Bride straps newborn to gown: Bride defends strapping baby, says Jesus approves

A bride strapped her infant newborn to her wedding gown? “Here comes the bride, all dressed in white. Sweetly, serenely in the soft glowing light.” Not sure what the second stanza to that famous tune is, but we’re quite certain there is no mention of an infant child being strapped up to the back of the bride’s cathedral-style train and dragged along for the ride. Empty cans dragging behind your car? Acceptable. Infant leashed up to your gown and hauled in tow? Nope.

But for one bride, she really, really wanted to get her daughter involved in her wedding, reports KHOU.com out of Houston, and she thought the best way to accomplish that would be to lash her infant, only four weeks old, to her Vera Wang dress and lug her about like a picnic cooler bungee-corded up to the back of a minivan trailer.

Meet Shona Carter-Brooks and her daughter Aubrey. The Tennessee bride’s decision to pull her daughter on the floor, as opposed to simply carrying her, is receiving some instant and well-deserved criticism. Safety is one issue of course, but how about a little dignity and decorum for the occasion? Tying your daughter up and dragging her around lands somewhere between unseemly and degrading.

After the story went viral, Carter-Brooks took to Facebook to post a rather unintelligible rant about her decision:

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 y’all 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!!!!

So if we understand the above, Shona feels that since they were “covered by the blood” of Christ, and since “Jesus was on [their] side,” there could be no possible harm done. Of course, it would seem like virtues such as self-respect took a hefty hit, but other than that, no, no one tripped over your towed toddler.

Online commenters have been quite cruel, as one can imagine, reports People.com. A sampling:

Illiterate, inarticulate, narcissistic, and uneducated – great qualities to pass on to your kid.

I wonder what would have happened if the baby had a diaper blowout on the dress...

Ghetto madness!

YouTube carried a few more photos of our blushing bride and her hubby.
