Marry Me Microsoft Pt II

For one week our intrepid groom Michael was isolated in his bachelor bubble, whilst his fiancée Jenny was given a holiday on the Gold Coast. With only Windows 7, Windows Live and Microsoft Office 2010 to enable his research and decisions, Michael tackled the planning with gusto. So how did he go?

Tuesday saw him decide on a venue for 250 people, which he sorted out with a video chat.

Wednesday was time to write the speeches, where Microsoft’s new Skydrive feature allowed him to work on his one document with multiple groomsmen at various locations at the same time.

Come Thursday, and a decision which would strike fear into a lesser man than Michael – choosing Jenny’s dress. To do this, the new functions of Windows Photo Gallery came into play. Mike was able to save all the images from his own bridal fashion show and upload them to his SkyDrive and share his shortlist with friends.

MIchael also ustilised Windows Phone 7, which allowed Jenny to confirm her measurements up on the Gold Coast for the size of the wedding dress.

By the time Friday came around, it was clear Michael and Microsoft together were a great team. Michael used Bing Maps to plan the locations of the bucks and hens parties. And Michael could plan the honeymoon in Hawaii including the activities.
