Run Away Bride - Just How Old Is Maggie Supposed to Be?
Julia Roberts is not made-up for this movie to appear any older than she is in real life, so one would assume that her character (Maggie) is in her early 30's. But think about the video of Maggie's first wedding, the one where everyone's dressed as hippies, etc. Even if you take extreme liberties -- say that wedding was taking place in the mid-seventies and that Maggie was 17 or 18 years old at the time -- that would still make her at least 40 years old in present day when the story takes place. One possible "out" to explain this is that the story doesn't take place in present time, but rather sometime in the 1980's. But if that's the case there are other inconsistencies (e.g. the rather late model car that Richard Gere's driving) that come into play.

Here's a thought: maybe it was a theme wedding.

Well, as you can plainly tell, Gil (The one marrying Maggie at the time) is really into music and the 70's etc. So, MAYBE, that was the theme of the wedding. Because when Maggie is telling Ike things wrong with her, she says she was trying to be what she thought those guys wanted her to be. So that was part of her being what Gil wanted her to be.

It could have been later than mid-seventies, you know. Even today there are people who dress and act like hippies. There's not very many, but they do exist.

I agree with the other posts, this seemed to be a theme wedding, she tells the priest (2nd prospective husband)that 10 years ago they had their tounges down each others throats, so you figure she had to be 18-20ish wen she was going to marry the hippie.
