Wedding Marquee Hire FAQ’s


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



Before selecting a marquee, make sure to consider different factors, including your location, your budget, your involvement in the planning, whether you want to change anything about the venue, and whether you think your marquee supplier is reliable.

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. 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.

This can give you the chance to choose a new location if you were planning to put the marquee in the spot that is exposed to a lot of wind.

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?



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 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?



This can vary so it’s hard to say for sure.

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.

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?



The size will depend on whether you want a dance floor, DJ area or bar, as well as your guest list.

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?



Absolutely.

It is our recommendation that a generator is made available, in case there is a power failure.

Do uplighters provide enough light?



Uplighters are good for creating a simple atmosphere.

For bright lighting, additional lights will be required.

How safe are your wedding marquees?



Our marquees are 100% fire resistant.

We only use materials that meet British Standard certifications when making them.

Does Strawberry Marquees have insurance cover?



Yes, we have public and product insurance.

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?



Damage might be caused to drainage cables or pipes by the steel pegs used to secure the marquee.

Make sure to tell us if there are any underground services we should avoid.

Will your marquees damage our garden?



You do not have to worry about long-term damage.

There might be some fading of the grass under the marquee, but they should return to the colour scheme.

How much does it cost to hire a wedding marquee?



Each wedding has different considerations. Marquee should be considered in the same way.

Size, furniture, lighting, and flooring can change for every client.

We can give you everything you need for your dream wedding.

Get in touch for a complete quote.

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



It’s not a problem.

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

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?



Factors such as your guest list, bar, dance floor, and band will determine the size needed.

We can offer advice and guidance once we inspect 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.

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.

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?



Yes, we do.

Do you hire linen, cutlery, generators or toilets?

Along with marquees, we have generators and luxury toilets.

Kitchen equipment, however, is unavailable.

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.

Your choice and needs will dictate all other finishes and equipment.

When is site meeting necessary?



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

The site must be inspected to measure its size and also determine if it is a good environment for a marquee.

Are your marquees lined?



Not always.

If you prefer a lined marquee you can select one.

What about electricity?



You will not need much power for your marquee; it can be supplied by a building close by.

A generator might be needed for backup power.

For further information about our party tents and marquees, don’t hesitate to get in contact.

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.

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



This depends on where you live.

Let us know your area, and we will provide suggestions for wedding marquee locations.

How many guests can I seat around a table?



The maximum guests for a table is 12 and the minimum is 6.

Nevertheless, you have the power to determine the seating arrangements as a client.
