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.
This way, a venue or site that is particularly exposed to prevailing winds will not be suitable and an alternative location can be considered.
Is it possible to ensure that marquees are warm enough for winter weddings?
You can make sure your marquee is warm enough of.
Cold weather isn’t any bother, and the loved ones you’ve invited can be kept comfortable even in winter.
We charge based on the amount of fuel use and not the number of heating units – so in the colder weather, we equip the marquee with more heaters and also have a back-up unit always at the ready.
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 therefore important to check the weather forecast before setting a date.
Are your marquees waterproof?
The marquees are waterproof but if there is heavy rain and poor soil, water might seep in underneath.
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?
it can be hard to judge when a booking needs to be made.
Still, if you tell us the date you are planning for the wedding, we can tell you whether this is available, and you can book it if you want.
How long does it take to erect a wedding marquee?
The time will depend on the size of the marquee.
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?
Allow five foot along the width of one side of a dance floor.
Do we need a generator?
You do need one.
We recommend that you have a generator on standby in case of power failure.
Do uplighters provide enough light?
They’re nice to use for lighting effects.
They don’t have enough light for a well-lit party.
How safe are your wedding marquees?
Our marquees are 100% fire resistant.
The materials they are made from are all created to British Standard specifications.
Does Strawberry Marquees have insurance cover?
Yes, we have 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?
The steel pegs that we use to secure the marquee could cause damage to drainage cables or pipes that are under the ground nearby.
If there any underground services, you should tell us in advance so we can avoid them.
Will your marquees damage our garden?
There’s no loss and damage.
There might be some fading of the grass under the marquee, but they should return to the colour scheme.
How much does it cost to hire a wedding marquee?
Each wedding has different considerations. Marquee should be considered in the same way.
Every client has their own needs regarding things like size, furniture, lighting, and flooring.
Our service can provide all you might want for your wedding.
Contact us today.
Access to the marquee site is restricted, is this a problem?
This is no trouble.
We have no difficulty moving our marquees into most sites, as they are easily portable.
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?
Your guest list, bar, dance floor, and band will affect the space needed.
We will inspect the site and advise you on the best course of action.
What surface is suitable for my wedding marquee?
It is important that the ground allows us to secure the marquee to it directly but there are many surfaces which will allow this.
Part of the site visit involves checking the ground to make sure it’s suitable.
Do I need matting?
Generally, matting looks better, but it depends on your event.
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?
You can, but cutting it too close to the day means the grass can stick to the marquee surface, and any cut grass should be removed unless you’re going to have matting.
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.
However, we do not have kitchen equipment for hire.
What is included in the initial quote?
The cost of the marquee (sized to suit), lighting, internal power distribution (sockets, bar, catering, etc.), heating, lining, doors, windows and flooring (sized to suit), will all be included in the quote.
All other finishes and equipment are subject to choice and necessity.
When is site meeting necessary?
A site visit is necessary immediately after you receive a quote.
The marquee needs a site that is the right size and has the right environment, both of which will be checked at the inspection.
Are your marquees lined?
Lined marquees are available for those who prefer them.
What about electricity?
Power can be sourced from a building nearby, as you should not need very much.
A backup generator might be required.
If you have any of the questions about hiring a marquee or one of our party tents, get in touch.
Can I decorate the Wedding marquee myself?
We are committed to giving you the wedding you want.
We will give you advice and assist you whenever you need it.
Can you suggest venues where to set up my Wedding Marquee?

How many guests can I seat around a table?

You are able to choose a different seating arrangement if you prefer.
