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?



You can use a marquee for a wedding at any time the year. 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?



Yes, it is.

Cold weather isn’t any bother, and the loved ones you’ve invited can be kept comfortable even in winter.

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?



If the weather is unusually bad, the marquee might be damaged and even wind and rain can make conditions unpleasant with noise and mud.

Checking the weather forecast before your wedding is therefore vital.

Are your marquees waterproof?



They are but the ground itself presents water risk in the event of heavy rain and less than optimal soil conditions.

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?



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?



The size will depend on whether you want a dance floor, DJ area or bar, as well as your guest list.

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?



Yes.

It is recommended you have a generator ready to take over in case there a power cut.

Do uplighters provide enough light?



Uplighters are perfect for an atmospheric feeling to your event.

They are unsuitable for a brightly lit event.

How safe are your wedding marquees?



Our marquees are totally fire resistant.

British Standard specifications are used for all the materials used to make 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?



We use steel pegs to keep the marquee stable and these could damage drainage cables or pipes under the ground.

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

Will your marquees damage our garden?



There is no reason to be worried about lasting damage.

Although the grass underneath the marquee can fade, it will not take long to get back to the way it was before.

How much does it cost to hire a wedding marquee?



Weddings, in general, have many variables. The same can be said for marquees.

Size, furniture, lighting, and flooring can change for every client.

Strawberry Marquees provides everything you need for the perfect wedding ceremony.

For a complete and accurate quote, get in contact today.

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



This is totally fine.

The marquees are easy to transport, and we can move them into almost any site.

However, a site that’s over 25m from the access point or has a tricky access point will incur an additional charge.

How much space will I need to set up my Wedding Marquee?



This will vary depending on your guest list, bar, dance floor, and band.

We can offer advice and guidance once we inspect 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.

Part of the site visit involves checking the ground to make sure it’s suitable.

Do I need matting?



You will need to decide whether matting suits your event, but it can the better.

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?



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?



Yes.

Do you hire linen, cutlery, generators or toilets?

Generators and luxury toilets can be made available as well as the marquees.

However, we do not have kitchen equipment for hire.

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.

Additional finishes and equipment are up to you.

When is site meeting necessary?



A site visit is necessary immediately after you receive a quote.

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.

Lined marquees are available for those who prefer them.

What about electricity?



Marquees do not generally need much electricity, and you can get power from the building nearby.

A backup generator might be required.

Contact us with any other questions about one of our marquees or party tents.

Can I decorate the Wedding marquee myself?



Certainly.

We are there to make sure that your wedding goes just the way you imagined.

You can rely on us for advice and assistance.

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



This will vary depending on location.

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?



Tables seat between 6 and 12 guests.

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