Solange Has Won at Weddining

Today, Solange Knowles got married to her longtime LAVAH Alan Ferguson in New Orleans and pictures dropped and everyone has lost their minds. Why? BECAUSE SO MUCH FIERCENESS!

Solange Wedding

Looking like the angels in the thug mansion that Tupac was talmbout. I’m so here for this picture. *I* wanna get Solange’s wedding photo with her girls and put it on my wall. Just because the pic is so damb magnificent. WERK, FIERCE ANGELS. And Tina. BIIIISSSHHH listen. Coming out the house looking like a tall drink of good almond milk. SLAY, Mama Knowles! Sixty years old and FINER than frog hair.

Meanwhile, Matthew Knowles was nowhere to be found. He gotta sort out a couple of cases of his sperm landing on the uterus of two people who ain’t named Tina. All his dirt was gonna sully all the white clothes and dry cleaning bills are TOO DAMB HIGH. So yeah, he’s busy.

I bet somewhere, Kanye West is PISSED that he spent 4 days editing HIS wedding photo for Instagram and it didn’t #breaktheinternet. Yes, they got hella likes but people didn’t fall all over themselves. That picture is not memorable. Oh Kanye. He tries so hard. I bet he didn’t even get invited to this. When he asked Jay what he’s up to today, Mr Carter was like “Nothing. Just going to brunch.” He was all “Jay, wanna go to this new restaurant on Sunday Nov 16?” and Jay-Z was like “Me and Bey got this event. Next weekend, doe?” Now Kanye’s like “Oh. So that’s why Jay hasn’t replied to my WhatsApp message all day. I know he got it. There’s a double checkmark here.” >__> You know he is somewhere mad as hell.

Solange Wedding 3

I. LIVE.

By the way, the one smiling person in the main pic is Janelle Monae but people DO NOT recognize her when she isn’t in a tux. Now I understand why folks couldn’t figure out Superman was Clark Kent. You put Janelle Monae in a dress and fluff her fro out and people be like “who’s that?” She probably be at Target EVERYDAY and we can’t tell.

All I know is that I can’t wait to see the first person who tries to replicate the Solange Girls pic for their wedding. It’s gon be a Pinterest fail. If your friend sees this pic and thinks it’s a good idea for her special day, tell her to sit down for a second because the dragging she might face on these interwebs might be too much. It ain’t worth it.

But yall know what these #SolangeWedding pics mean, right? The number of all-white parties happening next summer will be triple the usual. Lemme get my all-white linen #alphets together NOW! I’ll be over here awaiting the invites to yall’s shindigs for Summer 2015. Especially in Chicago. Our country asses love us a good Ghost Party so you know it’s going down (basement) come June. And yes, Chicagoans are country. Blame the Alabama and Mississippi transplants. I love my city, doe. ALL WHITE STEPPER’S SET GAME PROPER!!!

The price of white fabric is bout to go up just from these Solange pics. I’ve been looking for a double-breasted white wool coat too so this surge pricing ain’t gon do me well. EVERY SINGLE PICTURE from this wedding is killing me softly. Even what she wore before the ceremony SLAYED.

Solange Wedding 2

THIS JUMPSUIT IS EVERYTHING. EVER-REE-THANG.

I also know that people are about to use these pics in all types of ways they’re not supposed to. The promoter who uses the Solange wedding pics for their all-white “Grown and sexy” club party flyer is a raggelly and classless wonder. It’s gonna happen, too. Some bamma is already planning an all-white Friday turn up and his graphic designer (who uses MS Paint) is putting together the collateral AS WE SPEAK, where he will use 7 fonts and 15 colors to tell people to come before 11pm for free entry and the only drink specials are for E&J. NO MA’AM.

Whew. Either way, shoutout to Solange for breaking the internet, winning hearts and doing it all on her own terms on her wedding day.

Also: if you didn’t think Solange is a style icon before, you were wrong. She has won. Solange has won all of weddinging.

P.S. I don’t even mind too much that Beyonce showed up dressed like Mariah Carey in that spaghetti strap dress with lucite heels.

