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?



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?



Marquees can be used all year-round weddings. Nevertheless, you should remember things like the weather and the location when making your plans.

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.

We are more than capable of keeping your guests warm throughout the ceremony in colder months.

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?



The marquee may not be able to withstand very harsh weather, and windy and rainy conditions can make for an unpleasant outdoor experience.

It is advisable to check the weather for any dates you’re considering for your wedding.

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.

You can add hard floor and carpet, but this can be expensive.

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.

However, telling us the date you’re planning can help us plan, as we will be able to tell you if the date is available.

How long does it take to erect a wedding marquee?



This will vary depending on 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 will need details on your guest list, as well as additions like whether you want a dance floor, bar, or DJ area, before determining the possible size.

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?



Absolutely.

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 are unsuitable for a brightly lit event.

How safe are your wedding marquees?



The marquees are completely fire resistant.

They are constructed solely from materials that meet British Standard specifications.

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.

It depends on your guest list, bar, dance floor, and band.

We can offer advice and guidance once we inspect 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 tell you if the site is suitable after we check it as part of the site visit.

Do I need matting?



This will vary depending on the event, but matting generally looks preferable.

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

You will need matting for a dance floor, although you might not need it for a 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.

When is site meeting necessary?



this is done right after you get the quote.

The site must be inspected to measure its size and also determine if it is a good environment for a marquee.

Are your marquees lined?



Not all of them.

However, we can line them if you want.

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.
