I think it’s safe to say that we all love babies and we all love weddings, and I’ve watched enough “Say Yes To The Dress” to know that we all love wedding dresses, too. So, what could be a better addition to a dress than strapping a baby onto the mother’s train? Clearly nothing. At least, that’s what Shona Carter-Brooks from Jackson, Tenn., decided for her big day last weekend.
Carter-Brooks wanted her one-month-old daughter, Aubrey, to be a special part of her big day, so she decided to literally tie her daughter to the train of her wedding dress as she walked down the aisle. Don’t worry about the baby, though. Carter-Brooks’s Vera Wang dress from David’s Bridal was said to be altered to fit the little nug into it safe and sound–no carpet burn to be found on Aubrey’s cute, little, baby bottom.
Despite criticism from baby lovers everywhere, Carter-Brooks stands by her decision to strap her baby to the train of her dress. Here’s one of her posts from social media:
“People questioning what we do, commenting all negative, and just doing the most. We good though we covered by the Blood which never loose its power. So to the media, radio, news, and whomever else wanting to talk about what WE do here you go: Media Media I see how it works regardless the situation or purpose people gone have something negative to say! The answer is we do what we want when we want long as Jesus on our side everything worked out fine and gone continue to be fine. Our 1 month old was awake and well secured on my train. Most important while yall got ya feelings in us we had our hearts in Christ which covers all!! So keep ya mouths running for it was just that Exclusive and Epic enough we made top blog way from small town Ripley, TN and the social media doing what they do, TALK!!!!”
Well, there you have it. Both David’s Bridal’s alterations department and Jesus made sure the baby was safe for the ride. I’m not sure how you can argue with that.
