Solange's wedding reception was almost cancelled when the beautiful bride broke out in an allergic reaction soon after the ceremony. Hers and Beyonce's mum, Tina Knowles has now explained what caused the painful hives and how big sister Beyonce saved the day.
Speaking with Entertainment Tonight, Tina also shared more gist about Solange's special day, the inspiration, the adult only wedding reception after party and more.
'I just think the wedding epitomized Solange as a person, and her and Alan's artistic flare. Of course, like all weddings not everything went to plan, and Solange's big day was almost ruined when she broke out in painful welts between the ceremony and the reception.
'Solange went through the wedding and the sit down dinner and she was just fine. And then they had a second line in the streets of New Orleans and she was dancing so hard, I think she just go overheated. And the seafood, I think she had a reaction to it. So her face broke out in these welts.'
And then enters Beyonce and a whole lot of Benadryl.
'Beyonce took her back to the hotel and gave her Benadryl. And in two hours, she showed up at the reception and did the dance with her son and just danced all night and had a ball.'
Tina Knowles also gushed over the vows her daughter and now son-in-law shared.
'Oh my God the vows they were the most beautiful thing, there wasn't a dry eye on the place, they were just so heartfelt.'
While usually only the bride wears white, for this event every attendee dazzled in the colour. And that was not the only unusual aspect of the wedding day, as Tina revealed despite the posed picture for Vogue there was no bridal party, the picture instead celebrated the women that had made an impact on Solange's life.
She revealed that the reception after party was strictly a child free zone and that was why Beyonce's little Blue Ivy was not there.
'[Blue] didn’t get to come to the after party. [Julez] only got to come and do the dance and then he had to leave. Had to go to bed. It was a grown folks party.'
But, if Tina has her way, next event will be packed with children. Speaking of Destiny's Child star Kelly Rowland's new baby boy, whom Tina counts as a grandchild as Kelly and Beyonce are so close, she said she is looking forward to more grandchildren soon.
'I got two boys and a girl. Couldn't ask for better than that [but] I'm always ready for more grandbabies.'