    Everything about this is life giving. I’m especially here for Solange’s gold cuff bracelets. You know they’re just like Wonder Woman’s and that is the power that was used to keep Matthew Knowles away if he tried to crash.

    Shall not lie. from the moment the first picture dropped, been checking the internet for more. Those pics are all that and a bag of chips. FIERCE is right. I mean…the pantsuit was what I saw first…then I saw the pics of all the ladies..her standing there with the cape…oh no.

    And, a beautiful pic of the Family Carter – Blue Ivy looks like Jay just spit.her.out.

  13. November 16, 2014 at 10:04 pm

    Solange. Now SHE #wokeuplikedis

    These pics are FIERCE to the 10th power times infinity. The caped jumpsuit! The FRO! THE FRO! OMG! I’ve been saying for years that if I ever get married, I want a big ass fro and everybody looked at me sideways. Whenever I say it again and I get sideyed, I’ma just reach for a pic of Sol-Angel’s fierceness and drop it on their asses like BOOM! You’re right Luvvie, Solange has won. She has won the interwebs, fashion, style, fierceness, cool and weddinging. I wish her and her family all the very best!

      November 16, 2014 at 10:35 pm

      Yes yes yes. I am all the way here for the Bridal Fro and the Bearded Groom. And I ain’t even mad that her man is fiddysumthin. With his beautifully bearded self. Yes Sir.

      • November 16, 2014 at 10:40 pm

        I had no idea her boo was that old. He looks GOODT!

        Honestly, the fro was the first thing I noticed when I saw the pics. I was like C’MON FRO! Then I took in the dress and the jumpsuit and the cuffs and the bikes and the all-white-everything. The sight of a big, perfectly shaped cloud of hair has been known to make me verklempt. Lol! I was over here fanning my eyes.

        You know that beard has a lot of Just for Men combed all up and through. Must be the good isht too since it didn’t drip on all that white

  14. November 16, 2014 at 10:08 pm

    BTW Luvvie, I knew that was Janelle Monae from the minute I saw the pictures. I’d definitely recognise her at Target and freak out. Lol!

    Yes MA’AM!

    Queen Celestine Beyince is … she just is. Everything. Just standing there all poised and perfect like “I’m so glad my baby is the world’s fiercest fashionista, because otherwise I would be outshining her on her wedding day without even trying.”

    Now we just gotta wait for the churchiest wedding of the century (you know that’s how Michelle will do it) and my “growing up with Beyonstiny’s Child” experience will be complete.

    YASSSS LUVVIE!! you also slay the interwebs!!!!!

  17. November 16, 2014 at 10:20 pm

    I lost my mind when I saw this!!!! SLAY! Mama Tina look GOODT! And I’m kinda glad Beyonce is dressed like Mariah Carey…she looks like a regular chick. I love it! Solange looks amazing 😀

    • November 16, 2014 at 10:22 pm

      Mama Tina looks GOODT and DELIVERT!

  18. November 16, 2014 at 10:21 pm

    Just saw some pics indicating that Solange had an allergic reaction to something and broke out in hives. Oh dear! That’d just ruin my day and piss me the hell off. Ugh!

    So, blue-shoes-girl thought today was the day she needed to be an individual? She must be a cousin. Only family gets away with trying to get in the way.

    • November 16, 2014 at 10:37 pm

      Yeah that’s cousin Angie Beyince. She also looks like she’s in “The Ring” but I’ma let her have it on today.

    Kanye mad people more impressed with this than that stupid flower wall he took 4 days to edit.

    Angie & Brad mad Julez wore a plain white suit and white sneakers and didn’t make his mama put his scribblings all over her fly white cape.

    Solange wins!

    All that wedding mythology about the bride wearing white to be the center of attention? Yeah… Everyone is in white and yet none captures your gaze like Solange. If I could just touch the hem of her cape, I shall be blessed with heavenly edges…

    • Flyy
      November 17, 2014 at 9:09 am

      THIS.

      I’m getting married soon and idc who wears white… it’s my wedding and BISHE if you that confused about who the bride is b/c someone else has on white, then maybe you should leave. Go home confused guest, you’re drunk.

