Marquee flooring

Citing a marquee on grass is the cheapest option for flooring, but there are several different flooring types you can choose from. It’s not always possible to erect the marquee at a grassy location, and besides, some couples in Rye don’t want a grass floor. Matting is the most popular option because it is versatile, durable and simple. Coconut matting, or simply matting, is traditional coir floor mats, manufactured from coconut husk.

Other options you can choose from include:

  • Carpet on hard flooring
  • Hard flooring
  • Wooden hard flooring

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?



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?



Marquees can be used all year-round weddings. But it’s still important to consider whether the site and the weather on the day will be suitable.

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?



You can make sure your marquee is warm enough of.

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

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?



In extreme conditions, traditional marquees may not hold up, while on a smaller scale, torrential rain and windy conditions can result in a noisy marquee and muddy grounds in excess rain.

Because of this, you should make sure to check the weather that’s been forecast before you choose your wedding 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?



it can be hard to judge when 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.

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?



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?



A good measurement is to allow 5 foot for the width of one side of the dance floor.

Do we need a generator?



Absolutely.

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.

For bright lighting, additional lights will be required.

Our marquees are 100% fire resistant.

They are constructed solely from materials that meet British Standard specifications.

Does Strawberry Marquees have insurance cover?



Strawberry Marquees are covered for public and product insurance.

If there any underground services, you should tell us in advance so we can avoid them.

Will your marquees damage our garden?



There is no reason to be worried about lasting damage.

There might be some fading of the grass under the marquee, but they should return to the colour scheme.

Get in touch for a complete quote.

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.

Customers should note, however, that very difficult access or a site that is more than 25m from the access point will mean an additional charge.

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 perform site inspections to offer you advice on your marquee choice.

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 tell you if the site is suitable after we check it as part of the site visit.

Do I need matting?



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

Because of this, and because it allows for the use of high heels, we generally recommend matting for weddings.

Dance floors should be supported by matting, but a catering tent might be able to go without.

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?



Yes.

Do you hire linen, cutlery, generators or toilets?

Along with marquees, we have generators and luxury toilets.

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.

Your choice and needs will dictate all other finishes and equipment.

When is site meeting necessary?



The site visit must take place right after you have received your quote.

The site must be inspected to measure its size and also determine if it is a good environment for a marquee.

Are your marquees lined?



Not all of them.

You can do the lined marquee if you want.

What about electricity?



Usually, marquees don’t require a lot of electricity; which can be drawn from any nearby building.

A generator might be needed for backup power.

For further questions about hiring a marquee or party tent please contact us.

Can I decorate the Wedding marquee myself?



You certainly can.

We are committed to giving you the wedding you want.

Any advice needed can be given.

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



This depends on where you live.

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?



The maximum guests for a table is 12 and the minimum is 6.

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