No it's not rude! This is your day and every bride should have as close to the day she wants as possible. You have been struggling for years to figure out what wedding plans are going to be best for you and your fiance and if a destination wedding is what you want, then you should have it. I recommend that you enlist the services of a planner whose expertise is in destination weddings, or use a travel agency that specializes in destination weddings. Depending on where in the world you would like to go, there could be different marriage requirements/paperwork to legally marry in the country you choose. Having an expert working on your behalf that is well versed on the legalities of getting married in another country will be invaluable to you. Once you have decided on where, provide your guests and close family with as much notice as possible so they can plan. You might not have the wedding that your future mother-in-law wants, but you will have YOUR wedding. Bon Voyage!
