Wedding Marquee Hire FAQ’s
What are your top tips for couples on deciding if a marquee is right for the day?
When choosing between different marquees, there are some things you should keep in mind, like where you want to have the wedding, how involved you want to be in the wedding plans, if you have a venue that needs alteration, and whether you have faith in the company that’s applying your marquees.
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. However, it is important to put certain factors like weather and site factors into consideration.
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?
Warmth shouldn’t be a problem.
We will have no trouble ensuring your guests are warm throughout the ceremony.
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?
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 advisable to check the weather for any dates you’re considering for your wedding.
Are your marquees waterproof?
Yes, but it is important to note that without good soil conditions, heavy rain could cause ground-level water seepage.
A safe but expensive alternative is to opt for a hard floor with carpet.
How far in advance of the wedding date do I need to hire the marquee?
This can vary so it’s hard to say for sure.
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?
The time will depend on the size of the marquee.
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 can help you choose the size once you tell us how many guests you’ll have, and whether you want a dance floor, DJ area or bar as well.
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?
We recommend that you have a generator on standby in case of power failure.
Do uplighters provide enough light?

Does Strawberry Marquees have insurance cover?
Strawberry Marquees are covered for public and product insurance.

Could a marquee damage cables or pipes running underneath?
Damage might be caused to drainage cables or pipes by the steel pegs used to secure the marquee.
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.
Although the grass underneath the marquee can fade, it will not take long to get back to the way it was before.

Access to the marquee site is restricted, is this a problem?
Not at all.

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.
During the site visit, we will access the ground and let you know if a particular surface is suitable.
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.
Matting is usually needed for a dance floor, but not necessarily for a catering tent.
Should I cut the grass?
This is possible but do it in advance to make sure that it doesn’t stick to the marquee surface, and if you’re not using matting, take away the cuttings.
Do you decorate the wedding marquees?
Do you hire linen, cutlery, generators or toilets?
Generators and luxury toilets can be made available as well as the marquees.
We do not have kitchen equipment to hire, however.
