Wedding Marquee Hire FAQ’s


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



There are a few things to consider when deciding on a marquee such as: your budget, your location, whether you want to change the size of the space later on, how involved you want to be in the planning process, and whether you trust your 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?



You can use a marquee for a wedding at any time the year. 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?



Warmth shouldn’t be a problem.

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

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?



In extreme conditions, traditional marquees may not hold up, while on a smaller scale, torrential rain and windy conditions can result in a noisy marquee and muddy grounds in excess rain.

Checking the weather forecast before your wedding is therefore vital.

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.

You can add hard floor and carpet, but this can be expensive.

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.

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?



This will be determined by the marquee size.

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?



One side of the dance floor should have a width of 5 feet.

Do we need a generator?



You do need one.

We advise that you provide a generator in case there’s an issue with power supply.

Do uplighters provide enough light?



Uplighters are perfect for an atmospheric feeling to your event.

They are unable to provide very bright light, however.

How safe are your wedding marquees?



They are fully fire resistant.

British Standard specifications are used for all the materials used to make them.

Does Strawberry Marquees have insurance cover?



Public and product insurance are both included in Strawberry Marquees’ coverage.

Additional coverage for theft and damage to the marquee or equipment must be provided by the customer for the period of hire.

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.

Any underground services of this nature mean you must inform us so we can avoid them.

Will your marquees damage our garden?



There will be no damage that remains in the long-term.

The grass might fade beneath the marquee, but this should go back to normal afterward.

How much does it cost to hire a wedding marquee?



Weddings can vary a great deal. The same applies to marquees.

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

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

For a complete and accurate quote, get in contact today.

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



No.

We have no difficulty moving our marquees into most sites, as they are easily portable.

However, there is an extra charge added if your site is very difficult to access or is more than 25m from the nearest available access point.

How much space will I need to set up my Wedding Marquee?



Factors such as your guest list, bar, dance floor, and band will determine the size needed.

We can offer advice and guidance once we inspect the site.

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.

A typical dance floor requires matting, while catering tents do not unless specifically requested for.

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?



Yes.

Do you hire linen, cutlery, generators or toilets?

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

We do not, however, 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.

You can tell us if there are any other finishes or equipment on your wish list.

When is site meeting necessary?



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

The site must be inspected to measure its size and also determine if it is a good environment for a marquee.

Are your marquees lined?



Not always.

If you want, however, you may choose to have it lined.

What about electricity?



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

You might need a backup generator.

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.

You can rely on us for advice and assistance.

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



This is dependent on your exact location.

We can give you suggestions for the location of the wedding marquee once you get in contact.

How many guests can I seat around a table?



You can have between 6 and 12 people to a single table.

Nevertheless, you have the power to determine the seating arrangements as a client.
