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 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?



There isn’t a reason why marquees cannot be used throughout the year for weddings. But it’s still important to consider whether the site and the weather on the day will be suitable.

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?



You can make sure your marquee is warm enough of.

We will have no trouble ensuring your guests are warm throughout the ceremony.

Because we only charge for the amount fuel used and not for the number of units, we always provide as many units as you need for heating and we also have a backup available.

How will the wedding marquee cope with at adverse weather conditions?



If the weather is unusually bad, the marquee might be damaged and even wind and rain can make conditions unpleasant with noise and mud.

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

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.

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?



The perfect time for a booking is difficult to determine.

However, if you have a date in mind, you should inform us so that we can let you know if it is available and when a date is selling out so you can secure it if you wish.

How long does it take to erect a wedding marquee?



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

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?

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.

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

What surface is suitable for my wedding marquee?



It is important that the ground allows us to secure the marquee to it directly but there are many surfaces which will allow this.

We always check the ground during the site visit and will inform you as to its suitability.

Do I need matting?



The ground might look better with matting, but this is up to you.

We advise matting for weddings, as it can allow high heels to be worn more easily.

Dance floors should be supported by matting, but a catering tent might be able to go without.

Should I cut the grass?



You may but the cuttings must be taken away if you’re not using matting, and make sure to cut it well in advance so the grass doesn’t stick to the marquee.

Do you decorate the wedding marquees?



Certainly.

Do you hire linen, cutlery, generators or toilets?

Generators and luxury toilets can be made available as well as the marquees.

However, we do not have kitchen equipment for hire.

What is included in the initial quote?



We can include the cost of the marquee (sized to suit), lighting, internal power distribution (sockets for charging, bar catering, and other
features), heating, ivory lining, doors, windows and flooring (sized to suit) in the initial quote.

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

When is site meeting necessary?



We must perform a site visit as soon as you get a quote.

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 always.

If you prefer a lined marquee you can select one.

What about electricity?



Power can be sourced from a building nearby, as you should not need very much.

A backup generator might be required.
