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?



No matter the season, you may be able to use a marquee. But it’s still important to consider whether the site and the weather on the day will be suitable.

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.

We can take steps to make sure your friends and family are nice and cosy throughout the wedding, no matter what the season.

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 advisable to check the weather for any dates you’re considering for your wedding.

Are your marquees waterproof?



Yes, but it is important to note that without good soil conditions, heavy rain could cause ground-level water seepage.

A possible option is to add a hard floor and a carpet, although this could put you over-budget.

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.

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?



The time will depend on the size of the marquee.

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?



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?



Yes.

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.

For bright lighting, additional lights will be required.

How safe are your wedding marquees?



Our marquees are 100% fire resistant.

They are made from materials that conform to British Standard specifications.

Does Strawberry Marquees have insurance cover?



Yes, we have 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?



Drainage cables or pipes under the ground could be damaged by the steel pegs used to secure the marquee.

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

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?



There are many different things to consider with each wedding. Marquee should be considered in the same way.

There are many factors to consider, including size, furniture, lighting, and flooring for each wedding.

We can give you everything you need for your dream wedding.

Contact us today.

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



No.

We can move the marquees into most sites without any issues.

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?



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

We perform site inspections to offer you advice on your marquee choice.

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

Do I need matting?



The ground might look better with matting, but this is up to you.

We usually recommend matting for weddings for this reason and also because high heels on grass can be uncomfortable and unpleasant.

You will need matting for a dance floor, although you might not need it for a catering tent.

Should I cut the grass?



This can be a good idea, but it must be removed if you are not using matting and it might stick to the marquee if you cut it too close to the wedding date.

Do you decorate the wedding marquees?



Always.

Do you hire linen, cutlery, generators or toilets?

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

Unfortunately, we do not hire kitchen equipment.

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 affect any other finishes or equipment.

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?



Not necessarily.

However, we can line them if you want.

What about electricity?



Any close-by building should be able to provide power, as you will not need much.

A generator might be needed for backup power.

Please contact us if you have any questions about hiring a marquee or party tent.

Can I decorate the Wedding marquee myself?



You certainly can.

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?



The best venue may be determined by where you live.

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?



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.
