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 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?



You can make sure your marquee is warm enough of.

We can take steps to make sure your friends and family are nice and cosy throughout the wedding, no matter what the season.

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?



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

Checking the weather forecast before your wedding is therefore vital.

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.

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?



This can vary so it’s hard to say for sure.

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?



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?



We can help you choose the size once you tell us how many guests you’ll have, and whether you want a dance floor, DJ area or bar as well.

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?



Absolutely.

It is our recommendation that a generator is made available, in case there is a power failure.

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?



They are fully fire resistant.

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

Does Strawberry Marquees have insurance cover?



Strawberry Marquees are covered for public and product insurance.

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?



We use steel pegs to keep the marquee stable and these could damage drainage cables or pipes under the ground.

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.

Although the grass underneath the marquee can fade, it will not take long to get back to the way it was before.

How much does it cost to hire a wedding marquee?



Weddings can vary a great deal. Marquees can also vary.

Aspects such as size, furniture, lighting, and flooring can be different for each person.

We can meet all your requirements for your ideal wedding ceremony.

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.

However, there is an extra charge added if your site is very difficult to access or is more than 25m from the nearest available access point.

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 will inspect the site and advise you on the best course of action.

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?



Generally, matting looks better, but it depends on your event.

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

A typical dance floor requires matting, while catering tents do not unless specifically requested for.

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.

Do you decorate the wedding marquees?



Yes.

Do you hire linen, cutlery, generators or toilets?

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

We do not have kitchen equipment to hire, however.

What is included in the initial quote?



Our first quote will cover your marquee, lighting, internal power distribution (sockets for charging, bar catering, and other features), heating, ivory lining, doors, windows and flooring (sized to suit).

Additional finishes and equipment are up to you.

When is site meeting necessary?



A site visit is necessary immediately after you receive a 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 necessarily.

Lined marquees are available for those who prefer them.

What about electricity?



Marquees do not generally need much electricity, and you can get power from the building nearby.

A generator may be required as backup.

For further questions about hiring a marquee or party tent please contact us.

Can I decorate the Wedding marquee myself?



Absolutely.

We want your wedding to be remembered just the way you want.

We will provide any necessary advice.

Can you suggest venues where to set up my Wedding Marquee?



This depends on where you live.

We can give you suggestions for the location of the wedding marquee once you get in contact.

How many guests can I seat around a table?



A table can take as many as 12 guests and as few as 6 guests.

Nevertheless, you have the power to determine the seating arrangements as a client.
