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

To ‘Marie Jones’ below, ‘NO’ this is NOT the same man she said on Oprah was abusing her, that was her second husband – his name is Brian B. (can’t remember his last name).

Oh Marie, maybe will work but look what he did in the past:

Unauthorized Bio Claims Marie Osmond Attempted Suicide
March 8th, 2008 4:00pm EST A shocking new biography claims Marie Osmond suffered mental illness as a child and attempted suicide. Randy Jernigan’s expose also alleges Osmond lied about being abused as a child; suffered an eating disorder as a teen; lost her virginity at the age of 17 to late singer Andy Gibb; and split from her basketball player ex-husband Stephen Craig when she caught him naked in a hot tub with her personal assistant.

Very happy for them. She seems like a great person and deserves happiness.

This is the guy she divorced because he couldn’t deal with being Mr. Marie Osmond and continually cheated on her? If he’s going to behave himself this time around, well good for them. If not, I hope this wasn’t out of some misguided wish to not be alone.

Using the same wedding dress is such a great idea. It’s beautiful! Best wishes to both!

Marie looks prettier now than she did in 1982. Part of that could be the change in style – softer hair and better eyebrows :)

Congratulations,Marie.You deserve much happiness.Very impressive remarrying your first husband while I barely be in the same room as mind.My wedding dress lived in the garage in a box before being tossed into the dumpster when I sold the family house.
