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

The current wedding photo shows two confident & comfortable people very much in love. This current photo is more beautiful than the first wedding photo. I have been an Osmond fan for at least 40 years. I am very happy for them both and wish them much happiness and many blessings.

I remarried my 1st husband almost 20 years to the day we got divorced, that was in 1998 and it is great this time!It’s more common than you would think, people getting remarried.

What in the heck was she thinking? I seem to recall some tales of abuse and adultery…? Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on Marie! Did she actually put any thought into this?

Earth to all the morons. Celebrities don’t get on websites to read comments from you. I realize this may be hard to understand but they have lives. Love you Marie :) LMAO

After the last couple of years she’s had, Marie deserves all the happiness in the world. I hope they have many wonderful years together.
