Gerrit and Aleska said: I DO!!! at the end of 2020
We met them for the first time at a friends' wedding back in 2019 (it feels so long ago) and they booked us before they had a date or venue.
They wrote this amazing testimony 🥰
"Planning a wedding can be very stressful but planning a wedding in the midst of a pandemic...was a nail-biting experience! When you plan your Dream Wedding one of the most important aspects would certainly be for your guests to have an amazing time.
This is where U-One and Christelle from Southern Sound stepped up and MAN OH MAN...did they do EXACTLY that!!!
We met the DJ Duo in 2019 while attending a friend’s wedding, and I told my fiancé that we ABSOLUTELY had to have them as our DJ at our BIG DAY!
Our whole wedding was arranged around their availability!!!
Christelle is VERY resourceful with finding the best wedding suppliers and kept us updated as the BIG Day approached.
Our guests LOVED U-One’s energy and his passion for music.
Needless to say, he kept the dance floor occupied throughout the WHOLE evening!
Thank you for making our day memorable!!! Gerrit and myself would definitely recommend Southern Sound!"
It was AWESOME to be part of your journey and going through all the motions of 2020 with you.
Thank you for trusting us with your best moments
Due to curfew, their party had to end at 22:00, but we promised to make it up in round 2 for sure!
Ching-Ching on a new friendship, on love ❤️, great music 🎶, and all the amazing moments in between it all.
BAIE dankie julle twee awesome mense!!! Julle ROCK!

Spread LOVE...not GERMS!!
Let's get married during a pandemic! Skip the hugs + kisses and stay authentic.
As a Wedding Vendor I feel that we have a responsibility to do what we do, not only ethically but also with integrity.
We need to work smarter and do things differently.
This is how you can ensure that you, your guests, and providers on the day are protected in a safe +
Let's party like there is a pandemic.
From our side, we've also got you covered:
2 x Microphone Stands - for a no-touch or sharing of surfaces.
3 x Cordless Microphones including protective covers (microphone windscreens)
We change this frequently and wash it after every event or wedding.
You can still party like a Rockstar, even during this pandemic, and in a Covid-Compliant way.
Let us celebrate love in a social distancing kind of style and look after + protect each other.
Have a look at these awesome ideas for your special day!
Happy Wedding Planning!

What a privilege to celebrate the love of our stunning couple in this beautiful way
TODAY I want to make a tribute to our beautiful Wedding Industry.
We have learned so much during this year, and even though it was tough, it made us as a community stronger 💡💫
Grateful that we can do what we love and that we can grow together.
Even though our crafts are diverse, and even though our "colleagues" for the day are different too last week...Our passion remains the same, and it's all because two people fell in love.
Teamwork makes the Dreamwork!
Cheers from us to you.
Thank you to all our awesome couples, and a HUGE SHOUT OUT to all the Wedding Vendors out there!

If you think the single ladies enjoy the bouquet toss, have you seen the bachelors round up for the garter?
Last week I mentioned how wedding traditions are there to be broken and to create your own ;)
But of all the traditions, what is your favourite?
We love the #GarterToss, especially when you decide to prank your new hubby :D
And if you do decide to go that route or the MC or his best man jumps in with a quick change of plan, make sure that the song you choose is at least 3 minutes long.
Here is our latest playlist for some song ideas: #GarterToss
Be safe and have a lekker week!
Fast track to the night of the party on your wedding day:
Speeches - DONE
Food - Served
First dance - DONE
Party = LIFT Off
We are all still talking about traditional weddings and how things must go according to the invisible Wedding Rule book.
I always say, create your own tradition in your happy place + and bring in as much of your personal style.
Forget about all the conservative rules that were created by a different generation of people, even before our time.
It's 2020, and we're back in the future.
Yes, even though there is a pandemic in the world, it's still 2020
It's your wedding, and it's the most expensive party of your life!
Remember, it's your party and you can do what you want to!
Now that the first dance is over and your party is
LIFTING OFF in 3...2...1 !!!
Your MC will announce that it's time for all the single ladies to make their way to the dancefloor...
Calling all the single (or not yet married) people to the dancefloor is one of the highlights of your night, so why not make it different and awesome.
PLEASE | ASSEBLIEF (sit sagter daardie ge Doef doef ...haha - just kidding )
But really on a serious note:
Our only request (and we are sure that most DJs will agree with this *very* overplayed song):
Please, we can't do Beyonce, Single Ladies! any more...there are better songs and BETTER songs for you!
The new favourite is none other than an Afrikaans OU, strutting around his town with the confidence of a peacock in full swing and an ego oozing with next level confidence.
His name is Adriaanus and he is still asking all the girls what their names are - hahahahaha :D
Dames by Biggy
Love it or hate it…you can’t get away from it!
On cue, we'll #PumpUpTheJam and call your entire tribe of beautiful ladies to the dancefloor.
You will hear the all nervous giggles plus a few Whooohoooos here and there as everyone gathers for the big jump. (#JumpUp Jump up and get down)
Scroll down to the end of this post and see how crazy our own wedding party was :D
We decided to involve all of our guests to play along.
**No Age restrictions
**Relationship Status - Who cares
We created our own rules: Unrestricted TOTAL Party Chaos, and just the way we wanted it to be.
Have a Happy Humpday and enjoy the downhill to Friday from here!!
