Wedding Marquee Hire FAQ’s


What are your top tips for couples on deciding if a marquee is right for the day?



In order to know if a marquee is right for your day, you have to consider several factors including: your budget, if you have a special location in mind, if you want to be involved in the entire process, if you want to have the freedom to change the size of your function space, and if you are confident about your choice of 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?



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.

If anything about the wedding is unsuited to a marquee, such as exposure to strong winds, you can plan for a change in location.

Is it possible to ensure that marquees are warm enough for winter weddings?



Yes, it is.

We will have no trouble ensuring your guests are warm throughout the ceremony.

We always make sure there are plenty of heating units including a spare, and will only charge for the fuel, not per unit.

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.

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.

Hard floor and carpet might be added to help, but this is an additional expense.

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.

Nevertheless, it’s important to give us your best estimate for the date, so you can make a booking if we have a date available.

How long does it take to erect a wedding marquee?



Each size of marquee takes a different time.

The marquee should be in place between one and three days before the wedding and will be removed the day afterward.

How do I know what size of marquee I’ll need for my wedding?



There are various factors affecting the size including whether you want a dance floor, bar, DJ area, as well as guest list, which we will need.

How much room does a disco take up?



The dance floor should generally have a 5-foot width along one side.

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 are unsuitable for a brightly lit event.

How safe are your wedding marquees?



Our marquees are 100% 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.

While the marquee is under hire, the customer must provide insurance for damage, both for the marquee and equipment, and theft.

Could a marquee damage cables or pipes running underneath?



Drainage cables or pipes under the ground could be damaged 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.

The colour of the grass under the marquee may fade slightly but should revert quickly.

How much does it cost to hire a wedding marquee?



Weddings can vary a great deal. The same can be said for marquees.

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

We can meet all your requirements for your ideal wedding ceremony.

Get in contact today for a free quote.

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



No.

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

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 will inspect the site and advise you on the best course of action.

What surface is suitable for my wedding marquee?



There are many suitable surfaces, but we must be able to secure the marquee directly to the ground

We will check the ground during our site visit and tell you whether it will work.

Do I need matting?



Generally, matting looks better, but it depends on your event.

Because of this, and because it allows for the use of high heels, we generally recommend matting for weddings.

Matting is usually needed for a dance floor, but not necessarily for a catering tent.

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?



Always.

Do you hire linen, cutlery, generators or toilets?

We have luxury toilets and generators available as well as our 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.

Your choice and needs will dictate all other finishes and equipment.

When is site meeting necessary?



We must perform a site visit as soon as you get a quote.

We need to measure the site and check whether it is suitable for a marquee.

Are your marquees lined?



They do not need to be lined.

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.

You might need a backup generator.

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?



Certainly.

We are committed to giving you the wedding you want.

We will provide any necessary advice.

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



This is dependent on your exact location.

Contact us with your location and we will give you suggestions on great locations for erecting a wedding marquee.

How many guests can I seat around a table?



The maximum guests for a table is 12 and the minimum is 6.

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