A Tennessee woman has fired back at critics for the unusual way she included her baby daughter in her recent wedding.

Shona Carter-Brooks, of Jackson, Tenn., secured her 1-month-old daughter on the train of her wedding dress as she walked down the aisle. Carter Brooks, who married Johnathan Brooks at the Elam Baptist Church in Ripley, Tenn., last weekend, walked down the aisle with her daughter dragging behind wrapped in the enormous amount of material on her David's Bridal dress by Vera Wang.

The negative Internet comments — presumably by people not in attendance at the ceremony — began pouring out, including from website Clutchmagonline.com, which labeled the incident "Another Wedding WTF."

"She dumb as hell! Her and her husband," wrote one commenter. "That poor child born to 2 supreme idiots."

SHONA CARTER-BROOKS/VIA FACEBOOK

No injuries were reported for the baby, who was reportedly secured in the train of Shona Carter-Brooks’ dress.

"Lol, if she wanted to include the baby, why not just carry the child and hold her during the ceremony?" wrote another. "They're doing too much."

No video from the wedding has been released, so it's not clear how quickly the baby was brought down the aisle or if she was jostled from the dress. There are no reports of injuries to the child.

But Carter Brooks fired back at the criticism on her Facebook page by letting her friends know she is not letting the negative comments ruin her recent nuptials.

Haha I couldn't help but laugh! It's ridiculous but the baby was fine, so who cares. This doesn't make her a bad mom.

I think it's weird, but the baby is fine. It wasn't a situation that would harm the baby.
