Wedding Marquee Hire FAQ’s


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



When looking at different marquees, make sure to keep things in mind like your budget, location, the venue, whether you need to make changes to the function space, and whether you are assured that you have the right 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?



No matter the season, you may be able to use a marquee. Nevertheless, you should remember things like the weather and the location when making your plans.

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?



Yes, it is.

We will have no trouble ensuring your guests are warm throughout the ceremony.

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?



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

It is advisable to check the weather for any dates you’re considering for your wedding.

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.

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.

However, if you have a date in mind, you should inform us so that we can let you know if it is available and when a date is selling out so you can secure it if you wish.

How long does it take to erect a wedding marquee?



This depends on the size of the marquee you wish to use.

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 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?



Make sure the dance floor has five foot of width on one side.

Do we need a generator?



Absolutely.

We recommend that you have a generator on standby in case of power failure.

Do uplighters provide enough light?



Uplighters are appropriate if you want a simple atmospheric effect.

But they will not be very bright.

How safe are your wedding marquees?



They are entirely fire resistant.

Does Strawberry Marquees have insurance cover?



Our insurance covers public and product insurance.

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

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

Do I need matting?



The ground might look better with matting, but this is up to you.

We usually recommend matting for weddings for this reason and also because high heels on grass can be uncomfortable and unpleasant.

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?



Certainly.

Do you hire linen, cutlery, generators or toilets?

We make available generators and luxury toilets along with the marquees.

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

When is site meeting necessary?



The site visit must take place right after you have received your quote.

We need to measure the site and check whether it is suitable for a marquee.

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.

A generator may be required as backup.

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

Can I decorate the Wedding marquee myself?



By all means.

It is our job to make your wedding as memorable as possible.

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

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