Q: Our dream is to get married at an exclusive private-island resort, but there are no other accommodations nearby. Is it rude to expect people to fork over $375 per night (and that's just for a garden room!)?

A: It's not exactly rude, but unless most of your friends have money to burn, be prepared to get a lot of regrets on your RSVP cards. You may want to consider throwing a low-key bash when you return so your landlocked pals can celebrate your marriage with you.
