Channel Desert Chic in Your Bridal Gown

OC has a range of gowns that exude desert princess vibes and would be the perfect fit for your sunny day. Channel fire goddess in these bridal gowns below!

Come meet our beautiful stylists in our Sydney or Melbourne showroom and enjoy the OC experience! Our trained staff will be able to hear your vision for your big day and select gowns that will suit your wedding and your personality. We are also offering online appointments for our wonderful interstate brides or anyone who can't make it to a showroom.


Floral Decor


Emphasise your sunset vibes with a burnt orange floral arrangement. Lean into rust tones with native leaves and freshly coloured roses. Darker tones can be incorporated into dramatic bouquets with wine petals and eye-catching waratah flowers. Dreamy, cloud-like pampas grass should be introduced throughout your arrangements to establish an eclectic, fall vibe! Your bouquets are likely to be included in so many photos - so don't miss the opportunity to create a classy, sunset theme!

Consult with your florist beforehand and let them be artistic with your arrangements. Pick your favourite blooms and watch the magic happen. If you have a favourite flower, let them find a way to bring that into your special day. Your florist is your wedding day best friend and they have so much knowledge to bring. Go for in season flowers to have a healthy and glowing bouquet on the wedding day.
