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 all year-round weddings. But it’s still important to consider whether the site and the weather on the day will be suitable.
These preparations can help you see whether you might need to change the site of the marquee if it’s in an area with too much wind.
Is it possible to ensure that marquees are warm enough for winter weddings?
Cold weather isn’t any bother, and the loved ones you’ve invited can be kept comfortable even in winter.
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?
The marquee may not be able to withstand very harsh weather, and windy and rainy conditions can make for an unpleasant outdoor experience.
Make sure you don’t commit to a wedding date before double-checking the weather forecast.
Are your marquees waterproof?
They are, but in extreme rain and bad soil conditions, water is likely to seep under the marquee.
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?
The perfect time for a booking is difficult to determine.
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?
Each size of marquee takes a different time.
The marquee is generally erected on to three days in advance and taking down a day after the event takes place.
How do I know what size of marquee I’ll need for my wedding?
We will need details on your guest list, as well as additions like whether you want a dance floor, bar, or DJ area, before determining the possible size.
How much room does a disco take up?
A good measurement is to allow 5 foot for the width of one side of the dance floor.
Do we need a generator?
We advise that you provide a generator in case there’s an issue with power supply.
Do uplighters provide enough light?
They’re nice to use for lighting effects.
They are unable to provide very bright light, however.
How safe are your wedding marquees?
Our marquees are totally fire resistant.
We only use materials that meet British Standard certifications when making them.
Does Strawberry Marquees have insurance cover?
Strawberry Marquees are 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?
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 will be no damage that remains in the long-term.
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. Marquees can also vary.
There is the size, furniture, lighting, flooring, etc. to consider for each client.
We can give you everything you need for your dream wedding.
Contact us today for an accurate quote.
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?
It depends on your guest list, bar, dance floor, and band.
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.
We will tell you if the site is suitable after we check it as part of the site visit.
Do I need matting?
This will vary depending on the event, but matting generally looks preferable.
We advise matting for weddings, as it can allow high heels to be worn more easily.
Matting is usually needed for a dance floor, but not necessarily for a 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?
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?
Our first quote will cover your marquee, lighting, internal power distribution (sockets for charging, bar catering, and other features), heating, ivory lining, doors, windows and flooring (sized to suit).
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.
We need to measure the site and check whether it is suitable for a marquee.
Are your marquees lined?
No, they don’t need to be.
If you want, however, you may choose to have it lined.
What about electricity?
Usually, marquees don’t require a lot of electricity; which can be drawn from any nearby building.
A generator may be required as backup.
Contact us with any other questions about one of our marquees or party tents.
Can I decorate the Wedding marquee myself?
By all means.
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 depends on where you live.
Let us know your area, and we will provide suggestions for wedding marquee locations.
How many guests can I seat around a table?
6 to 12 is the usual number of guests for a table.
However, as the client, you can determine the seating arrangements if you wish.
