A Tennessee woman is under fire for walking down the aisle with something new. That's because it was her newborn baby attached to her wedding dress!
This bride wanted her daughter involved in her wedding, so much so she decided to alter her dress to fit the infant.
Shona Carter-Brooks embedded her 1-month-old daughter in the train of her dress and dragged the child all the way to the altar behind her.
Many people who saw this photo were outraged and felt the bride should be reported to Child Protection Services.
However the woman defended her decision saying the baby was awake, well secured and “covered by Christ."
She wrote on Facebook, "I see how it works. Regardless the situation...people are going to have something negative to say."
It's not clear where Carter-Brooks purchased the dress. The U.K.'s Daily Mail reports that the dress is thought to have been purchased from a chain store, but a saleswoman there told the newspaper she could not comment, and a designer mentioned in the article denies the dress is from its line.
