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 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?



You can use a marquee for a wedding at any time the year. Nevertheless, you should remember things like the weather and the location when making your plans.

This way, a venue or site that is particularly exposed to prevailing winds will not be suitable and an alternative location can be considered.

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



Yes, it is.

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

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?



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

Because of this, you should make sure to check the weather that’s been forecast before you choose your wedding date.

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?



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?



Each size of marquee takes a different time.

The marquee should be in place between one and three days before the wedding and will be removed the day afterward.

How do I know what size of marquee I’ll need for my wedding?



You will need to provide your full guest list and other information including if you want a dance floor, bar, DJ area, etc which will then be used to determine the marquee size that will be most appropriate.

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?



You do need one.

In case of a power failure, you should always have a generator ready to go.

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 100% fire resistant.

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

Does Strawberry Marquees have insurance cover?



Public and product insurance are both included in Strawberry Marquees’ coverage.

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.

If there any underground services, you should tell us in advance so we can avoid them.

Will your marquees damage our garden?



There is no reason to be worried about lasting damage.

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

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



No.

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

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?



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?



While we can erect our marquees on different surfaces, it will still need to be secured to the ground directly.

We will tell you if the site is suitable after we check it as part of the site visit.

Do I need matting?



This will vary depending on the event, but matting generally looks preferable.

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

A typical dance floor requires matting, while catering tents do not unless specifically requested for.

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?



Yes.

Do you hire linen, cutlery, generators or toilets?

Generators and luxury toilets can be made available as well as the marquees.

We do not have kitchen equipment to hire, however.

The initial quote for a wedding marquee includes the marquee (sized to suit), lighting, internal power distribution (sockets for charging, bar, catering and other features), heating, softly pleated ivory lining, doors, windows and flooring (sized to suit).

Your choice and needs will affect any other finishes or 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 always.

You can do the lined marquee if you want.

What about electricity?



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

You may need to provide a generator for backup.
