Wedding Marquee Hire FAQ’s


What are your top tips for couples on deciding if a marquee is right for the day?



When choosing between different marquees, there are some things you should keep in mind, like where you want to have the wedding, how involved you want to be in the wedding plans, if you have a venue that needs alteration, and whether you have faith in the company that’s applying your marquees.

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?



There isn’t a reason why marquees cannot be used throughout the year for weddings. Don’t forget to consider planning aspects like the weather and the site at which the wedding will be held.

This can give you the chance to choose a new location if you were planning to put the marquee in the spot that is exposed to a lot of wind.

Is it possible to ensure that marquees are warm enough for winter weddings?



Yes, it is.

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

There will be a number of heating units, including a backup, to keep you warm, and only charged on a fuel basis and not per unit.

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.

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 safe but expensive alternative is to opt for a hard floor with carpet.

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.

However, if you have a date in mind, you should inform us so that we can let you know if it is available and when a date is selling out so you can secure it if you wish.

How long does it take to erect a wedding marquee?



This will be determined by the marquee size.

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?



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

Do we need a generator?



Certainly.

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

Do uplighters provide enough light?



Uplighters can create a nice effect.

They are unsuitable for a brightly lit event.

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?



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

Any underground services of this nature mean you must inform us so we can avoid them.

Will your marquees damage our garden?



There is no reason to be worried about lasting damage.

The grass might fade beneath the marquee, but this should go back to normal afterward.

How much does it cost to hire a wedding marquee?



There are different aspects of every wedding. Marquees can also vary.

There is the size, furniture, lighting, flooring, etc. to consider for each client.

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?



This is no trouble.

We have no difficulty moving our marquees into most sites, as they are easily portable.

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?



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

We would advise you on what to do after inspecting the site.

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.

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

Do I need matting?



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

We usually recommend matting for weddings for this reason and also because high heels on grass can be uncomfortable and unpleasant.

A typical dance floor requires matting, while catering tents do not unless specifically requested for.

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?



Yes.

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?



The cost of the marquee (sized to suit), lighting, internal power distribution (sockets, bar, catering, etc.), heating, lining, doors, windows and flooring (sized to suit), will all be included in the quote.

Your choice and needs will dictate all other finishes and equipment.

When is site meeting necessary?



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

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?



They do not need to be lined.

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

What about electricity?



Any close-by building should be able to provide power, as you will not need much.

You might need a backup generator.

Please contact us if you have any questions about hiring a marquee or party tent.

Can I decorate the Wedding marquee myself?



Certainly.

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 depends on your area

We can offer suggestions on the best site for a wedding marquee after you have provided us with your location.

How many guests can I seat around a table?



A table can take as many as 12 guests and as few as 6 guests.

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