Then, when lunchtime came, Brinnette changed into a striking number by Scalo.

It was this stunning yellow design of her XiTsonga traditional dress that set social media into a frenzy.

The couple crossed paths about four or five years ago when Gezane sent her a direct message. Brinnette owns a beauty spa in Riviona. gathered that the couple met for the first time on Themba's birthday in May 2015: "Nothing happened and then last year again in May we decided to try it out. I gave him a chance last year May.”

Whatever Themba did the second time around worked. On the 100th day of the couple dating, Themba popped the question while they were having a candlelit dinner. He gave her 100 roses and asked for her hand.

Linda Moeketsi, their event planner, said their traditional wedding celebration was a one-da event that took nearly a month to plan.

According to SowetanLIVE, Moeketsi said the bride wanted her wedding to be a mix of XiTsonga and modern.

Traditional wear was obviously at the forefront of this stunning affair:

The couple's white wedding will be in May: “In May, because clearly May has become our special month, we will have our white wedding," she said.

Seopela said she's super excited about her next wedding ceremony.

And this ceremony promises to be just a glamorous. Again, the bride will wear two outfits.

One dress will be made by designer Gert Johan Coetzee and the second will be done by Diaan Daniels. She’s also enlisted the services of Zavion Kotze as her wedding planner.
