Do you see a problem with this set up?

No, not at all, the baby's basically on a blanket

Yes, it's terrible, the wee girl's being dragged along a hard floor!

It looks safe enough, but it's still weird

A Tennessee bride has come under fire for strapping her newborn baby to the train of her wedding dress and dragging it down the aisle.

Shona Carter-Brooks has brushed off the criticism, saying her one-month-old daughter Aubrey was awake and well-secured and "covered by Christ".

Carter-Brooks somehow managed to attach the baby to the train of her gown when she married Johnathan Brooks at the Elam Baptist Church in Ripley last month, the Daily Mail reported

When she uploaded her wedding pics on social media, her unusual choice of accessory quickly went viral. 
Some commentators said she should be reported to child protection services.

Carter-Brooks lashed out at her critics on her Facebook.

"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, as long as Jesus on our side everything worked out fine and gona continue to be fine. (sic)"

In a separate post, she maintained her daughter was in no danger.

"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!! (sic)"

One guest at the wedding was complimentary of the dress, and posted in a comment "you rock the gown and the princess tagging behind you it brought tears to my eyes."

Carter-Brooks said on Facebook the dress was from a Vera Wang collection - but Vera Wang has denied this.
