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?



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?



No matter the season, you may be able to use a marquee. But it’s still important to consider whether the site and the weather on the day will be suitable.

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 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?



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

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.

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?



It is difficult to advise on how early a booking needs to be made.

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 depends on the size of the marquee you wish to use.

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 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?



Definitely.

In case of a power failure, you should always have a generator ready to go.

Do uplighters provide enough light?



They’re nice to use for lighting effects.

They don’t have enough light for a well-lit party.

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?



Drainage cables or pipes under the ground could be damaged by the steel pegs used to secure the marquee.

Do inform us of any underground services so we can avoid them.

Will your marquees damage our garden?



There’s no loss and damage.

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

How much does it cost to hire a wedding marquee?



There are different aspects of every wedding. Marquee should be considered in the same way.

Every client has their own needs regarding things like size, furniture, lighting, and flooring.

Our service can provide all you might want for your wedding.

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



This is no trouble.

We have no difficulty moving our marquees into most sites, as they are easily portable.

Customers should note, however, that very difficult access or a site that is more than 25m from the access point will mean an additional charge.

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 can offer advice and guidance once we inspect the site.

What surface is suitable for my wedding marquee?



While we can erect our marquees on different surfaces, it will still need to be secured to the ground directly.

Part of the site visit involves checking the ground to make sure it’s suitable.

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.

You will need matting for a dance floor, although you might not need it 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 make available generators and luxury toilets along with the marquees.

Unfortunately, we do not hire kitchen equipment.

What is included in the initial quote?



Our initial quote should include the marquee of the size you choose, lighting, internal power distribution including sockets, bar, catering, etc., heating, lining, doors, windows and the correct size of floor.

All other finishes and equipment are subject to choice and necessity.

When is site meeting necessary?



The site visit must take place right after you have received your quote.

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

Are your marquees lined?



They do not need to be lined.

If you want, however, you may choose to have it lined.

What about electricity?



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

A backup generator might be required.

Contact us with any other questions about one of our marquees or party tents.

Can I decorate the Wedding marquee myself?



By all means.

It is our job to make your wedding as memorable as possible.

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.
