Karelle Edwards had been prepping for the 2020 Olympics and was set to represent Canada but her plans were washed away when coronavirus turned that opportunity upside down. Despite this, Karelle thought choosing her wedding dress could be that one thing that could divert her attention as she had dreamed about being a Kleinfeld bride ever since she started watching the show with her father. 

Unfortunately, she had to hear the bad news that Kleinfeld had closed for the time being due to Covid-19. To make sure Karelle's dreams were not broken, Lisa decided to make her day special by having a virtual consultation session. Lisa admitted that this was the first virtual session she had ever held and as much as she was excited, she was fearful of how things would turn out.

Speaking to Karelle, she asked her about the type of dress she had been looking forward to and what was her imagination of a perfect wedding dress. Karelle was quick to inform her that she was looking forward to having a dress that had a "mermaid look, deep V cut, an open back, and was sheer with maybe lace." Lisa got a feel of the kind of wedding dress Karelle had been looking for and decided to select three dresses to send it to her. Lisa admitted it had been stressful for her as she had to make sure the three dresses she sent were the perfect fit as she did not have a chance to go and take something from the rack if Karelle did not like it.

With her fingers crossed, Lisa sent three dresses that fit the description of what Karelle had in mind. Karelle also felt overwhelmed as she had to pick her dress while talking to her parents online. She was looking forward to having her family by her side but seeing how things were different, she felt a range of emotions running through her. Despite this, she was open to trying on the dresses. Karelle had her mother, father, sister, and friend on the call along with Lisa to pick the wedding dress. She tried on the first dress that she had, expecting it to be the one but it proved to be a disappointment. Karelle tried on the second dress that brought a smile on her face but she knew it was not the one.
