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?
No matter the season, you may be able to use a marquee. Nevertheless, you should remember things like the weather and the location when making your plans.
These preparations can help you see whether you might need to change the site of the marquee if it’s in an area with too much wind.
Is it possible to ensure that marquees are warm enough for winter weddings?
Yes, it is.
We can make sure your guests are comfortable in colder weather.
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?
Heavy rain and wind can make an outdoor event unpleasant, noisy, muddy, and harsher weather can even damage the marquee itself.
It is therefore important to check the weather forecast before setting a date.
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 can be hard to judge when a booking needs to be made.
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.
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?
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?
Make sure the dance floor has five foot of width on one side.
Do we need a generator?
You do need one.
It is recommended you have a generator ready to take over in case there a power cut.
Do uplighters provide enough light?
Uplighters are good for creating a simple atmosphere.
They are unable to provide very bright light, however.
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.
While the marquee is under hire, the customer must provide insurance for damage, both for the marquee and equipment, and theft.
Could a marquee damage cables or pipes running underneath?
The steel pegs that we use to secure the marquee could cause damage to drainage cables or pipes that are under the ground nearby.
Make sure to tell us if there are any underground services we should avoid.
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.

Access to the marquee site is restricted, is this a problem?
This is totally fine.
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?
Factors such as your guest list, bar, dance floor, and band will determine the size needed.
We would advise you on what to do after inspecting the site.
What surface is suitable for my wedding marquee?
The marquee must be secured to the ground, although this still allows us to set up on various surfaces.
During the site visit, we will access the ground and let you know if a particular surface is suitable.
Do I need matting?
You will need to decide whether matting suits your event, but it can the better.
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 can, but be sure to cart away the cuttings and if you’re not using matting, avoid cutting it too close to the event as the grass tends to stick to the marquee surface.
Do you decorate the wedding marquees?
Do you hire linen, cutlery, generators or toilets?
We have luxury toilets and generators available as well as our 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.
Additional finishes and equipment are up to you.
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?
No, they don’t need to be.
Lined marquees are available for those who prefer them.
What about electricity?
Any close-by building should be able to provide power, as you will not need much.
A backup generator might be required.

Can I decorate the Wedding marquee myself?
You certainly can.
We want your wedding to be remembered just the way you want.
