Marie Osmond's Wedding Dress: Then and Now

Marie Osmond Wedding Dress

When Marie Osmond remarried first husband Stephen Craig on Wednesday, it wasn’t hard to find her something old: she simply reused her original wedding dress. The singing star pulled the Ret Turner gown — long-sleeved with a full skirt (so Catherine Middleton!) — out of her archives, updating it with a simpler veil and chunky pearls. The move wasn’t her original plan — a dress she’d had specially designed for the occasion wasn’t “right,” she tells ET — but it worked out perfectly. “I was cleaning out my garage and all of a sudden this box showed up in this pile of stuff … and it was this dress and it was five days ago. I’m not kidding,” she says. “I can’t breathe, but I’m in it.” Turner, a renowned Hollywood costume designer, actually clothed Osmond in her earlier years while he was working on Donny and Marie in 1977. An Emmy winner several times over, he also served as costume designer on programs like The Sonny and Cher Show and Mama’s Family, and won the Costume Designers’ Guild Award for lifetime achievement — presented by Osmond — in 2002. While Osmond didn’t end up requiring a wardrobe change for her private Las Vegas nuptials, groom Craig, for his part, did swap tuxes; when the couple first married in 1982, he wore white. —Kate Hogan

Good for them… I think they both look at lot better as mature adults… and how appropriate for her to wear the same dress… I agree, everyone deserves a second chance. I’m giving the love of my life from college a second chance after 17yrs. Hope it works out for us… for everyone. GREAT TO HEAR SOME GOOD NEWS FOR A CHANGE! GOOD LUCK TO THEM BOTH!

Is this the same man that she was on Oprah saying that he abused her or was it a different one? Congrats to them as long as hes not mistreating her!
