Marry Me Microsoft Day 1 – Mike hits the ground running
Mike, our groom, is trying to pull off one of the most frightening challenges known to the male species – organise his entire wedding in just one week while locked away in a Bachelor Bubble. Follow the action on Facebook or visit the Bachelor Bubble outside Customs House in Sydney.
Today we saw Mike select his bridal party, allocate the budget and choose the theme for his and Jenny’s wedding. Australia had a lot to say about his choices – so let’s hope Jenny is happy with the end result!
Mikes tasks on Tuesday include organising a wedding venue – including food - and flowers. If you’ve got a venue or you’re a florist check out the instructions on Facebook to learn how you can help Mike out and submit a proposal.
The “Marry Me Microsoft” challenge kicked off on Monday and Channel Nine’s TODAY Show paid Mike a visit to capture his first moments in the Bachelor Bubble.
Mike will have just five days (6th -10th December) and $25,000 from Microsoft to put towards organising the entire wedding and honeymoon using only an internet-connected PC loaded with Windows 7, Office 2010 and Windows Live while living in a ‘bachelor bubble’ at Circular Quay. This is really going to test Mike but we reckon anything is possible when you have technology tools that let you create, connect and share with virtually anyone from virtually anywhere – including the Bachelor Bubble.
Each day, Mike’s given a set of tasks to complete and he’ll only have that day to complete them (this is starting to sound tough!) Wedding suppliers will be able to help him out by submitting proposals and advice through Mike’s online Windows Live SkyDrive.
Follow the action on Facebook where you can get involved in the conversation, check out the ‘Marry Me’ tab for daily videos and updates and influence Mike’s decisions through the daily poll. You can also visit the Bachelor Bubble outside Customs House at Circular Quay in Sydney.
Tune into Nova next week to hear interviews with the groom and live crosses from the Bachelor Bubble. On Friday Nova will also be broadcasting LIVE from Circular Quay to celebrate Mike’s release from the Bachelor Bubble. Let’s just hope he still has a bride!
Information for wedding suppliers Let’s face it, to succeed Mike’s going to need a lot of help from wedding suppliers. Each weekday, Mike will be given a set of unique tasks that he must complete that day. On Tuesday he’ll be looking for help from venues and florists. You can find out how to submit a proposal by visiting the Facebook.
