Wedding Marquee Hire FAQ’s
What are your top tips for couples on deciding if a marquee is right for the day?
In order to know if a marquee is right for your day, you have to consider several factors including: your budget, if you have a special location in mind, if you want to be involved in the entire process, if you want to have the freedom to change the size of your function space, and if you are confident about your choice of 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?
Marquees can be used at any wedding season. 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?
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.
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?
We cannot tell you how early you should make the booking.
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?
This depends on the size of the marquee you wish to use.
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?
Make sure the dance floor has five foot of width on one side.
Do we need a generator?
In case of a power failure, you should always have a generator ready to go.
Do uplighters provide enough light?
They’re nice to use for lighting effects.
They don’t have enough light for a well-lit party.
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?
Yes, we have public and product insurance.
The customer is responsible for insurance cover against theft or damage of the marquee and associated equipment during the hire period.
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.
Any underground services of this nature mean you must inform us so we can avoid them.
Will your marquees damage our garden?
You do not have to worry about long-term damage.
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 can vary a great deal. Marquees can also vary.
Size, furniture, lighting, and flooring can change for every client.
Strawberry Marquees can give you everything you have imagined for your wedding.

Access to the marquee site is restricted, is this a problem?
It’s not a problem.
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?
This will vary depending on your guest list, bar, dance floor, and band.
We will inspect the site and advise you on the best course of action.
What surface is suitable for my wedding marquee?
Although marquees can be set up on different surfaces, we do need to secure them 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?
Generally, matting looks better, but it depends on your event.
We usually recommend matting for weddings for this reason and also because high heels on grass can be uncomfortable and unpleasant.
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?
We have generators, as well as luxury toilets, that can be included.
We do not have kitchen equipment to hire, however.
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.
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 need to assess the size and environment of the location to make sure the site is suitable for a marquee.
Are your marquees lined?
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.
For further questions about hiring a marquee or party tent please contact us.
Can I decorate the Wedding marquee myself?
It is our job to make your wedding as memorable as possible.
We will assist and advise you when necessary.
Can you suggest venues where to set up my Wedding Marquee?
The best venue may be determined by where you live.
