things you should keep in mind, like where you want to have the wedding, how involved you want to be in the wedding plans, if you have a venue that needs alteration, and whether you have faith in the company that’s applying your marquees.

What styles of wedding marquee are available?



You can choose between marquee styles such as modern, bespoke, and luxury wedding marquees, as well as canopy, frame, entrance, and heated marquees, and sizes between 3.6m² and 9x27m.

Can marquees be used all year-round for weddings?



You can use a marquee for a wedding at any time the year. Don’t forget to consider planning aspects like the weather and the site at which the wedding will be held.

This way, a venue or site that is particularly exposed to prevailing winds will not be suitable and an alternative location can be considered.

Is it possible to ensure that marquees are warm enough for winter weddings?



You can make sure your marquee is warm enough of.

We will have no trouble ensuring your guests are warm throughout the ceremony.

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.

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.

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?



We cannot tell you how early you should make the booking.

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?



This will be determined by the marquee size.

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?



You will need to provide your full guest list and other information including if you want a dance floor, bar, DJ area, etc which will then be used to determine the marquee size that will be most appropriate.

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?



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?



Our marquees are totally fire resistant.

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

Does Strawberry Marquees have insurance cover?



Strawberry Marquees are covered for public and product insurance.

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?



Damage might be caused to drainage cables or pipes 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 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. The same can be said for marquees.

Aspects such as size, furniture, lighting, and flooring can be different for each person.

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?



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?



Your guest list, bar, dance floor, and band will affect the space needed.

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.

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

Do I need matting?



This will vary depending on the event, but matting generally looks preferable.

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?



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?



We do.

Do you hire linen, cutlery, generators or toilets?

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

However, we do not have kitchen equipment for hire.

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?



A site visit is necessary immediately after you receive 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?



They do not need to be lined.

If you want, however, you may choose to have it lined.

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.

For further information about our party tents and marquees, don’t hesitate to get in contact.

Can I decorate the Wedding marquee myself?



Absolutely.

We want your wedding to be remembered just the way you want.

We will provide any necessary advice.

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



This will vary depending on location.

Contact us with your location and we will give you suggestions on great locations for erecting a wedding marquee.

How many guests can I seat around a table?



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

If you want a different seating plan, you can choose to change it.
