Wedding Marquee Hire FAQ’s
What are your top tips for couples on deciding if a marquee is right for the day?
When looking at different marquees, make sure to keep things in mind like your budget, location, the venue, whether you need to make changes to the function space, and whether you are assured that you have the right 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. However, you should take note of anything that might be an issue, such as the weather forecast for the day and the suitability of the site.
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.
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?
Heavy rain and wind can make an outdoor event unpleasant, noisy, muddy, and harsher weather can even damage the marquee itself.
Because of this, you should make sure to check the weather that’s been forecast before you choose your wedding date.
Are your marquees waterproof?
They are, but in extreme rain and bad soil conditions, water is likely to seep under the marquee.
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?
The perfect time for a booking is difficult to determine.
Still, if you tell us the date you are planning for the wedding, we can tell you whether this is available, and you can book it if you want.
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?
You will need to provide your full guest list and other information including if you want a dance floor, bar, DJ area, etc which will then be used to determine the marquee size that will be most appropriate.
How much room does a disco take up?
A good measurement is to allow 5 foot for the width of one side of the dance floor.
Do we need a generator?
In case of a power failure, you should always have a generator ready to go.
Do uplighters provide enough light?
Uplighters are good for creating a simple atmosphere.
They don’t have enough light for a well-lit party.
How safe are your wedding marquees?
Our marquees are totally fire resistant.
They are constructed solely from materials that meet British Standard specifications.
Does Strawberry Marquees have insurance cover?
Public and product insurance are both included in Strawberry Marquees’ coverage.
The customer is responsible for insurance cover against theft or damage of the marquee and associated equipment during the hire period.
Could a marquee damage cables or pipes running underneath?
Damage might be caused to drainage cables or pipes by the steel pegs used to secure the marquee.
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 fear of permanent damage.
The grass in the space under the marquee might fade, but this will go back to normal quite quickly.
How much does it cost to hire a wedding marquee?
There are different aspects of every wedding. Marquee should be considered in the same way.
Aspects such as size, furniture, lighting, and flooring can be different for each person.
Strawberry Marquees provides everything you need for the perfect wedding ceremony.

Access to the marquee site is restricted, is this a problem?
We can move the marquees into most sites without any issues.
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?
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?
Matting can improve the look of the setup, but may not be suitable for all events.
Because of this, and because it allows for the use of high heels, we generally recommend matting for weddings.
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?
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?
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.
Your choice and needs will dictate all other finishes and equipment.
When is site meeting necessary?
A site visit is necessary immediately after you receive a quote.
We will evaluate the environment to see if it will work for a marquee and check the size.
Are your marquees lined?
They do not need to be lined.
If you prefer a lined marquee you can select one.
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.
Contact us with any other questions about one of our marquees or party tents.
Can I decorate the Wedding marquee myself?
We are there to make sure that your wedding goes just the way you imagined.
Any advice needed can be given.
Can you suggest venues where to set up my Wedding Marquee?
This will vary depending on location.
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?
6 to 12 is the usual number of guests for a table.
Nevertheless, you have the power to determine the seating arrangements as a client.
