Solange Knowles to Wed Alan Ferguson This Weekend

Solange Knowles and Alan Ferguson

Love is in the air!

Solange Knowles and her longtime boyfriend, Alan Ferguson, are set to marry in New Orleans this weekend, sources confirm to Us Weekly.

The nuptial news comes as a surprise since an engagement for the 28-year-old singer was never even mentioned. The younger Knowles seems to be borrowing a page from Beyoncé , who wed Jay Z in a similarly secret ceremony in 2008.

According to the source, Solange and Ferguson are planning a number of weekend festivities that will lead up to their walk down the aisle. On Friday, Nov. 14, the couple and their guests will enjoy a movie night together before Saturday’s rehearsal dinner. And finally on Sunday, Nov. 16, Knowles and Ferguson will make it official in front of friends and family.

This will be the second wedding for Solange, who wed Daniel Smith in February 2004, when she was 17 and he was 19. The couple continues to co-parent their 10-year-old son Julez.
