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

Can marquees be used all year-round for weddings?



Marquees can be used all year-round 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?



Yes.

Cold weather isn’t any bother, and the loved ones you’ve invited can be kept comfortable even in winter.

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?



Heavy rain and wind can make an outdoor event unpleasant, noisy, muddy, and harsher weather can even damage the marquee itself.

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

Are your marquees waterproof?



They are but the ground itself presents water risk in the event of heavy rain and less than optimal soil conditions.

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?



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?



Each size of marquee takes a different time.

The marquee is put up around 1 to 3 days before the event takes place and left for a day after.

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?



One side of the dance floor should have a width of 5 feet.

Do we need a generator?



You do need one.

We advise that you provide a generator in case there’s an issue with power supply.

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?



They are entirely 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.

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?



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

If there any underground services, you should tell us in advance so we can avoid them.

Will your marquees damage our garden?



There is no fear of permanent damage.

The grass in the space under the marquee might fade, but this will go back to normal quite quickly.

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



This is totally fine.

Our marquees are highly portable, and we can access most areas without difficulty.

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?



The size will vary according to your guest list, bar, band, and whether you want a dance floor.

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.

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

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

Do you decorate the wedding marquees?



We do.

Do you hire linen, cutlery, generators or toilets?

We have luxury toilets and generators available as well as our marquees.

However, we do not have kitchen equipment for hire.

What is included in the initial quote?



The initial quote for a wedding marquee includes the marquee (sized to suit), lighting, internal power distribution (sockets for charging, bar, catering and other features), heating, softly pleated ivory lining, doors, windows and flooring (sized to suit).

You can tell us if there are any other finishes or equipment on your wish list.

When is site meeting necessary?



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

We need to measure the site and check whether it is suitable for a marquee.

Are your marquees lined?



Not always.

You can do the lined marquee if you want.

What about electricity?



Any close-by building should be able to provide power, as you will not need much.

A generator might be needed for backup power.

Please contact us if you have any questions about hiring a marquee or party tent.

Can I decorate the Wedding marquee myself?



Absolutely.

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

Any advice needed can be given.

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



The best venue may be determined by 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?



6 to 12 is the usual number of guests for a table.

Still, you can decide on the seating arrangements you want.
