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 marquee types are Modern Wedding Marquees, bespoke wedding marquees, luxury wedding marquees, canopy marquees, frame marquees, entrance marquees, heated marquees, and you can choose from sizes as small as 3.6mx3.6m to 9mx27m.

Can marquees be used all year-round for weddings?



No matter the season, you may be able to use a marquee. However, it is important to put certain factors like weather and site factors into consideration.

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?



Yes.

Cold weather isn’t any bother, and the loved ones you’ve invited can be kept comfortable even in winter.

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?



If the weather is unusually bad, the marquee might be damaged and even wind and rain can make conditions unpleasant with noise and mud.

Because of this, you should make sure to check the weather that’s been forecast before you choose your wedding date.

Are your marquees waterproof?



The marquees are waterproof but if there is heavy rain and poor soil, water might seep in underneath.

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

it can be hard to judge when 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?



This will vary depending on size.

The erection usually ranges between 1-3 days before the event and the marquee is left for an additional day after the event.

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?



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

Do we need a generator?



Yes.

It is recommended you have a generator ready to take over in case there a power cut.

For bright lighting, additional lights will be required.

No.

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



Your guest list, bar, dance floor, and band will affect the space needed.

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

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.

Part of the site visit involves checking the ground to make sure it’s suitable.

Do I need matting?



Matting can improve the look of the setup, but may not be suitable for all events.

Because of this, and because it allows for the use of high heels, we generally recommend matting for weddings.

If you have a dance floor you will need matting, but you can choose whether you want it for your 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.

Additional finishes and equipment are up to you.

When is site meeting necessary?



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

We need to measure the site and check whether it is suitable for a marquee.

Are your marquees lined?



Not always.

You can do the lined marquee if you want.

What about electricity?



Usually, marquees don’t require a lot of electricity; which can be drawn from any nearby building.

A generator might be needed for backup power.

Can I decorate the Wedding marquee myself?



Certainly.

We are there to make sure that your wedding goes just the way you imagined.
