Tennessee bride Shona Carter-Brooks put the finishing touches on her wedding dress by altering the train—to fit her infant daughter.


According to Jezebel, Carter-Brooks had the dress altered so she could attach her 1-month-old daughter, Aubrey, to the train as she walked down the aisle last month. According to Buzzfeed, Carter-Brooks says she wore a pricey Vera Wang gown but the company says it isn't from any Wang collection.

Carter-Brooks declined to comment to Buzzfeed about the uproar over her decision to make her daughter part of the train but did say in an email, "Understood everyone entitled to their own opinion so all I have to say is God bless you!" She also posted this statement on her Facebook page:

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!
