It can be a very emotional scene when a mother sees her daughter all done up on her wedding day. And, to have a daughter wear your dress is another feeling altogether which brings up memories and makes one feel proud. But, what happens when daughters who aren’t getting married try on their mother’s dresses?

For some it’s an equally emotional reaction and just thinking about the big day that might happen in the future is enough to bring tears of joy. For others it’s a flat note, especially if the dress doesn’t fit or isn’t a style the daughter is drawn to. Did you wear your mother’s wedding dress to the alter? Did you ever just try it on to see if it fit?

Have a look below at how mothers and daughters react when the dresses make the leap to the younger generation.
