"Delay this marriage for a month, a week/ Or, if you do not, make the bridal bed in that dim monument where Tybalt lies." Why is this quote significant?

Juliet is desperate. She does not want to marry Paris and her options any options for being with Romeo have now ended. She appeals to her mother to stall the wedding but of course her mother is not receptive to her pleas. Mother is more concerned about her next party than anything her daughter might say or feel.
