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

You people who are being so critical of her for marrying Steve again …. most of you are confusing him with her second husband who abused her. Brian Blosil was the abuser … not Steve Craig. People mature and change ….. neither of them are the same people they were when they got married the first time. I wish them both a very long and happy life together!!

I think Marie looks amazingly similar in both pics, except for new teeth it’s easy to see she is the same gal! Groom has a few pounds on but same smile [except whiter teeth] Little change considering the years passed. Good luck to them both

Thanks to “Dancing With The Stars” (with a little help from the diet product she endorsed), she was able to fit in her original gown. Congratulations!
