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 marquee types are Modern Wedding Marquees, bespoke wedding marquees, luxury wedding marquees, canopy marquees, frame marquees, entrance marquees, heated marquees, and you can choose from sizes as small as 3.6mx3.6m to 9mx27m.
Can marquees be used all year-round for weddings?
Marquees can be used at any wedding season. Don’t forget to consider planning aspects like the weather and the site at which the wedding will be held.
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?
We can make sure your guests are comfortable in colder weather.
There will be a number of heating units, including a backup, to keep you warm, and only charged on a fuel basis and not per unit.
How will the wedding marquee cope with at adverse weather conditions?
If the weather is unusually bad, the marquee might be damaged and even wind and rain can make conditions unpleasant with noise and mud.
It is therefore important to check the weather forecast before setting a date.
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?
We cannot tell you how early you should make the booking.
Nevertheless, it’s important to give us your best estimate for the date, so you can make a booking if we have a date available.
How long does it take to erect a wedding marquee?
This will vary depending on size.
The marquee should be in place between one and three days before the wedding and will be removed the day afterward.
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?
Allow five foot along the width of one side of a dance floor.
Do we need a generator?
We advise that you provide a generator in case there’s an issue with power supply.
Do uplighters provide enough light?
Uplighters can create a nice effect.
They don’t have enough light for a well-lit party.
How safe are your wedding marquees?
They are entirely fire resistant.
The materials they are made from are all created to British Standard specifications.
Does Strawberry Marquees have insurance cover?
Public and product insurance are both included in Strawberry Marquees’ coverage.
During the hire period, coverage for damage to the marquee and equipment as well as theft is the responsibility of the customer.
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.
There might be some fading of the grass under the marquee, but they should return to the colour scheme.
How much does it cost to hire a wedding marquee?

How much space will I need to set up my Wedding Marquee?
This will vary depending 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?
You will need to decide whether matting suits your event, but it can the better.
For this reason and because it can make it much easier to wear high heels, we generally advise 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 is possible but do it in advance to make sure that it doesn’t stick to the marquee surface, and if you’re not using matting, take away the cuttings.

We have generators, as well as luxury toilets, that can be included.

When is site meeting necessary?

We will need to assess the size and environment of the location to make sure the site is suitable for a marquee.
Are your marquees lined?
