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?
There isn’t a reason why marquees cannot be used throughout the year for weddings. Don’t forget to consider planning aspects like the weather and the site at which the wedding will be held.
These preparations can help you see whether you might need to change the site of the marquee if it’s in an area with too much wind.
Is it possible to ensure that marquees are warm enough for winter weddings?
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?
The marquee may not be able to withstand very harsh weather, and windy and rainy conditions can make for an unpleasant outdoor experience.
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.
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?
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?
This will vary depending on size.
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?
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?
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?
Uplighters are good for creating a simple atmosphere.
For bright lighting, additional lights will be required.
How safe are your wedding marquees?
The marquees are completely fire resistant.
We only use materials that meet British Standard certifications when making them.
Does Strawberry Marquees have insurance cover?
Our insurance covers 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?
We use steel pegs to keep the marquee stable and these could damage drainage cables or pipes under the ground.
Make sure to tell us if there are any underground services we should avoid.
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?
There are different aspects of every wedding. This is also the case marquees.
There are many factors to consider, including size, furniture, lighting, and flooring for each wedding.

Access to the marquee site is restricted, is this a problem?
Our marquees are highly portable, and we can access most areas without difficulty.
However, we will add a charge for any site that is very difficult to access or is over 25m from the 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?
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?
You will need to decide whether matting suits your event, but it can the better.
We usually recommend matting for weddings for this reason and also because high heels on grass can be uncomfortable and unpleasant.
If you have a dance floor you will need matting, but you can choose whether you want it for your catering tent.
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?
Do you hire linen, cutlery, generators or toilets?
We have luxury toilets and generators available as well as our marquees.
We do not have kitchen equipment to hire, however.
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.
Your choice and needs will dictate all other finishes and equipment.
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?
Not all of them.
If you prefer a lined marquee you can select one.
What about electricity?
You will not need much power for your marquee; it can be supplied by a building close by.
A generator might be needed for backup power.

Can I decorate the Wedding marquee myself?
We want your wedding to be remembered just the way you want.
