Bride Fastens Newborn Baby To Wedding Dress Train

The politics of fashion

A Tennessee bride wanted her newborn baby to play a special part in the ceremony. So she tied her to the wedding dress. 

According to an article in Buzzfeed, Shona Carter-Brooks had her Vera Wang dress specially altered to carry her one-month-old daughter, Aubrey, on the train.

To some, the idea came off as original and incredibly touching. To others, nothing short of scandalous. 

But the bride told naysayers—some of whom thought the new bride should be reported to child services—to rest assured, her newborn was “awake and well-secured,” and Christ had her back: 

"... we do what we want when we want [sic] long as Jesus on our side everything worked out fine.”

As for Carter-Brooks, she seems satisfied that her dress got the whole of social media talking. From that point of view, it's a clear win.

What do you think of the design—irresponsible or ingenious?

This teen designed a wedding dress like none you've ever seen.
