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

They both look wonderful and happy. I hope it works out for them this time. Congratulations Marie and Steven.

This seems most unhealthy. We’ll see.

30 years later I think Marie looks fantastic. Steve and Marie were not married very long the first time around. He is NOT the husband that was abusive. I’m pretty shocked about the news because there was no hint of them being reunited. But it’s pretty great since they did have a son together. Marie has gone through a lot of heartache. She deserves happiness. If Steve makes her happy that’s great. Good luck to both of them. Like the Tony Bennett song “love is better the second time around.”

I have to say I was shocked when I read on TMZ that they were getting married (again). I didn’t even know she was seeing him (again). I hope it works this time around. (according to my mom… she claimed mental cruelty as a reason for their divorce the first time around.)

I just have a question…does anyone know if Stephen Craig was also married before he reunited with Marie?


HA!! I am indifferent to what I think…. will he deal with being Mr. Osmond again and making the “motivaional speaker” rounds will expose him to a lot of females who will steal his heart from Marie again…. she could not have dated him long because a picture would have surfaced… Her good friend Mary Hart will get the exclusive story on what was going on in her brain… He could cheat again…. ???????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

I am deeply concerned they are both making a serious mistake. I do not mean to be unkind, it is just one of the reasons why their first marriage was brought to an end was mental cruelty (if the reports at the time were correct). I think Marie is unsuited for marriage. Her (Marie’s) track record is not good she has one broken engagement and 2 divorces. I think it would be best for her to remain single for life for her sake and the sake of her children. Marriage appears to be hard on Marie. I think she is best suited for the single life. Marie is part of a large and loving family she will never be alone. I guess all anyone can do now is simply hope for the best.
