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?



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?



No matter the season, you may be able to use a marquee. However, you should take note of anything that might be an issue, such as the weather forecast for the day and the suitability of the site.

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 make sure your guests are comfortable in colder weather.

We charge based on the amount of fuel use and not the number of heating units – so in the colder weather, we equip the marquee with more heaters and also have a back-up unit always at the ready.

How will the wedding marquee cope with at adverse weather conditions?



The marquee may not be able to withstand very harsh weather, and windy and rainy conditions can make for an unpleasant outdoor experience.

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.

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?



The perfect time for a booking is difficult to determine.

However, if you have a date in mind, you should inform us so that we can let you know if it is available and when a date is selling out so you can secure it if you wish.

How long does it take to erect a wedding marquee?



Each size of marquee takes a different time.

The marquee should be in place between one and three days before the wedding and will be removed the day afterward.

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



We will need details on your guest list, as well as additions like whether you want a dance floor, bar, or DJ area, before determining the possible size.

How much room does a disco take up?



Allow five foot along the width of one side of a dance floor.

Do we need a generator?



Certainly.

We recommend that you have a generator on standby in case of power failure.

Do uplighters provide enough light?



They’re nice to use for lighting effects.

But they will not be very bright.

How safe are your wedding marquees?



The marquees are completely fire resistant.

They are made from materials that conform to British Standard specifications.

Does Strawberry Marquees have insurance cover?



Strawberry Marquees are covered for public and product insurance.

The customer is required to provide coverage for any damage to the marquee and equipment, and coverage theft, while responsible for the marquee.

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 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. Marquee should be considered in the same way.

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

We can meet all your requirements for your ideal wedding ceremony.

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

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



This is totally fine.

Our marquees are highly portable, and we can access most areas without difficulty.

However, there is an extra charge added if your site is very difficult to access or is more than 25m from the nearest available access point.

How much space will I need to set up my Wedding Marquee?



The size will vary according to your guest list, bar, band, and whether you want a dance floor.

We would advise you on what to do after inspecting the site.

What surface is suitable for my wedding marquee?



The marquee must be secured to the ground, although this still allows us to set up on various surfaces.

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

Do I need matting?



Matting can improve the look of the setup, but may not be suitable for all events.

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

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?



We do.

Do you hire linen, cutlery, generators or toilets?

We have luxury toilets and generators available as well as our marquees.

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).

Additional finishes and equipment are up to you.

When is site meeting necessary?



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

We will evaluate the environment to see if it will work for a marquee and check the size.

Are your marquees lined?



Not always.

Lined marquees are available for those who prefer them.

What about electricity?



Marquees do not generally need much electricity, and you can get power from the building nearby.

You might need a backup generator.

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

Can I decorate the Wedding marquee myself?



By all means.

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

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.

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.

Nevertheless, you have the power to determine the seating arrangements as a client.
