He makes it sound like your finances are separate. if that’s true, theN spend your money how you want to. He spends his on crap and you spend yours on a party.

Honestly, no one deserves any parties.  If you don’t have the money for it, that sucks.  It sounds like you two need to discuss him heading back to work, because it sounds like you’re having a hard time with him not working.

@BrideToBe14:  Um, screw him! He’s being a dick. Have fun at your luncheon 🙂 he can’t tell you you can’t go.

You made the money? You spend the money as you see fit. If he thinks there isn’t enough in the family budget to afford one party, he’s welcome to start contributing again!

@BrideToBe14:  No one deserves a party, especially one they can’t pay for.

I’m under the impression that the Bride usually doesn’t pay for the Bachelorette party though. Are you planning something differently where you would be paying?

He was wrong for telling you not to have the Luncheon when you aren’t the one paying for it. That’s a lovely gesture on your mom’s part and she is entitled to spend her money however she wants.

And I don’t know how much money he has put away, but if he isn’t using it to help pay wedding expenses or living expenses then he needs to start doing so. And I agree with a PP that said you two need to seriously discuss him heading back to work.

Are your fiances separate now? Will you guys merge finances after marriage? If so, he’s probably treating “your money if my money, and vice versa” and probably feels that a party is an unnecessary expense giving the amount of your student loans.

@BrideToBe14:  Sounds like you two aren’t working as a team and he is being a dick. You need to talk about him working. You need to talk about finances. No one ever deserves a party, but it shouldn’t be “I have more money than you so you have to work and don’t deserve anything”. 

My FI is in vet school and accumulating student loans because you can’t really get vet school paid for through scholarships. I would never dream of holding that over his head. I would expect him to work when he is done, but we discussed that. I am working right now (and going to school) and when we are married his money=my money, his debt = my debt. We work as a team. He pulls his weight when he can. I would never treat him like that. 

This isn’t really about the party, this about respect. Both of you need to discuss finance and respect each other.

First, why would you be paying for a bachelorette party? That is generally something hosted by your maids and they should either cover your costs or plan something that you can afford.

Second, nobody “deserves” a bachelorette or bridal luncheon. But that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t have them, if you want them.

Third, if he doesn’t want a bachelor, that’s fine, but doesn’t mean you shouldn’t have a bachelorette, if your girls have offered to host one. You guys should either make financial decisions together (in which case this should be a discussion) or should keep separate finances (in which case you can do what you want with your money).

@BrideToBe14:  I agree, while 250 isn’t that much, but in his eyes, thats 250 paid off on your student loans. lol

Just talk to him and tell him why it’s important to you. I think putting it in terms of “I deserve it” probably isn’t the best approach. No one deserves a party (except homecoming party for soldiers! =))

I don’t get along great with anyone who tells me what I can and can’t do…so this is totally rubbing me the wrong way.

I’m pretty sure he can suck it! If he can spend “his” money on video games and movies, you can spend “your” money on whatever you want!
