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?



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, 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 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?



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

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

Are your marquees waterproof?



They are, but in extreme rain and bad soil conditions, water is likely to seep under the marquee.

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 is generally erected on to three days in advance and taking down a day after the event takes place.

How do I know what size of marquee I’ll need for my wedding?



We will need details on your guest list, as well as additions like whether you want a dance floor, bar, or DJ area, before determining the possible size.

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?



Definitely.

It is our recommendation that a generator is made available, in case there is a power failure.

Do uplighters provide enough light?



Uplighters are appropriate if you want a simple atmospheric effect.

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

How safe are your wedding marquees?



Our marquees are 100% 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?



The steel pegs used to secure the marquee in the ground can cause damage to underground drainage cables or pipes.

Make sure to tell us if there are any underground services we should avoid.

Will your marquees damage our garden?



There is no reason to be worried about lasting damage.

There might be some fading of the grass under the marquee, but they should return to the colour scheme.

There are many different things to consider with each wedding. Marquees can also vary.

Aspects such as size, furniture, lighting, and flooring can be different for each person.

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



It’s not a problem.

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?



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?



The marquee must be secured to the ground, although this still allows us to set up on various surfaces.

During the site visit, we will access the ground and let you know if a particular surface is suitable.

Do I need matting?



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

We advise matting for weddings, as it can allow high heels to be worn more easily.

Matting is usually needed for a dance floor, but not necessarily for a catering tent.

Should I cut the grass?



You can, but be sure to cart away the cuttings and if you’re not using matting, avoid cutting it too close to the event as the grass tends to stick to the marquee surface.

Do you decorate the wedding marquees?



Yes, we do.

Do you hire linen, cutlery, generators or toilets?

We make available generators and luxury toilets along with the marquees.

We do not have kitchen equipment to hire, however.

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.

All other finishes and equipment are subject to choice and necessity.

When is site meeting necessary?



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



They do not need to be lined.

If you prefer a lined marquee you can select one.

What about electricity?



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

You might need a backup generator.

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

Can I decorate the Wedding marquee myself?



You certainly can.

We will provide any necessary advice.

However, as the client, you can determine the seating arrangements if you wish.
