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?
You can choose between marquee styles such as modern, bespoke, and luxury wedding marquees, as well as canopy, frame, entrance, and heated marquees, and sizes between 3.6m² and 9x27m.
Can marquees be used all year-round for weddings?
There isn’t a reason why marquees cannot be used throughout the year for weddings. 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.
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?
Warmth shouldn’t be a problem.
We will have no trouble ensuring your guests are warm throughout the ceremony.
Because we only charge for the amount fuel used and not for the number of units, we always provide as many units as you need for heating and we also have a backup available.
How will the wedding marquee cope with at adverse weather conditions?
In extreme conditions, traditional marquees may not hold up, while on a smaller scale, torrential rain and windy conditions can result in a noisy marquee and muddy grounds in excess rain.
Make sure you don’t commit to a wedding date before double-checking the weather forecast.
Are your marquees waterproof?
Yes, but it is important to note that without good soil conditions, heavy rain could cause ground-level water seepage.
5 If you have additional funds, you might consider a hard floor and carpet to help.
How far in advance of the wedding date do I need to hire the marquee?
It is difficult to advise on how early a booking needs to be made.
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?
Each size of marquee takes a different time.
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?
One side of the dance floor should have a width of 5 feet.
Do we need a generator?
We recommend that you have a generator on standby in case of power failure.

They don’t have enough light for a well-lit party.

The marquees are completely fire resistant.
British Standard specifications are used for all the materials used to make them.
Does Strawberry Marquees have insurance cover?
Public and product insurance are both included in Strawberry Marquees’ coverage.

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.
It’s important to let us know if there are any services underground that we should avoid.
Will your marquees damage our garden?
There is no fear of permanent damage.
There might be some fading of the grass under the marquee, but they should return to the colour scheme.

Access to the marquee site is restricted, is this a problem?
This is totally fine.
The marquees are easy to transport, and we can move them into almost any site.

How much space will I need to set up my Wedding Marquee?
The size will vary according to your guest list, bar, band, and whether you want a dance floor.
We would advise you on what to do after inspecting the site.
What surface is suitable for my wedding marquee?
Although marquees can be set up on different surfaces, we do need to secure them to the ground.
We will check the ground during our site visit and tell you whether it will work.
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.
You will need matting for a dance floor, although you might not need it for a 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?
Along with marquees, we have generators and luxury toilets.
Kitchen equipment, however, is unavailable.
What is included in the initial quote?
The initial quote for a wedding marquee includes the marquee (sized to suit), lighting, internal power distribution (sockets for charging, bar, catering and other features), heating, softly pleated ivory lining, doors, windows and flooring (sized to suit).
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.
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?
Not all of them.
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.
You might need a backup generator.
If you have any of the questions about hiring a marquee or one of our party tents, get in touch.
