I am so sorry you’re going through this!  I have not been in this situation (knock on wood, my wedding’s in 3 months) so I don’t know what kind of advice I can offer, but it sounds like he’s just stressed and getting cold feet.  I hope you guys can work it out and he can get back to being excited about the wedding.

My heart breaks for you!  Maybe you guys should go on an old-fashioned pre-wedding-craziness date.  Just you two relaxing and reminding each other of the reasons why you’re getting married in the first place.  Leave all of the wedding chaos at home and enjoy each other.  This can be therapy for you, too!

I’m so sorry to hear this!  HUGS.

Has he said anything more than he feels you are rushing?  Any other things he’s mentioned?  

Has he ever mentioned maybe not rushing to get married before and maybe you haven’t heard it?

3 weeks before the wedding is crazy… but the last thing you want to do is drag him kicking and screaming to the alter.  

Is there anyone he can talk to (a couples counselor?) to sort out what he’s feeling?

Has he said what he feels will be different down the road?  

Not that it matters – but how old are you guys and how long have you been together?  Perhaps that plays a part?

I definitely suggest couples/marriage counseling.  It’s definitely something I’d do if it were in your shoes.

Wow, this SUCKS and I am so sorry you’re going through this. If it were my Fiance, I’d suggest he  call his mother. That’s what I do when he starts getting depressed or feeling unsure about things. Not certain whether that would work in this case, but a lot of times family (especially happily married family) can be helpful with relationship-type issues, and can be a reassuring presence.

@Carrie0226: How old is he? Marriage is a big step for everyone and it’s even bigger if you are young. Maybe he just realizes how big of a step it is. I’m sure everyone gets nervous before their wedding. I’m sure they go over in their heads if they are making the right decision. Maybe you should sit down and talk with him…calmly and let him know that it’s okay to be nervous and he needs to let everything be known right now. What is he nervous about? what does he have concerns about? What will waiting another year prove?

@Carrie0226: Did he give any explanation for the conversation?  I’m with you on not understanding how this could be the first sign of doubt.  Did he feel pressure to propose?  I can understand being scared that history will repeat itself, but if you’ve given him no reason to distrust you, it really doesn’t make sense why he’d be ok proposing and not wanting to go through with it.  I’m seriously hoping that he has some time to really think today and will hopefully come to you and tell you that it was just cold feet.  How did you end the conversation?

Oh, I am so sorry!  HUGS.  Was he sharing his fears with you, or was he actually looking to make a plan and start calling vendors?  I think it’s perfectly normal for people to be nervous.  I’m wondering how serious he is, or is he just venting?

Oh man, that’s super tough! I’m so sorry you are going through this. For sure talk with him. Is this a wedding or marriage issue? Meaning is he getting cold feet about being in front of everyone, the DJ, his family, etc. etc., or is he getting cold feet about being married? Maybe helping him sort that one out will help. I’m sending you good vibes!

You still have 3 weeks.  I hope he snaps out of it during this time.  Good luck.
