Bridal Fashion Goes Glamorous & Green from the Inside & Out

The "Double Dare" Gown by Hanna Hartnell

Santa Monica, California based gown designer Hanna Hartnell, whose beautiful and Hollywood glamorous gowns have been worn by celebrities from Barbara Streisand to Gwyneth Paltrow, has designed a real triple threat gown that Your Las Vegas Wedding Concierge thinks is a fantastic idea.

I received an email today from Hanna about this sexy  "Double Dare" gown she has designed that is both pocketbook and green friendly. This wedding gown style has a lot going for it on the INSIDE!

The "Double Dare" gown collection is very attractively priced for a bridal gown at $1,200-$1,800, but with a completely different color fabric, all you truly savvy and stylish soon to be newlywed readers of mine can get double use by turning it out and stepping out to another occasion in a whole new dress! 

"Here’s how it works – by simplifying the sensuous elegance inherent to her gowns, she found that the sophisticated construction allowed her to line the gowns in the same silk as the gown itself – but with a different divine color the dress becomes REVERSIBLE! Available in three different designs, a well placed side slit gives a peek at the gown’s secret life to be lived at some future date… a guest at another’s wedding, a dressy night on the honeymoon or a slow dance on their anniversary. A glorious flower pin made of both colors pulls everything together perfectly on each side.

As an avowed “greenie”, Hanna wanted the gowns to have a double impact – and what could be more Green and Financially sustainable than a reusable, recycled and reduced wedding gown – if you want to cut your gown to dinner length, they'll be happy to do it for you at Hartnell. A double treat for your checkbook, the planet and you!" *From Hanna Hartnell PR Email.*

Love it!  

I have always encouraged my brides to consider double duty gowns that are definitely "bridal" but can perhaps carry them through to the honeymoon and beyond; especially with the anything goes nature and sexy sophistication of Las Vegas. These sleek, glamorous gowns (as with all of Hanna's designs), remind me of the way women dressed to go out on the town here with their handsome debonairly dressed gentlemen grooms. I would love to to see that trend return. Nothing looks sexier and more stylish than a happy, lucky-in-love, good looking and well turned out couple; not just in Las Vegas, but anywhere!
