Looks like there was some truth behind those rumors after all because US Weekly has exclusively confirmed that Solange Knowles and Alan Ferguson are getting married this weekend in New Orleans. Back in June, there were rumors circulating that the happy couple might be engaged after they embarked on a romantic getaway to Jamaica for Knowles' 28th birthday. However, there was never an actual confirmation on the matter, making us assume it was just another spoke on the perpetual gossip wheel. But now it seems there was some actual truth to the whole thing and I, for one, could not be more excited.
As of now, exact details about the wedding are being kept tightly under wraps, although US has managed to uncover the weekend itinerary, which includes a group movie night on Friday, Nov. 14, followed by the rehearsal dinner on Saturday, Nov. 15, and the actual wedding on Sunday, Nov. 16. And while I know I should probably be focusing mainly on the whole wedding ceremony part, I can't help but obsess over the idea of Solange, Beyonce, and Jay Z curling up with a bowl of popcorn and watching movies on a Friday night. It's just so awesomely normal and I can't believe it's part of the wedding schedule. Like they've actually set aside time to watch movies together. (At least I assume Beyonce and Jay Z are part of this select "group.") Either way, it's adorable.
So just in case they don't already have their movie selection mapped out, I thought I'd make a few helpful suggestions of what they should watch.
If you're looking to have a good time at a wedding, you might as well get tips from the masters themselves. Just take a few pages out of Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson's wedding rule book and you'll be the hit of the party in no time. (Not that Beyonce and Jay Z really need any help in that department, but still. The more you know!)
It's funny. It's disturbing. It's everything that could possibly go wrong before a wedding. Solange & Co. can just sit back, relax, and be thankful that no matter how stressful the planning might be, it's never going to get worse than this.
The Wedding Singer
Given that this weekend's wedding will be centered around a family of singers, this seems like an appropriate pick. Plus, you can never go wrong with an Adam Sandler-Drew Barrymore combo. You just can't.
Whether you're getting married or not, I think we can all agree that this movie is pretty much a great choice for any occasion. Nuff said.
Sandra Bullock. Ryan Reynolds. Betty White. What more could you of from a film?
Sure, the guys may not be as into this one, but it's a great musical centered around love — not just between a happy couple, but between a mother and daughter as well. Also, it involves Meryl Streep singing, dancing, and just all around being awesome. So there's that.
You know, because then you'll be watching Hitch right before getting hitched? Get it?
What? They don't all have to be wedding themed and this is just a fantastic movie. In fact, I'm going to go start watching it right now. BRB.
What Women Want
Take notes, gentlemen. Take notes
Made up of a truly impressive all-star cast, this film manages to cover a wide range of relationships in the best way possible. It may be complicated, but it's all well worth the effort.
Because I like to believe in my head that the Knowles family busts out into an acapella singing group all the time.
It's the ultimate hooker fairytale you never knew you wanted. You'll laugh. You'll cry. You'll fall in love with Julia Roberts all over again.
