Marquee flooring

There are different options for marquee flooring, grass being the cheapest option. Erecting the marquee on grass is not always a viable option in Horsham, and in some cases, the couple are against the grass floor option. Matting is the most popular option because it is versatile, durable and simple. Matting or coconut matting involves using traditional coir flooring mats which are made from the husk of the coconut.

  • Carpet on hard flooring

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?



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?



No matter the season, you may be able to use a marquee. 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?



It is certainly possible.

We can make sure your guests are comfortable in colder weather.

We always make sure there are plenty of heating units including a spare, and will only charge for the fuel, 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.

Make sure you don’t commit to a wedding date before double-checking the weather forecast.

Are your marquees waterproof?



They are, but in extreme rain and bad soil conditions, water is likely to seep under the marquee.

5 If you have additional funds, you might consider a hard floor and carpet to help.

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.

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 erection usually ranges between 1-3 days before the event and the marquee is left for an additional 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?



You do need one.

We advise that you provide a generator in case there’s an issue with power supply.

Do uplighters provide enough light?



Uplighters are appropriate if you want a simple atmospheric effect.

They don’t have enough light for a well-lit party.

How safe are your wedding marquees?



They are fully fire resistant.

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

Does Strawberry Marquees have insurance cover?



Our insurance covers public and product insurance.

The customer is responsible for insurance cover against theft or damage of the marquee and associated equipment during the hire period.

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.

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

Will your marquees damage our garden?



There is no fear of permanent 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?



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

There are many factors to consider, including size, furniture, lighting, and flooring for each wedding.

Our service can provide all you might want for your wedding.

Get in contact today for a free quote.

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



This is totally fine.

We have no difficulty moving our marquees into most sites, as they are easily portable.

However, there is an extra charge added if your site is very difficult to access or is more than 25m from the nearest available access point.

How much space will I need to set up my Wedding Marquee?



It depends on your guest list, bar, dance floor, and band.

We can offer advice and guidance once we inspect the site.

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 will check the ground during our site visit and tell you whether it will work.

Do I need matting?



Matting can improve the look of the setup, but may not be suitable for all events.

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?



Yes.

Do you hire linen, cutlery, generators or toilets?

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

However, we do not have kitchen equipment for hire.

What is included in the initial quote?



The cost of the marquee (sized to suit), lighting, internal power distribution (sockets, bar, catering, etc.), heating, lining, doors, windows and flooring (sized to suit), will all be included in the quote.

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

When is site meeting necessary?



Once you have received the quote, that visit must take place as soon as possible.

We will evaluate the environment to see if it will work for a marquee and check the size.

Are your marquees lined?



Not necessarily.

However, we can line them if you want.

What about electricity?



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

You may need to provide a generator for backup.

For further questions about hiring a marquee or party tent please contact us.

Can I decorate the Wedding marquee myself?



Of course!

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?



This depends on your area

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

How many guests can I seat around a table?



6 to 12 is the usual number of guests for a table.

However, as the client, you can determine the seating arrangements if you wish.
