I can sympathize with wanting to have the “wallets” approve.  I don’t think you should compromise what you want and have it in her yard, but I don’t think you should exclude her input either.  Trust me, as the checks get written, it’s much smoother if she doesn’t feel dragged along and disregarded.

Maybe there’s some way you can “sell” her this venue?  Or maybe she will hate it less than you think?  Can’t hurt to try!

Otherwise I would encourage looking and finding something together – it might be nice bonding time, and it gets her on board emotionally for the big financial drain.  (I wouldn’t include her in little details, but the big ticket stuff, yeah.  My mom saw the top two venue choices and approved, and she’s attended every catering tasting, the highest expense, but you probably don’t have to go that far, I was just getting weird input from her and my dad so I felt it was a good move.)
