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?
We have Modern Wedding Marquees, Bespoke Wedding Marquees, Luxury Wedding Marquees, Canopy Marquees, Frame Marquees, Entrance Marquees, and Heated Marquees, etc, ranging from 3.6mx3.6m to 9mx27m.
Can marquees be used all year-round for weddings?
Marquees can be used at any wedding season. However, you should take note of anything that might be an issue, such as the weather forecast for the day and the suitability of the site.
By checking these things in advance, you can make sure that you don’t choose a site with very strong winds and you have the option to change locations.
Is it possible to ensure that marquees are warm enough for winter weddings?
It is certainly possible.
We can take steps to make sure your friends and family are nice and cosy throughout the wedding, no matter what the season.
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.
It is therefore important to check the weather forecast before setting a date.
Are your marquees waterproof?
They are, but in extreme rain and bad soil conditions, water is likely to seep under the marquee.
Hard floor and carpet might be added to help, but this is an additional expense.
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.
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.
How long does it take to erect a wedding marquee?
Each size of marquee takes a different time.
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?
One side of the dance floor should have a width of 5 feet.
Do we need a generator?
In case of a power failure, you should always have a generator ready to go.
Do uplighters provide enough light?
Uplighters are perfect for an atmospheric feeling to your event.
For bright lighting, additional lights will be required.
How safe are your wedding marquees?
The marquees are completely fire resistant.
British Standard specifications are used for all the materials used to make them.
Does Strawberry Marquees have insurance cover?
Our insurance covers 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?
The steel pegs that we use to secure the marquee could cause damage to drainage cables or pipes that are under the ground nearby.
Make sure to tell us if there are any underground services we should avoid.
Will your marquees damage our garden?
There’s no loss and damage.
The grass might fade beneath the marquee, but this should go back to normal afterward.
How much does it cost to hire a wedding marquee?
Weddings, in general, have many variables. The same applies to marquees.
Every client has their own needs regarding things like size, furniture, lighting, and flooring.
Strawberry Marquees can give you everything you have imagined for your wedding.

Access to the marquee site is restricted, is this a problem?
We can move the marquees into most sites without any issues.
If there is a site that is over 25m from the nearest access point or is difficult to reach, however, will incur 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.
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.
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?
You can, but be sure to cart away the cuttings and if you’re not using matting, avoid cutting it too close to the event as the grass tends to stick to the marquee surface.
Do you decorate the wedding marquees?
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).
You can tell us if there are any other finishes or equipment on your wish list.
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?
If you want, however, you may choose to have it lined.
What about electricity?
Power can be sourced from a building nearby, as you should not need very much.
A backup generator might be required.

Can I decorate the Wedding marquee myself?
You certainly can.
It is our job to make your wedding as memorable as possible.
We will provide any necessary advice.
