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. Don’t forget to consider planning aspects like the weather and the site at which the wedding will be held.

By checking these things in advance, you can make sure that you don’t choose a site with very strong winds and you have the option to change locations.

Is it possible to ensure that marquees are warm enough for winter weddings?



Warmth shouldn’t be a problem.

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

We charge based on the amount of fuel use and not the number of heating units – so in the colder weather, we equip the marquee with more heaters and also have a back-up unit always at the ready.

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



Muddy conditions and rain on top of the marquee can be unpleasant, and severe weather can even cause damage to the marquee.

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.

A possible option is to add a hard floor and a carpet, although this could put you over-budget.

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?



Each size of marquee takes a different time.

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 will need details on your guest list, as well as additions like whether you want a dance floor, bar, or DJ area, before determining the possible size.

How much room does a disco take up?



Allow five foot along the width of one side of a dance floor.

Do we need a generator?



Definitely.

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.

But they will not be very bright.

How safe are your wedding marquees?



They are fully fire resistant.

British Standard specifications are used for all the materials used to make them.

Does Strawberry Marquees have insurance cover?



We’re covered for 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?



The steel pegs that we use to secure the marquee could cause damage to drainage cables or pipes that are under the ground nearby.

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

Will your marquees damage our garden?



There will be no damage that remains in the long-term.

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?



Weddings can vary a great deal. This is also the case marquees.

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

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

For a complete and accurate quote, get in contact today.

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



No.

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

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?



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

After inspecting the site, we can help you decide.

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

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.

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 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 have kitchen equipment to hire, however.

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.

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

When is site meeting necessary?



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

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.

If you want, however, you may choose to have it lined.

What about electricity?



Usually, marquees don’t require a lot of electricity; which can be drawn from any nearby building.

A generator may be required as backup.

If you have any of the questions about hiring a marquee or one of our party tents, get in touch.

Can I decorate the Wedding marquee myself?



By all means.

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

We will assist and advise you when necessary.

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



This is dependent on your exact location.

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

How many guests can I seat around a table?



Tables seat between 6 and 12 guests.

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