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 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?



You can use a marquee for a wedding at any time the year. Nevertheless, you should remember things like the weather and the location when making your plans.

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?



You can make sure your marquee is warm enough of.

We can make sure your guests are comfortable in colder weather.

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?



Muddy conditions and rain on top of the marquee can be unpleasant, and severe weather can even cause damage to the marquee.

Checking the weather forecast before your wedding is therefore vital.

Are your marquees waterproof?



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

A possible option is to add a hard floor and a carpet, although this could put you over-budget.

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.

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 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?



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?



Make sure the dance floor has five foot of width on one side.

Do we need a generator?



Absolutely.

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?



They are entirely fire resistant.

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

Does Strawberry Marquees have insurance cover?



Yes, we have public and product insurance.

During the hire period, coverage for damage to the marquee and equipment as well as theft is the responsibility of the customer.

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.

Do inform us of any underground services so we can avoid them.

Will your marquees damage our garden?



There is no fear of permanent damage.

The colour of the grass under the marquee may fade slightly but should revert quickly.

How much does it cost to hire a wedding marquee?



There are many different things to consider with each wedding. The same can be said for marquees.

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

Strawberry Marquees provides everything you need for the perfect wedding ceremony.

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



No.

Our marquees are highly portable, and we can access most areas without difficulty.

However, a site that’s over 25m from the access point or has a tricky access point will incur 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 would advise you on what to do after inspecting the site.

What surface is suitable for my wedding marquee?



It is important that the ground allows us to secure the marquee to it directly but there are many surfaces which will allow this.

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

Do I need matting?



This will vary depending on the event, but matting generally looks preferable.

Matting is recommended for weddings, both for this and because it makes wearing high heels more comfortable.

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

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?



Always.

Do you hire linen, cutlery, generators or toilets?

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

Unfortunately, we do not hire kitchen equipment.

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).

Additional finishes and equipment are up to you.

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?



Not necessarily.

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

What about electricity?



Marquees do not generally need much electricity, and you can get power from the building nearby.

A generator might be needed for backup power.

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

Can I decorate the Wedding marquee myself?



Of course!

It is our job to make your wedding as memorable as possible.

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

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



This is dependent on your exact location.

Contact us with your location and we will give you suggestions on great locations for erecting a wedding marquee.

How many guests can I seat around a table?



6 to 12 is the usual number of guests for a table.

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