By Yolanda Spivey

Every bride wants her wedding day to be pretty as a picture and perfect in every way. But unfortunately, this wasn’t the case for Solange Knowles.

The 28 year old singer, songwriter and DJ wed Alan Ferguson in New Orleans on Sunday November 16 at the New Orleans Museum of Art.  Upon leaving the venue, Solange was spotted with red lumps all over her face and neck. It turns out she was suffering from a food allergy and broke out in hives.

The next day she took to her Instagram, giving a big shot out to Benadryl.  She wrote:

“Yesterday, I had the best day of my life and ended it with an abundance of peace, love over flowing through me like never before. Words only understate the feelings I experienced, but I want to thank you for all of your beautiful sentiments. I’m now one, with the one.”

“Last but not least….:) Shout out to Benadryl yo, lol. NOTHING was gonna stop me from having my mother and son dance with Julez. My baby killed it and will forever remain my favorite dance parter of all time. My heart will forever smile reliving the feeling our lil happy feet together.”

It’s refreshing to see the singer have such a great attitude in regards to this brief medical mishap.

BlackDoctor.org states that hives, also known as dermographia or skin writing, are “raised, itchy red welts with adjacent flares” and “appear wherever the skin is scratched or where belts and other articles of clothing run against the skin.”

Hives can be triggered by “allergic reactions to medications, foods or other substances, direct physical stimulation such as temperature extremes, water, sun and physical exercise.”  They further state that “stress and nervousness” can also trigger hives.

Well, were happy that this hive incident didn’t ruin Solange’s big day.  May she and her husband have a happily ever after.