      • Tonia
        November 17, 2014 at 5:30 pm

        Yes! Her pocketbook( showing my age) did NOT have to be on displayed to get attention. That’s why the nameless one stays losing IMO.

    • November 17, 2014 at 9:55 am

      You touch that cape and your edges be LAYDT for the rest of your life!

  26. November 17, 2014 at 4:25 am

    Solange looks FIERCE!!!! SHe’s just so georgeous I wish I was her. Her husband is a lucky man. And her fro is perfect. I don’t know who did her hair for the wedding, but that person deserves a thumb up. Seeing her like that make me kinda want to try having a fro. A thing I really like about Beyonce is that she never tries to outshine her little sister. She’s such a good big sis. By the way that girl in the blue shoes, is she serious? Like she couldn’t find a pair of white shoes. But whatever, there was only one queen and that was Solange.

    By the way, Luvvie you’re completely right, somwhere Kanye must be mad as hell. And I’m sure Kim must be like why didn’t I think about it first!

    Solange’s wedding couture more than makes up for that 1980s prom dress she fished out the dumpster for the Met Gala elevator hijinks. Fierce.

  30. […] (Side note: I’m so glad I got married earlier this month because, as one of my favorite bloggers, Luvvie, so eloquently said: Solange has won at weddinging). […]

    So, I kinda think Mama Tina was supposed to be graciously posing on the floor in the 2nd pic too (for symmetry), but told them “Do you see me in this dress? I’m not getting on no one’s floor” and they dealt.

      Okay…so you KNOW the photographer was getting everyone placed for the second shot and then turned to Ms. Celestine and was like…”ummm…yes…right where you are. Perfect” The photographer’s assistant whispered “it’s not symmetrical…she needs to sit down” and the photographer was like “Do YOU want to go tell a grown, mature and sure woman in her white ensemble to sit down…on the floor???” Yeah…that’s how that went down.

    Now y’all know good and well if this was some unknown chicks picture y’all would be saying they look like a coven of DAMB witches…’cause they do! Don’t fake….
    Now, Solo is drop dead GORGEOUS. Girl is taking my breath away, but summa these folks in this picture look mighty homely. I’m not gonna point out who cause y’all KNOW you already see’em. These pics are ok. I’m not over the moon about them. Especially when they’re giving me American Horror Story realness. I guess New Orleans was quite fitting….chile please….

    #ClutchingMyPearls … I am speechless … these pics are everything and giving me so much life right now that I’m gon’ have to find me a future ex-husband just for the sake of mimicking the pics

  38. November 17, 2014 at 7:14 pm

    weo weo weo… now THIS is a wedding ensemble. Appropriate, neat, I’d even say angelic if that were not religious cliché. I’m not into worshipping celebrities for other than their talent, so I won’t focus on Famous Sister -though she looks some woman in that alphet, too.
    What is not cliché is the way they pulled this all off. And that pic on the sidewalk beside the groom, SensualWithoutBeingKimK. I kind of wonder what she (KK) might have felt as she saw the pix, that is, if there were any feelings left after she ate her heart out.

    • November 17, 2014 at 7:37 pm

      PS: Counting the minutes #wellnotreally before we get all manner of Illuminati depiction/explanation of the pix, especially the second one. A good thing my dambs are running so scarce these days.
      Oh, and Cousin It in the Blue Shoes, well maybe some other time. Nice that someone tamed her #spreadeagle assitude for the second pic, doe not her #wigmalfunction

    That photo is epic…but I do wonder why no one insisted on an outfit change for the girl in the last row wearing what appears to be a cotton pj pant and matching top.???

    November 17, 2014 at 9:56 pm

    Solange did every last piece of that and then some! Love every single thing about it!

    But why for (yes, why for) did some ratchets call themselves reenacting this in an Applebee’s? Looking like broke down cheerleaders 20 years after they have graduated high school. And before anyone asks, no, they are not in white. #HotMonkeyMess

    It looks perfect until you look at the girl in the back with the silver stripes and wonder why she went to The Limited Too for her outfit. The girl in the right on the floor made her pants out of a crocheted doily. But Solange looks amazing enough to cancel them out ’cause you know they were her wedding party obligation invites.
