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 marquees go from 3.6 m² to 9m x 27m, and they include, Frame Marquees, Canopy Marquees, Heated Marquees, Entrance Marquees, Modern Wedding Marquees, Luxury Wedding Marquees, Bespoke Wedding Marquees, and more.

Can marquees be used all year-round for weddings?



Marquees can be used all year-round weddings. Don’t forget to consider planning aspects like the weather and the site at which the wedding will be held.

This can give you the chance to choose a new location if you were planning to put the marquee in the spot that is exposed to a lot of wind.

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



Yes.

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

There will be a number of heating units, including a backup, to keep you warm, and only charged on a fuel basis and 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.

It is therefore important to check the weather forecast before setting a 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?



This can vary so it’s hard to say for sure.

Still, if you tell us the date you are planning for the wedding, we can tell you whether this is available, and you can book it if you want.

How long does it take to erect a wedding marquee?



This will be determined by the marquee size.

Usually, the marquee is set up between one and three days before the event it’s needed for and is taken down a day after the event.

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



There are various factors affecting the size including whether you want a dance floor, bar, DJ area, as well as guest list, which we will need.

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 good for creating a simple atmosphere.

They are unable to provide very bright light, however.

How safe are your wedding marquees?



They are entirely 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.

Make sure to tell us if there are any underground services 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?



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

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

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

Contact us today.

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, we will add a charge for any site that is very difficult to access or is over 25m from the access point.

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?



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 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.

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?



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?



We do.

Do you hire linen, cutlery, generators or toilets?

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

Kitchen equipment, however, is unavailable.

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.

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.

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

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?



Certainly.

We are there to make sure that your wedding goes just the way you imagined.

We will assist and advise you when necessary.

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



This depends on your area

We can offer suggestions on the best site for a wedding marquee after you have provided us with your location.

How many guests can I seat around a table?



The maximum guests for a table is 12 and the minimum is 6.

Still, you can decide on the seating arrangements you want.
