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?
There isn’t a reason why marquees cannot be used throughout the year for weddings. But it’s still important to consider whether the site and the weather on the day will be suitable.
By checking these things in advance, you can make sure that you don’t choose a site with very strong winds and you have the option to change locations.
Is it possible to ensure that marquees are warm enough for winter weddings?
It is certainly possible.
We can take steps to make sure your friends and family are nice and cosy throughout the wedding, no matter what the season.
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?
If the weather is unusually bad, the marquee might be damaged and even wind and rain can make conditions unpleasant with noise and mud.
It is therefore important to check the weather forecast before setting a 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.
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 is difficult to advise on how early a booking needs to be made.
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?
This depends on the size of the marquee you wish to use.
The marquee is put up around 1 to 3 days before the event takes place and left for a day after.
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?
You do need one.
It is recommended you have a generator ready to take over in case there a power cut.
Do uplighters provide enough light?
Uplighters are good for creating a simple atmosphere.
They are unsuitable for a brightly lit event.
How safe are your wedding marquees?
They are entirely fire resistant.
The materials they are made from are all created to British Standard specifications.
Does Strawberry Marquees have insurance cover?
Strawberry Marquees are covered for public and product insurance.
The customer is responsible for insurance cover against theft or damage of the marquee and associated equipment during the hire period.
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.
Do inform us of any underground services so we can avoid them.
Will your marquees damage our garden?
There is no reason to be worried about lasting 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?
There are many different things to consider with each wedding. This is also the case marquees.
Aspects such as size, furniture, lighting, and flooring can be different for each person.
Strawberry Marquees can give you everything you have imagined for your wedding.

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.
If there is a site that is over 25m from the nearest access point or is difficult to reach, however, will incur 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?
The marquee must be secured to the ground, although this still allows us to set up on various surfaces.
Part of the site visit involves checking the ground to make sure it’s suitable.
Do I need matting?
This will vary depending on the event, but matting generally looks preferable.
Matting is recommended for weddings, both for this and because it makes wearing high heels more comfortable.
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?
Do you hire linen, cutlery, generators or toilets?
Generators and luxury toilets can be made available as well as the marquees.
Kitchen equipment, however, is unavailable.
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.
Your choice and needs will affect any other finishes or 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?
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 generator might be needed for backup power.
For further information about our party tents and marquees, don’t hesitate to get in contact.
Can I decorate the Wedding marquee myself?
By all means.
Your wedding should be designed as you want it to be, and it’s our job to make that happen.
We will assist and advise you when necessary.
Can you suggest venues where to set up my Wedding Marquee?
This depends on your area
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.
Nevertheless, you have the power to determine the seating arrangements as a client.
