Wedding Marquee Hire FAQ’s


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



Before selecting a marquee, make sure to consider different factors, including your location, your budget, your involvement in the planning, whether you want to change anything about the venue, and whether you think your marquee supplier is reliable.

What styles of wedding marquee are available?



Our marquees go from 3.6 m² to 9m x 27m, and they include, Frame Marquees, Canopy Marquees, Heated Marquees, Entrance Marquees, Modern Wedding Marquees, Luxury Wedding Marquees, Bespoke Wedding Marquees, and more.

Can marquees be used all year-round for weddings?



Marquees can be used all year-round weddings. However, you should take note of anything that might be an issue, such as the weather forecast for the day and the suitability of the site.

This way, a venue or site that is particularly exposed to prevailing winds will not be suitable and an alternative location can be considered.

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?



The marquee may not be able to withstand very harsh weather, and windy and rainy conditions can make for an unpleasant outdoor experience.

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.

5 If you have additional funds, you might consider a hard floor and carpet to help.

How far in advance of the wedding date do I need to hire the marquee?



This can vary so it’s hard to say for sure.

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?



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?



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

Do we need a generator?



Yes.

We recommend that you have a generator on standby in case of power failure.

Do uplighters provide enough light?



Uplighters can create a nice effect.

They are unsuitable for a brightly lit event.

How safe are your wedding marquees?



They are fully fire resistant.

We only use materials that meet British Standard certifications when making them.

Does Strawberry Marquees have insurance cover?



We’re covered for public and product insurance.

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?



The steel pegs that we use to secure the marquee could cause damage to drainage cables or pipes that are under the ground nearby.

If there any underground services, you should tell us in advance so we can avoid them.

Will your marquees damage our garden?



There’s no loss and damage.

Although the grass underneath the marquee can fade, it will not take long to get back to the way it was before.

How much does it cost to hire a wedding marquee?



Weddings, in general, have many variables. This is also the case marquees.

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

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?



This is no trouble.

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

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 can offer advice and guidance once we inspect the site.

What surface is suitable for my wedding marquee?



While we can erect our marquees on different surfaces, it will still need to be secured to the ground directly.

We always check the ground during the site visit and will inform you as to its suitability.

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 may but the cuttings must be taken away if you’re not using matting, and make sure to cut it well in advance so the grass doesn’t stick to the marquee.

Do you decorate the wedding marquees?



Yes, we do.

Do you hire linen, cutlery, generators or toilets?

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

However, we do not have kitchen equipment for hire.

What is included in the initial quote?



Our initial quote should include the marquee of the size you choose, lighting, internal power distribution including sockets, bar, catering, etc., heating, lining, doors, windows and the correct size of floor.

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

When is site meeting necessary?



The site visit must take place right after you have received your quote.

The marquee needs a site that is the right size and has the right environment, both of which will be checked at the inspection.

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?



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

You may need to provide a generator for backup.

For further information about our party tents and marquees, don’t hesitate to get in contact.

Can I decorate the Wedding marquee myself?



Certainly.

We want your wedding to be remembered just the way you want.

We will give you advice and assist you whenever you need it.

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



This depends on where you live.

We can offer suggestions on the best site for a wedding marquee after you have provided us with your location.

How many guests can I seat around a table?



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

You are able to choose a different seating arrangement if you prefer.
