Wedding Marquee Hire FAQ’s
What are your top tips for couples on deciding if a marquee is right for the day?
When looking at different marquees, make sure to keep things in mind like your budget, location, the venue, whether you need to make changes to the function space, and whether you are assured that you have the right 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?
No matter the season, you may be able to use a marquee. Don’t forget to consider planning aspects like the weather and the site at which the wedding will be held.
This can give you the chance to choose a new location if you were planning to put the marquee in the spot that is exposed to a lot of wind.
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.
Because we only charge for the amount fuel used and not for the number of units, we always provide as many units as you need for heating and we also have a backup available.
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.
Make sure you don’t commit to a wedding date before double-checking the weather forecast.
Are your marquees waterproof?
The marquees are waterproof but if there is heavy rain and poor soil, water might seep in underneath.
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?
It is difficult to advise on how early a booking needs to be made.
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?
This depends on the size of the marquee you wish to use.
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?
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?
One side of the dance floor should have a width of 5 feet.
Do we need a generator?
We recommend that you have a generator on standby in case of power failure.
Do uplighters provide enough light?
Uplighters can create a nice effect.
But they will not be very bright.
How safe are your wedding marquees?
Our marquees are totally fire resistant.
They are made from materials that conform to British Standard specifications.
Does Strawberry Marquees have insurance cover?
Our insurance covers public and product insurance.
While the marquee is under hire, the customer must provide insurance for damage, both for the marquee and equipment, and theft.
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.
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.
There might be some fading of the grass under the marquee, but they should return to the colour scheme.
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.
Our service can provide all you might want for your wedding.
Contact us today for an accurate quote.
Access to the marquee site is restricted, is this a problem?
This is no trouble.
We have no difficulty moving our marquees into most sites, as they are easily portable.
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 can offer advice and guidance once we inspect the site.
What surface is suitable for my wedding marquee?
It is important that the ground allows us to secure the marquee to it directly but there are many surfaces which will allow this.
We will check the ground during our site visit and tell you whether it will work.
Do I need matting?
You will need to decide whether matting suits your event, but it can the better.
Matting is recommended for weddings, both for this and because it makes wearing high heels more comfortable.
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?
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 initial quote should include the marquee of the size you choose, lighting, internal power distribution including sockets, bar, catering, etc., heating, lining, doors, windows and the correct size of floor.
All other finishes and equipment are subject to choice and necessity.
When is site meeting necessary?
this is done right after you get the quote.
We will evaluate the environment to see if it will work for a marquee and check the size.
Are your marquees lined?
If you prefer a lined marquee you can select one.
What about electricity?
Power can be sourced from a building nearby, as you should not need very much.
A backup generator might be required.
For further information about our party tents and marquees, don’t hesitate to get in contact.
Can I decorate the Wedding marquee myself?
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?
The best venue may be determined by where you live.
Once you give us your location, we can advise you as to the best location for the wedding marquee.
How many guests can I seat around a table?
You can have between 6 and 12 people to a single table.
Still, you can decide on the seating arrangements you want.
