Marie-Therese and her mom, Theresa, experienced one of the most tear-jerking moments on Say Yes to the Dress. Although Marie was single, her mom's Stage 4 neuroendocrine cancer diagnosis prompted her to go to Kleinfeld Bridal as soon as possible.

Theresa's time was unknown, so she opted joined Marie to look for a wedding dress — an experience they always wanted to share together. There were several gorgeous dresses in the running, but Theresa brought along a surprise: her wedding dress, which she bought from Kleinfeld Bridal for her own wedding day!

Marie had no idea her mom's dress would be an option, but when she tried it on, everything changed — and soon, the moment become about more than just dress shopping.

The gown slipped right on and fit Marie perfectly! It was definitely meant to be and when she saw herself wearing her mother's dress for the first time, she knew she wanted to wear it on her own wedding day. The big reveal was full of tears, but Marie was so grateful that her mom had the chance to see it and be part of this unforgettable moment.
