Ali Fedotowsky and Roberto Martinez are still planning on walking down the aisle. Walking being the operative term - it's out of the question right now.

Since her knee surgery in July, she has not been able to work out, she told THG in an exclusive interview last week. Once she heals, she'll reassess!

"I don't want to limp down the aisle!" she told Us Weekly.

Another reasons for postponing her nuptials? She doesn't want to overshadow [recent Bachelorette couple] Ashley Hebert and J.P. Rosenbaum.

"She really wants her wedding next summer," says a source.

Not that there's a rush. As Ali Fedotowsky said last week, "I want to be married, but when the time is right. In my mind, we are already married."

ABC will reportedly film the affair when it happens.

Ali and Roberto: Will they make it?

Ali Fedotowsky and Roberto Martinez are serious about getting married.

So much so, the engaged Bachelorette couple almost did it quickie-style in Vegas! They decided against it, but only because they want a real wedding.

After the twosome watched Jason and Molly Mesnick renew their vows, "I was like, 'Maybe we should just go with them and get married," Ali revealed.

Will Ali and Roberto make it to the altar?

But "that probably would have upset a lot of people" so the pair, who plan to spend Christmas in Tampa with his family, are focusing on plans for a 2011 affair.

Said Ali Fedotowsky, "I've been looking at wedding things and I'm always like, 'That looks tacky. Maybe it's just the ones I've seen are really matchy, matchy."

"I want to make it a little different. Very light and air, I guess, is my theme."

Ali Fedotowsky and Roberto Martinez are enjoying their engagement, planning their wedding and just living life together since The Bachelorette season ended.

Their life is going to be a family-friendly one, too.

Not only has the San Diego-based cutie turned down the offer to get nude for Playboy, she's even turned down offers of free gifts from the men's magazine.

When Ali and Roberto stopped by the Playboy Jeans table at the gifting suite at a recent event, they eschewed any offerings made available by Hugh's rag.

Probably for the best. Aside from that alleged old topless pic her ex is supposedly trying to sell, only Roberto Martinez will be seeing Fedotowsky full-frontal.

Roberto recently revealed to Radar that their relationship is still going strong. “I’m not letting her go,” he said of his bride-to-be. Who can blame him, right?

Whether Ali Fedotowsky and Roberto Martinez actually get married is anyone's guess, if only given the track record of The Bachelor and Bachelorette.

The numbers don't lie, and the numbers are 2-for-20.

Still, assuming their spring wedding takes place as scheduled, the engaged twosome plans to keep it basic, from the ceremony to the music played.

“I want it to be simple: one person, one instrument and that’s it,” Ali Fedotowsky says. “I think absolutely a violinist for that. My favorite music is like Jack Johnson, Schuyler Fisk … people who sit down with a guitar and sing."

"That’s what I want at our wedding - that rawness.”

“Our wedding will be a lot of dancing and celebrating,” she continues. “A live band, and absolutely salsa dancing. Every kind of dancing! I’m actually envisioning Roberto and I making up a dance — a funny, quirky dance that people laugh at.”

Hopefully it won't involve any of this stuff. Wowza.

When asked if they’ve chosen a first-dance song yet, Fedotowsky hints that “Bendita tu luz,” a song Martinez introduced to her, may be the one.

“It’s beautiful,” the future bride says. “It was our first weekend together in our hideaway house and he put it on, and we laid in bed and we were holding each other, and he said, ‘This song makes me think of you.’ It’s our own organic song.”

However, if it were up to Roberto Martinez, they might choose a different melody ... “Roberto loves the Lion King song,” she shares. “It’s so cute.”

They just got engaged on The Bachelorette finale, bringing in big ratings for ABC. So ... will Ali Fedotowsky and Roberto Martinez tie the knot on TV next?

On Live with Regis and Kelly today, they say they haven't ruled it out. "We've talked about it a little bit," Ali said of a TV special. "Definitely a possibility."

"[But] not because we want to be on TV again."

