Wedding Marquee Hire FAQ’s
What are your top tips for couples on deciding if a marquee is right for the day?
In order to know if a marquee is right for your day, you have to consider several factors including: your budget, if you have a special location in mind, if you want to be involved in the entire process, if you want to have the freedom to change the size of your function space, and if you are confident about your choice of 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?
No matter the season, you may be able to use a marquee. Nevertheless, you should remember things like the weather and the location when making your plans.
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, it is.
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.
Hard floor and carpet might be added to help, but this is an additional expense.
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?
Each size of marquee takes a different time.
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?
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?
Allow five foot along the width of one side of a dance floor.
Do we need a generator?
You do need one.
In case of a power failure, you should always have a generator ready to go.
Do uplighters provide enough light?
They’re nice to use for lighting effects.
But they will not be very bright.
How safe are your wedding marquees?
Our marquees are 100% fire resistant.
They are made from materials that conform to British Standard specifications.
Does Strawberry Marquees have insurance cover?
Strawberry Marquees are covered for public and product insurance.
While the marquee is under hire, the customer must provide insurance for damage, both for the marquee and equipment, and theft.
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?
You do not have to worry about long-term 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?
There are many different things to consider with each wedding. The same applies to marquees.
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?
We have no difficulty moving our marquees into most sites, as they are easily portable.
If there is a site that is over 25m from the nearest access point or is difficult to reach, however, will incur an additional charge.
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 can offer advice and guidance once we inspect the site.
What surface is suitable for my wedding marquee?
There are many suitable surfaces, but we must be able to secure the marquee directly 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.
We advise matting for weddings, as it can allow high heels to be worn more easily.
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.
Do you decorate the wedding marquees?
Do you hire linen, cutlery, generators or toilets?
We make available generators and luxury toilets along with the marquees.
Kitchen equipment, however, is unavailable.
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.
Your choice and needs will dictate all other finishes and equipment.
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.
Lined marquees are available for those who prefer them.
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.
Please contact us if you have any questions about hiring a marquee or party tent.
