When she first denies him ("[getting married] is an honour that I dream not of") it's not really about Paris, it's more about Juliet just not wanting to get married yet. After all, she's just 13 -- the Nurse and her mother try to convince her that this is not too young.

Later when she says that Paris will "not make her a joyful bride" and that she would rather marry Romeo, the audience knows the motivation - she is married to Romeo at this point, she just can't tell anybody.
