"We had a date set, and that date has now passed," the former sixth-season The Bachelorette star, who fractured her femur in early June during a kickboxing session and subsequently underwent surgery at the end of the month, toldPeople on Tuesday.
"The decision to postpone [the wedding] was very difficult. I definitely shed some tears. But I want to walk down the aisle. I don't want to limp down the aisle."
While the couple -- who got engaged during The Bachelorette's sixth-season finale broadcast which aired last August after Fedotowsky selected Martinez as her final suitor -- had to hold off on getting married, Bachelroette insisted the wedding cancellation didn't stem from doubts or cold feet.
"In my mind, Roberto is my husband," Fedotowsky 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."
However, the happy Bachelorette couple didn't let their original wedding date pass without noting its significance. Instead of celebrating the actual occasion, they chose to celebrate their relationship.
"It was one of the best days we've had, just me and him," Fedotowsky added.
