Two females can get along just fine.
Now that you are going to have a mixed gender pair, it is going to be critical that you do everything necessary to prevent breeding.

Make sure you don't put a nest box OR anything in the cage that can possibly be used as a nesting site. Limit daylight hours to 10 per day but if you see signs of the budgies trying to mate, you'll need to decrease the daylight hours to 8 per day.
When either of the budgies come into condition, limit the amount of protein in their food at that time.

Best wishes!

That's brilliant thank you, what do people use to cover their cages so it's still breathable?

I use an actual cage cover but you can easily use a cotton tablecloth or curtain.
You can find inexpensive ones in a size that will be suitable for your cage at Walmart.
You want to use a breathable fabric and I recommend a dark color to block out more light. (My cage covers are black)

Cover the top, three sides and 1/3 of the way down the front of the cage.
Be sure you have a nightlight on in the room to give the budgies a bit of light to help prevent night-frights.
