Wedding Marquee Hire FAQ’s
What are your top tips for couples on deciding if a marquee is right for the day?
Before selecting a marquee, make sure to consider different factors, including your location, your budget, your involvement in the planning, whether you want to change anything about the venue, and whether you think your marquee supplier is reliable.
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?
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.
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?
You can make sure your marquee is warm enough of.
Cold weather isn’t any bother, and the loved ones you’ve invited can be kept comfortable even in winter.
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.
Make sure you don’t commit to a wedding date before double-checking the weather forecast.
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?
We cannot tell you how early you should make the booking.
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?
The time will depend on the size of the marquee.
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?
The dance floor should generally have a 5-foot width along one side.
Do we need a generator?
It is recommended you have a generator ready to take over in case there a power cut.
Do uplighters provide enough light?
Uplighters are appropriate if you want a simple atmospheric effect.
For bright lighting, additional lights will be required.
How safe are your wedding marquees?
They are fully fire resistant.
British Standard specifications are used for all the materials used to make them.
Does Strawberry Marquees have insurance cover?
Our insurance covers public and product insurance.
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?
Drainage cables or pipes under the ground could be damaged by the steel pegs used to secure the marquee.
If there any underground services, you should tell us in advance 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.

Each wedding has different considerations. The same can be said for marquees.
Every client has their own needs regarding things like size, furniture, lighting, and flooring.

Access to the marquee site is restricted, is this a problem?
This is totally fine.
We can move the marquees into most sites without any issues.
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 perform site inspections to offer you advice on your marquee choice.
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 always check the ground during the site visit and will inform you as to its suitability.
Do I need matting?
Matting can improve the look of the setup, but may not be suitable for all events.
We usually recommend matting for weddings for this reason and also because high heels on grass can be uncomfortable and unpleasant.
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 have generators, as well as luxury toilets, that can be included.
Kitchen equipment, however, is unavailable.
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).
Your choice and needs will affect any other finishes or equipment.
When is site meeting necessary?
Once you have received the quote, that visit must take place as soon as possible.
We will evaluate the environment to see if it will work for a marquee and check the size.
Are your marquees lined?
You can do the lined marquee if you want.
What about electricity?
You will not need much power for your marquee; it can be supplied by a building close by.
A generator might be needed for backup power.
Contact us with any other questions about one of our marquees or party tents.
Can I decorate the Wedding marquee myself?
Your wedding should be designed as you want it to be, and it’s our job to make that happen.
We will give you advice and assist you whenever you need it.
