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?



You can use a marquee for a wedding at any time the year. Don’t forget to consider planning aspects like the weather and the site at which the wedding will be held.

If anything about the wedding is unsuited to a marquee, such as exposure to strong winds, you can plan for a change in location.

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



It is certainly possible.

We are more than capable of keeping your guests warm throughout the ceremony in colder months.

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?



In extreme conditions, traditional marquees may not hold up, while on a smaller scale, torrential rain and windy conditions can result in a noisy marquee and muddy grounds in excess rain.

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.

A safe but expensive alternative is to opt for a hard floor with carpet.

How far in advance of the wedding date do I need to hire the marquee?



It is difficult to advise on how early a booking needs to be made.

However, telling us the date you’re planning can help us plan, as we will be able to tell you if the date is available.

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?



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

Do we need a generator?



Definitely.

We recommend that you have a generator on standby in case of 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 100% fire resistant.

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

Any underground services of this nature mean you must inform us so we can avoid them.

Will your marquees damage our garden?



There is no reason to be worried about lasting 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?



There are different aspects of every wedding. The same applies to marquees.

Every client has their own needs regarding things like size, furniture, lighting, and flooring.

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

Get in contact today for a free quote.

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



It’s not a problem.

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

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?



Your guest list, bar, dance floor, and band will affect the space needed.

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

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 always check the ground during the site visit and will inform you as to its suitability.

Do I need matting?



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

For this reason and because it can make it much easier to wear high heels, we generally advise matting for weddings.

Matting is usually needed for a dance floor, but not necessarily 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?



Certainly.

Do you hire linen, cutlery, generators or toilets?

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

Kitchen equipment, however, is unavailable.

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).

You can tell us if there are any other finishes or equipment on your wish list.

When is site meeting necessary?



A site visit is necessary immediately after you receive 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?



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

You might need a backup generator.

Contact us with any other questions about one of our marquees or party tents.

Can I decorate the Wedding marquee myself?



Absolutely.

Your wedding should be designed as you want it to be, and it’s our job to make that happen.

We will give you advice and assist you whenever you need it.

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



This depends on your area

We can give you suggestions for the location of the wedding marquee once you get in contact.

How many guests can I seat around a table?



You can have between 6 and 12 people to a single table.

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