Marie Osmond's Wedding Dress: Then and Now

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

I’m so happy for Marie she had such a sring of bad luck and I pray that this is the start of more good blessings to come for her

Richard on

The man that she was married to in between her two fairytale weddings to Steve was Brian Blosil. He was the very physically and emotionally abusive husband that Oprah talked about in her emotional, and incredible, interview.

Good luck to both of them. Older and wiser, and a whole lot of life experience behind them, they should do just fine! What a great piece of positive news in these tough and depressing times.
