Here's What Happens When Daughters Try On Their Mom's Wedding Gown

As a mom, seeing your daughter wearing your wedding dress can bring on a range of emotions -- tears of joy, nostalgia and quite a few laughs too.

That was certainly the case for the three mothers in a BuzzFeed video posted to YouTube on Friday. One of the dresses was dated ("I just feel like like this looks like the nightgown of a queen in the 1700s" one daughter said), one was ill-fitting ("I could just...bust the whole thing open," another said). But the last one, a strapless ball gown, was the best fit of the bunch.

"It was very emotional for me just to think that she might try on my dress," the teary-eyed mom said. "It was just nerve-racking to think of this step in her life."
