Wedding Marquee Hire FAQ’s


What are your top tips for couples on deciding if a marquee is right for the day?



In order to know if a marquee is right for your day, you have to consider several factors including: your budget, if you have a special location in mind, if you want to be involved in the entire process, if you want to have the freedom to change the size of your function space, and if you are confident about your choice of marquee supplier.

Our marquees go from 3.6 m² to 9m x 27m, and they include, Frame Marquees, Canopy Marquees, Heated Marquees, Entrance Marquees, Modern Wedding Marquees, Luxury Wedding Marquees, Bespoke Wedding Marquees, and more.

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, it is important to put certain factors like weather and site factors into consideration.

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?



It is certainly possible.

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

We charge based on the amount of fuel use and not the number of heating units – so in the colder weather, we equip the marquee with more heaters and also have a back-up unit always at the ready.

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.

Because of this, you should make sure to check the weather that’s been forecast before you choose your wedding date.

Are your marquees waterproof?



They are, but in extreme rain and bad soil conditions, water is likely to seep under the marquee.

A safe but expensive alternative is to opt for a hard floor with carpet.

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.

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.

This will be determined by the marquee 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 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?



Make sure the dance floor has five foot of width on one side.

Do we need a generator?



Definitely.

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

Do uplighters provide enough light?



Uplighters are appropriate if you want a simple atmospheric effect.

For bright lighting, additional lights will be required.

How safe are your wedding marquees?



Our marquees are 100% fire resistant.

We only use materials that meet British Standard certifications when making them.

Does Strawberry Marquees have insurance cover?



Strawberry Marquees are covered for public and product insurance.

The steel pegs that we use to secure the marquee could cause damage to drainage cables or pipes that are under the ground nearby.

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.

Access to the marquee site is restricted, is this a problem?



Not at all.

The marquees are easy to transport, and we can move them into almost any site.

However, we will add a charge for any site that is very difficult to access or is over 25m from the access point.

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.

After inspecting the site, we can help you decide.

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.

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.

Because of this, and because it allows for the use of high heels, we generally recommend matting for weddings.

Matting is usually needed for a dance floor, but not necessarily for a catering tent.

Should I cut the grass?



You can, but cutting it too close to the day means the grass can stick to the marquee surface, and any cut grass should be removed unless you’re going to have matting.

Do you decorate the wedding marquees?



We do.

Do you hire linen, cutlery, generators or toilets?

Along with marquees, we have generators and luxury toilets.

Kitchen equipment, however, is unavailable.

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).

Your choice and needs will dictate all other finishes and equipment.

When is site meeting necessary?



Once you have received the quote, that visit must take place as soon as possible.

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 necessarily.

You can do the lined marquee if you want.

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.
