When a bride straps a baby to her wedding gown, people might not see it as an appropriate wedding accessory. Little did a Tennessee bride realize her wedding day would be soon laced with online criticism.
Shona Carter-Brooks is already reliving the biggest day of her life, but sharing it with the rest of the world and being attacked isn't the way she wants to do it. She got married last month to Jonathan Brooks and included their 1-month-old baby, Audrey, by resting her on the wedding dress train as she walked down the aisle. In a Daily Mail report, this has sparked a new kind of controversy.
The image of Shona with her baby behind her on the train is going viral. This woman from Jackson, Tennessee is being widely criticized for "dragging" her infant daughter down the aisle at Elam Baptist Church in Ripley. Some on social media are lashing out that child protective services should get involved. Several call the incident as "classless" and "dangerous."
Not everyone thinks this bride is guilty of any wrongdoing with her baby. A guest at the wedding wrote this message:
"Shona and Jonathan Brooks your wedding was super perfect from the groom and his men and you and your diva's baby you rock the gown and the princess tagging behind you it brought tears to my eyes. Regardless of anybody else dream your's came true. I loved it and thank you for inviting me."