So for the money then. Hey, it's honest! Ali said a TV wedding could "be practical for our marriage, our life, our relationship. Weddings are expensive and [Roberto] has a huge family. When I met his mom, she said 700 people will be at it!"

Kelly Ripa concurred: "Let ABC pay for it!"

Should Alberto marry on a Bachelorette special?

"We figure we are in love," Ali Fedotowsky said, further explaining her reasoning. "We can invest that [wedding fund] money and invest our whole lives."

Jason Mesnick and Molly Malaney were the most recent (and only the second ever) couple from the franchise to get hitched on TV, marrying in March.

As for Bachelorette runner-up Chris Lambton, who she sent packing before their final date," Ali said, "I'm sort of glad I went through the motions, but at the end with Chris, I had to let him go ... I just had to be with Roberto ... I think he'll be okay."

Roberto Martinez isn't sure: "I don't think so. He took it really bad."

TV wedding or not, will Ali and Roberto last?

She's no longer The Bachelorette after an emotional finale, but if all goes according to plan in the coming months, Ali Fedotowsky will soon go by another name:

The Bride.

Ali in Pink

Hunky Roberto Martinez popped the question Monday night on ABC, and is apparently serious about making the Massachusetts native his wife in short order.

“In the spring, we’re thinking,” Ali said when asked about when she’d like to marry her new fiance, who she chose over the broken-hearted Chris Lambton.

While their wedding will likely be a big event - “Her mom wants like 700 people,” Martinez said - the couple already extended an invitation to a VIP guest.

We're not talking about host-pimp Chris Harrison, either.

Asked by Jimmy Kimmel if they’d invite President Obama, who was not invited to Chelsea Clinton‘s wedding, Fedotowsky replied, “Absolutely, if they’ll come.”

We wouldn't bank on that, but either way, it looks like a wedding actually taking place for these lovebirds is 20 times more likely than, say, Jake and Vienna.

Spending five days together for every 10 days apart while the show aired, because of demands of the show, their relationship evolved out of necessity.

“We played games,” Ali said of entertainment in sequestration. “We made up handshakes.” Roberto adds, "I learned how I'm supposed to eat popcorn."

So there you go. Ali and Roberto are still together. But will they make it to the altar? The show's track record is not good, but the pair is not worried.

“We have so much faith in our relationship,” says Fedotowsky. “Every day we tell each other, ‘You are my priority. We’re going to put each other first.’”

Following their somewhat surprising engagement Monday on The Bachelorette season finale and their emotional After the Final Rose reunion, we can happily report that yes, Ali Fedotowsky and Roberto Martinez are still together.

We may not have seen the last of them on ABC, either.

Amid recent breakups of Jillian Harris and Ed Swiderski, and more scandalously Jake Pavelka and Vienna Girardi, the idea of Ali Fedotowsky and her man making it to the altar will obviously have skeptics. But they're off to a good start.

Roberto hasn't slept with half of Chicago during his sequestration period like Ed, nor is he insane, controlling and altogether phony like Jake.

As for Ali and Vienna ... we don't have to explain.

Ali and Roberto are moving to San Diego and planning a Spring 2011 wedding!

The two certainly appeared happy and overjoyed to be reunited in their appearances on Jimmy Kimmel Live and Good Morning America last night and today.

Will we soon see them on ABC's other hit reality series? The new cast of Dancing with the Stars will be unveiled August 30 during (what else) Bachelor Pad.

According to reports, both Ali Fedotowsky and Roberto Martinez have been asked to be on DWTS, a la Jake. We suspect one or more will accept that offer.

As for the next Bachelor, what we're hearing is that last night's runner-up, Chris Lambton, can have the gig if he wants it. Not a surprise there in the least.

With his classy exit on Monday's Bachelorette finale, and having already cemented his place as a major fan favorite, it's the IDEAL setup for The Bachelor.

The question is whether he does it. Unlike Jake, poor Chris seems very genuine and does not seem hell bent on becoming famous. So will see ... and hope!

As for Ali and Roberto: Will they last? Vote below!

