Just over a year ago I proposed to my girlfriend, and we're getting married in a few months. We have everything we need but the place. She wants to have it at a church, to honor her grandmother. I'm perfectly fine with it, even though I'm atheist. My problem is, I have something else planned out.
I want to go to the rocky shores of lake superior, and get married on the beach. I didn't know that she wanted it to be at the church so bad.
You see, my grandparents gave me their house that they had up there and told me to start my family there. that's exactly what I want to do. The house is on lake superior, just a mile down from where I want to get married. I haven't told her this, I want to surprise her. Spend our first night as a married couple in our own house, instead of a hotel or an apartment. I know she'll love the house, she's been there twice before and couldn't stop talking about how beautiful it was.
She keeps trying to talk me into getting married at the church and all the pluses (Closer drive, no hotels, less gas). Should I tell her about the house or just give into the church?

Have you told her that you want to get married a the lake? Maybe you could tell her that without telling her about the house because the surprise would be amazing.
If it doesn't end up happening, it will be just as amazing of a surprise if you wait until you get back from the honeymoon.0
