Marquee flooring

Wedding Marquee Hire FAQ’s


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



In order to know if a marquee is right for your day, you have to consider several factors including: your budget, if you have a special location in mind, if you want to be involved in the entire process, if you want to have the freedom to change the size of your function space, and if you are confident about your choice of marquee supplier.

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?



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.

These preparations can help you see whether you might need to change the site of the marquee if it’s in an area with too much wind.

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



You can make sure your marquee is warm enough of.

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

Because we only charge for the amount fuel used and not for the number of units, we always provide as many units as you need for heating and we also have a backup available.

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.

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?



We cannot tell you how early you should make the booking.

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?



One side of the dance floor should have a width of 5 feet.

Do we need a generator?



Yes.

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

Do uplighters provide enough light?



Uplighters are appropriate if you want a simple atmospheric effect.

They don’t have enough light for a well-lit party.

How safe are your wedding marquees?



They are entirely fire resistant.

The materials they are made from are all created to British Standard specifications.

Does Strawberry Marquees have insurance cover?



Our insurance covers public and product insurance.

The customer is required to provide coverage for any damage to the marquee and equipment, and coverage theft, while responsible for the marquee.

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.

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

Will your marquees damage our garden?



You do not have to worry about long-term damage.

The grass in the space under the marquee might fade, but this will go back to normal quite quickly.

How much does it cost to hire a wedding marquee?



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

There is the size, furniture, lighting, flooring, etc. to consider for each client.

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

Contact us today for an accurate quote.

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



It’s not a problem.

The marquees are easy to transport, and we can move them into almost any site.

Customers should note, however, that very difficult access or a site that is more than 25m from the access point will mean an additional charge.

How much space will I need to set up my Wedding Marquee?



The size will vary according to your guest list, bar, band, and whether you want a dance floor.

We perform site inspections to offer you advice on your marquee choice.

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.

Part of the site visit involves checking the ground to make sure it’s suitable.

Do I need matting?



You will need to decide whether matting suits your event, but it can the better.

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 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?



Yes, we do.

Do you hire linen, cutlery, generators or toilets?

We have luxury toilets and generators available as well as our marquees.

Unfortunately, we do not hire kitchen equipment.

What is included in the initial quote?



The cost of the marquee (sized to suit), lighting, internal power distribution (sockets, bar, catering, etc.), heating, lining, doors, windows and flooring (sized to suit), will all be included in the quote.

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

When is site meeting necessary?



this is done right after you get the quote.

We will evaluate the environment to see if it will work for a marquee and check the size.

Are your marquees lined?



Not all of them.

However, we can line them 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.

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

Can I decorate the Wedding marquee myself?



Certainly.

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

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

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



This will vary depending on location.

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

How many guests can I seat around a table?



6 to 12 is the usual number of guests for a table.

If you want a different seating plan, you can choose to change it.
