Not even COVID-19 can stop love! Weddings on the latest InFocus


COVID-19 has slowed down a lot of things over the past year, but not love. Wedding season is here and many couples have had to reimagine their special day – from changing venue due to local restrictions to getting a dress custom made virtually.

Melissa Ridgen and guest host Brittany Hobson talked to brides, dress makers and more to get the scoop on planning the perfect wedding.

We have custom wedding moccasins for the bride and her bridal party, wedding and anniversary bands forged in Six Nations, a bride who worked with a Metis designer in another province, doing fittings online and sending items in the mail to try on!

If you want to add some cultural flair to your wedding day or if Covid has put a wrench in your plans, this episode of InFocus is sure to inspire some new ideas!
