Celebrating the Bees and their Buzz on Earth Month

Determined to stand out and stand up for a cause, Beatrice Mulawarman set out to pick a unique name when starting her wedding planning agency.  Bee the Buzz Event is the first and only green wedding planning agency in Minnesota.

Mulawarman’s goal is to help couples start their new life with an awareness of the world they live in.  Bee the Buzz Event aims to create beautiful, sustainable events that positively impact the environment. Like bees, known for the ability to help their “sister” bees find food through social interaction, Bee the Buzz Event strives to help its “sisters” plan the greatest day of their lives with a sustainable twist.

“We would like to make a difference in not only a great celebration of a new beginning but also in the world where the couple will live in,” she says.

Bee the Buzz Event combines rental and re-usable items with the elegance and regality of wedding planning. The company minimizes paper use by utilizing as much technology as possible and donates a portion of its proceeds to plant trees around Minnesota. It also offers a donation program to senior centers or non-profit organizations.

Bee the Buzz Event kicks off every April, which is Earth Month, with a booking incentive for a very lucky few. The month started off as “Global Clean-up Month” in 1968 and became Earth Month officially in 1970, is dedicated to environmental service and awareness. Issues such as the dying honeybee population, pollution and climate change are at the forefront of discussion across the nation.

Bee the Buzz Event seeks to assist in mitigating these problems and to support the preservation of the environment through its one-of-a-kind, sustainable weddings.  Mulawarman and her team will continue to spread the buzz about environment conservation efforts, making a difference one wedding at a time.

“Bees do a little dance at the end (of their search for food) to point out that food is nearby,” Mulawarman says. “We also do a little quiet dance ourselves when seeing our “sister” is having the greatest time of her life.”

The tradition has always been to have something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue. Bee the Buzz Event suggests adding something green to that list too. Be sure to check back on the blog for tips on how to make your big day a sustainable event!

Hello everyone! My name is Aysha and I’m the new resident blogger for Bee the Buzz Event.  I love reading about weddings, talking about weddings and writing about weddings. Some people consider themselves foodies, winos, sports enthusiasts, well I consider myself a wedding aficionado. Weddings are something I am truly passionate about and I’m excited about the opportunity sharing my point of view with all of you.

For my first post I want to share with you my experience with Bee the Buzz Event. Almost three years ago my now-husband proposed and I had the daunting task of planning a wedding 280 miles away from where it was being held. Initially I thought I was going to be able to do it all on my own but quickly determined I was dead wrong. I figured I would do a quick Google search and find a few options to mull over. The next thing I knew I was sucked into a wedding planner black hole if it wasn’t for my darling husband I would probably still be looking at planners to this day! My husband took over and scheduled appointments with three different planners and hoped for the best.  The first two planners reminded me of Franck from the movie Father of the Bride. Although Father of the Bride is my favorite movie and Franck is a hilarious character we did not want a planner to hijack our big day.  We were a bit deflated and truly did not have high hopes going in to our meeting with Bea.  Bea blew our socks off. Right away I could tell she is kind and trustworthy, which were qualities important to us in choosing a planner.  Also, in that first meeting she did something that the other planners did not do, listen.  Bea listened then presented ideas that complimented what we already envisioned. Once we were officially working together, Bea hit the ground running.  We quickly ticked the boxes off of her checklist, but most importantly she helped us not get lost in a sea of possibilities. Bea helped us pinpoint what our vision was and brought it to fruition.

Bea truly exceeded all our expectations. Her expertise and vendor relationships are key to making the wedding planning process fun and as stress free as possible.

Next week…..I will discuss the right way to do NEON.
