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?
Marquees can be used at any wedding season. 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?
Yes, it is.
We are more than capable of keeping your guests warm throughout the ceremony in colder months.
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?
In extreme conditions, traditional marquees may not hold up, while on a smaller scale, torrential rain and windy conditions can result in a noisy marquee and muddy grounds in excess rain.
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?
The perfect time for a booking is difficult to determine.
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?
The time will depend on the size of the marquee.
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?
There are various factors affecting the size including whether you want a dance floor, bar, DJ area, as well as guest list, which we will need.
How much room does a disco take up?
A good measurement is to allow 5 foot for the width of one side of the dance floor.
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?
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?
The marquees are completely fire resistant.
The materials they are made from are all created to British Standard specifications.
Does Strawberry Marquees have insurance cover?
Public and product insurance are both included in Strawberry Marquees’ coverage.
Additional coverage for theft and damage to the marquee or equipment must be provided by the customer for the period of hire.
Could a marquee damage cables or pipes running underneath?
We use steel pegs to keep the marquee stable and these could damage drainage cables or pipes under the ground.
Any underground services of this nature mean you must inform us so we can avoid them.
Will your marquees damage our garden?
You do not have to worry about long-term damage.
Although the grass underneath the marquee can fade, it will not take long to get back to the way it was before.
How much does it cost to hire a wedding marquee?
Weddings can vary a great deal. The same applies to marquees.

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, a site that’s over 25m from the access point or has a tricky access point 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 perform site inspections to offer you advice on your marquee choice.
What surface is suitable for my wedding marquee?
There are many suitable surfaces, but we must be able to secure the marquee directly to the ground
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.
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?
Do you hire linen, cutlery, generators or toilets?
We have luxury toilets and generators available as well as our marquees.
Kitchen equipment, however, is unavailable.
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.
Your choice and needs will affect any other finishes or equipment.
When is site meeting necessary?
We must perform a site visit as soon as you get a quote.
We need to measure the site and check whether it is suitable for a marquee.
Are your marquees lined?
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 generator may be required as backup.
Contact us with any other questions about one of our marquees or party tents.
Can I decorate the Wedding marquee myself?
We are committed to giving you the wedding you want.
You can rely on us for advice and assistance.
Can you suggest venues where to set up my Wedding Marquee?
