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

She’s had so much surgery thru the years, he hasn’t. She looks like a fake Barbie, he looks great.

Why would she want to marry a cheater? AGAIN!

Nothing matures people like growing up and having experiences in life that teach them, give them wisdom and perspective. As a Mormon, Marie Osmond was pushed into a marriage when she was too young and inexperienced. What she called mental abuse back then might just have been her husband ignoring her as he watched football or acted like the traditional man was supposed to act. Obviously, they retained feelings for each other through the years and they share children together. This time Marie is making her own decision and hopefully she and Stephen Craig will become a team and share happiness and fulfillment.

The fact that it still fits is a good sign. Best wishes.

What a beautiful ending to that fairytale wedding so long ago. I remember reading about it and wishing I could afford a gown like that. While I can’t imagine remarrying my ex-husband (his wife might have something to say about that!) I am glad Marie and Steven found each other again. I suppose it was meant to be all along.

It’s amazing, but Marie is more beautiful now than she was 30 years ago. And, Steve Craig has matured into a handsome middle-aged man. Let’s all wish the couple a lifetime of happiness.
