Every woman wants her wedding dress to be unique, but few are willing to go as far as a recent bride in Tennessee.
Shona Carter-Brooks of Jackson, Tennessee, didn't bother with an unconventional color or a memorable veil. Instead, she literally incorporated her newborn child into the spectacle that was her wedding gown, dragging her baby girl down the aisle on the train of her dress:

Obviously, Carter-Brooks' decision has already attracted plenty of online criticism, with one of the funniest, and perhaps most sensible, coming from a commenter at ClutchMagOnline: "Lol, if she wanted to include the baby, why not just carry the child and hold her during the ceremony?"
And these criticisms didn't fall on deaf ears. Carter-Brooks has already defended her odd attire on her Facebook page, which read (in part): "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!"
Carter-Brooks, however, didn't quite deny that attaching her newborn to her gown was an odd choice.
