Wedding Marquee Hire FAQ’s


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



In order to know if a marquee is right for your day, you have to consider several factors including: your budget, if you have a special location in mind, if you want to be involved in the entire process, if you want to have the freedom to change the size of your function space, and if you are confident about your choice of marquee supplier.

What styles of wedding marquee are available?



Our smallest marquees are 3.6m², and the largest are 9x27m, with a choice between modern, bespoke, and luxury wedding marquees, and canopy marquees, frame marquees, entrance marquees, and heated marquees.

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.

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?



You can make sure your marquee is warm enough of.

Cold weather isn’t any bother, and the loved ones you’ve invited can be kept comfortable even in winter.

Our heating charges are based on fuel, not on the heating units, and so we always have extra heaters, as well as a backup ready to go.

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



Heavy rain and wind can make an outdoor event unpleasant, noisy, muddy, and harsher weather can even damage the marquee itself.

Checking the weather forecast before your wedding is therefore vital.

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.

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?



it can be hard to judge when a booking needs to be made.

All the same, you should let us know if you have a date you want for the wedding, as we can tell you if the day is open.

How long does it take to erect a wedding marquee?



This will vary depending on size.

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?



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?



Yes.

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

Do uplighters provide enough light?



Uplighters can create a nice effect.

They are unable to provide very bright light, however.

How safe are your wedding marquees?



Our marquees are totally fire resistant.

The materials they are made from are all created to 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?



The steel pegs used to secure the marquee in the ground can cause damage to underground drainage cables or pipes.

It’s important to let us know if there are any services underground that we should avoid.

Will your marquees damage our garden?



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

The colour of the grass under the marquee may fade slightly but should revert quickly.

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.

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 would advise you on what to do after inspecting the site.

What surface is suitable for my wedding marquee?



Although marquees can be set up on different surfaces, we do need to secure them to the ground.

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

Do I need matting?



Generally, matting looks better, but it depends on your event.

Because of this, and because it allows for the use of high heels, we generally recommend matting for weddings.

Matting is usually needed for a dance floor, but not necessarily for a catering tent.

Should I cut the grass?



This is possible but do it in advance to make sure that it doesn’t stick to the marquee surface, and if you’re not using matting, take away the cuttings.

Do you decorate the wedding marquees?



We do.

Do you hire linen, cutlery, generators or toilets?

We have generators, as well as luxury toilets, that can be included.

We do not, however, hire kitchen equipment.

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).

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

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?



No, they don’t need to be.

You can do the lined marquee if you want.

What about electricity?



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

You might need a backup generator.

Please contact us if you have any questions about hiring a marquee or party tent.

Can I decorate the Wedding marquee myself?



By all means.

We want your wedding to be remembered just the way you want.

Tables seat between 6 and 12 guests.

You are able to choose a different seating arrangement if you prefer.
