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 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. However, it is important to put certain factors like weather and site factors into consideration.

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?



Yes.

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

Our heating charges are based on fuel, not on the heating units, and so we always have extra heaters, as well as a backup ready to go.

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.

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.

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?



The perfect time for a booking is difficult to determine.

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.

Usually, the marquee is set up between one and three days before the event it’s needed for and is taken down a day after the event.

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?



A good measurement is to allow 5 foot for the width of one side of the dance floor.

Do we need a generator?



Definitely.

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

Do uplighters provide enough light?



Uplighters are perfect for an atmospheric feeling to your event.

They don’t have enough light for a well-lit party.

How safe are your wedding marquees?



Our marquees are 100% fire resistant.

The materials they are made from are all created to British Standard specifications.

Does Strawberry Marquees have insurance cover?



Our insurance covers 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 used to secure the marquee in the ground can cause damage to underground drainage cables or pipes.

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

Will your marquees damage our garden?



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

The grass in the space under the marquee might fade, but this will go back to normal quite quickly.

How much does it cost to hire a wedding marquee?



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

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

We can meet all your requirements for your ideal wedding ceremony.

Contact us today.

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



Not at all.

We can easily move the marquees into almost any location, as they are designed to be 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?



The size will vary according to your guest list, bar, band, and whether you want a dance floor.

After inspecting the site, we can help you decide.

What surface is suitable for my wedding marquee?



Although marquees can be set up on different surfaces, we do need to secure them to the ground.

We will tell you if the site is suitable after we check it as part of the site visit.

Do I need matting?



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

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 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?



Yes, we do.

Do you hire linen, cutlery, generators or toilets?

We have generators, as well as luxury toilets, that can be included.

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).

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

When is site meeting necessary?



Once you have received the quote, that visit must take place as soon as possible.

We will need to assess the size and environment of the location to make sure the site is suitable for a marquee.

Are your marquees lined?



Not all of them.

If you prefer a lined marquee you can select one.

What about electricity?



You will not need much power for your marquee; it can be supplied by a building close by.

A backup generator might be required.

For further questions about hiring a marquee or party tent please contact us.

Can I decorate the Wedding marquee myself?



By all means.

We are committed to giving you the wedding you want.

Any advice needed can be given.

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



This depends on 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?



Tables seat between 6 and 12 guests.

If you want a different seating plan, you can choose to change it.
