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?



Marquees can be used all year-round weddings. However, you should take note of anything that might be an issue, such as the weather forecast for the day and the suitability of the site.

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 are more than capable of keeping your guests warm throughout the ceremony in colder months.

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.

It is advisable to check the weather for any dates you’re considering for your wedding.

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?



We cannot tell you how early you should make the booking.

All the same, you should let us know if you have a date you want for the wedding, as we can tell you if the day is open.

How long does it take to erect a wedding marquee?



Each size of marquee takes a different time.

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?



You will need to provide your full guest list and other information including if you want a dance floor, bar, DJ area, etc which will then be used to determine the marquee size that will be most appropriate.

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?



You do need one.

We advise that you provide a generator in case there’s an issue with power supply.

Do uplighters provide enough light?



Uplighters are perfect for an atmospheric feeling to your event.

But they will not be very bright.

How safe are your wedding marquees?



They are fully fire resistant.

We only use materials that meet British Standard certifications when making them.

Does Strawberry Marquees have insurance cover?



We’re covered for public and product insurance.

During the hire period, coverage for damage to the marquee and equipment as well as theft is the responsibility of the customer.

Could a marquee damage cables or pipes running underneath?



The steel pegs used to secure the marquee in the ground can cause damage to underground drainage cables or pipes.

It’s important to let us know if there are any services underground that we should avoid.

Will your marquees damage our garden?



You do not have to worry about long-term damage.

The grass in the space under the marquee might fade, but this will go back to normal quite quickly.

How much does it cost to hire a wedding marquee?



Each wedding has different considerations. This is also the case marquees.

There are many factors to consider, including size, furniture, lighting, and flooring for each wedding.

We can give you everything you need for your dream wedding.

Contact us today.

Access to the marquee site is restricted, is this a problem?



This is totally fine.

Our marquees are highly portable, and we can access most areas without difficulty.

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?



It depends on your guest list, bar, dance floor, and band.

We would advise you on what to do after inspecting the site.

What surface is suitable for my wedding marquee?



While we can erect our marquees on different surfaces, it will still need to be secured to the ground directly.

During the site visit, we will access the ground and let you know if a particular surface is suitable.

Do I need matting?



The ground might look better with matting, but this is up to you.

We usually recommend matting for weddings for this reason and also because high heels on grass can be uncomfortable and unpleasant.

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

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?



Certainly.

Do you hire linen, cutlery, generators or toilets?

We have generators, as well as luxury toilets, that can be included.

However, we do not have kitchen equipment for hire.

What is included in the initial quote?



The initial quote for a wedding marquee includes the marquee (sized to suit), lighting, internal power distribution (sockets for charging, bar, catering and other features), heating, softly pleated ivory lining, doors, windows and flooring (sized to suit).

You can tell us if there are any other finishes or equipment on your wish list.

When is site meeting necessary?



We must perform a site visit as soon as you get a 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?



They do not need to be lined.

However, we can line them if you want.

What about electricity?



Power can be sourced from a building nearby, as you should not need very much.

A generator may be required as backup.

For further information about our party tents and marquees, don’t hesitate to get in contact.

Can I decorate the Wedding marquee myself?



Of course!

It is our job to make your wedding as memorable as possible.

We will give you advice and assist you whenever you need it.

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



This will vary depending on location.

Let us know your area, and we will provide suggestions for wedding marquee locations.

How many guests can I seat around a table?



You can have between 6 and 12 people to a single table.

However, as the client, you can determine the seating arrangements if you wish.
