For all you bride-to-be’s, take a lesson from Ali Fedotowsky: No kickboxing before your weddings. The former “Bachelorette” is postponing her wedding to Roberto Martinez due to her kickboxing injury that left her with a fractured femur.

“We had a date set, and that date has now passed,” she told People on Tuesday. “The decision to postpone [the wedding] was very difficult. I definitely shed some tears.”

However, the 26-year-old, who underwent surgery in July, knows it was the best decision. “I want to walk down the aisle,” she said. “I don’t want to limp down the aisle.”

Still, she adds, she feels no need to rush down the aisle. “In my mind, Roberto is my husband,” she said. “We live together; we do everything together; we plan for the future together; we fight just like a good old married couple. The only thing that’s not saying “I’m married” is another ring on my finger and a piece of paper.”