We have absolutely nothing against Roberto Martinez, to whom Ali Fedotowsky got engaged last night on The Bachelorette finale. It's just that, well ...

How can you not be devastated for poor Cape Cod Chris?

Chris Lambton distinguished himself as the better choice in our minds, although we respect how Ali handled things and wish her and Roberto the best.

Can they stand the test of time, or is she following an infatuation that will ultimately let her down? That remains to be seen, and many will have doubts.

What did you think? Did she make the right decision? Leave us a comment and let us know. In the meantime, here's THG's +/- review of the finale ...

Ali Waits

Having let Chris go, Ali waited with little suspense.

Ali's family seemed really nice. Although she seems a bit more tan and thin than any of them. This is a girl who thinks she looks fat? Seriously? Minus 7.

One got the sense early that Chris Lambton was done. Somewhere around when Ali said Roberto "makes me feel like a woman" (code for h*rny), and her dad speaking of Roberto almost romantically, Chris had no shot. Minus 5.

Ali to her family: "I just have some thoughts ... in my head." Minus 8.

Plus 10 for the genuine emotion throughout the episode, and pretty much all season from the show. By and large, it felt less contrived than most seasons!

Excerpts from an email conversation with a female friend and Team Chris member: "I love the idea of Chris' mom looking down and applauding that he didn't end up with Ali!! Hee heeeeee. Roberto is a doofus. Ali is a dorkhead and Frank, well, Frank is the kind of loser with his lovely queen Nicole. OMG, I am terrible... Oh and her boobs are shoehorned into that dress! Ali's smooshed boobs get a minus 8,000!" Minus 8,000.

Ali and Roberto

Ali and Roberto debuted as a couple last night - on and off the show.

On the "shocking twist" meter, Ali cutting Chris loose before the ceremony rates about a 2 out of 10. Mildly overhyped by the network. Minus only 9, because we they had to lure us in and mask a one-person rose ceremony somehow.

Heartbreaking as it was, props for Ali for saving Chris the humiliation, and props to Chris on the most classy reality TV exit of all time. Plus 257 for being the anti-Jake Pavelka and would make a terrific star of The Bachelor. Here's hoping.

The sweat buildup on Roberto Martinez's upper lip pre-proposal? Minus 100. Minus 146 more for the barf-tastic "Can You Feel the Love Tonight" montage.

TOTAL: -8,005. SEASON TOTAL: -7,858.

On the After the Final Rose special, the happy couple confirmed they are still together, and will be moving to San Diego while planning a spring 2011 wedding.

The sixth season of The Bachelorette just concluded in astonishing fashion as Ali Fedotowsky actually picked Roberto Martinez as the man of her dreams.

The most stunning part was not that she let Chris Lambton go before the final rose ceremony to spare him the agony, but that she picked anyone at all.

For weeks, Bachelorette spoilers suggested that Ali is single - that she either chose no one on the dramatic finale, or had already broken up with Roberto.

Not the case.

As for the "shocking ending" promised by the teasers, the "huge risk" Ali took and the "unprecedented" nature of the finale? Now we know. It wasn't about the outcome, but how she handled hard-luck Chris in the final episode of the season.

Ali Fedotowsky and Roberto Martinez hit it off from day one.

Having fallen in love with his rival, Ali cut Chris loose even before his "last chance" date, breaking the guy's heart, but earning his respect in the process.

Start the Make Chris Lambton The Bachelor petition now, fans!

This twist explains the glaring lack of footage of Ali and the guys at final rose ceremony in previews leading up to tonight, because Chris never made it. They couldn't show just Roberto Martinez, or it would have given it away.

And there you have the much-hyped breaking of rules by Ali Fedotowsky - letting Chris walk, laying it on the line with Roberto and hoping he felt the same.

He does. They are engaged and planning their life together.

The Bachelorette did an uncharacteristically good job of keeping the finale's outcome a mystery, from Ali's coy remarks about being "happy with her decision" to the lack of promos. Kudos to them and congratulations to Alberto.

We'll have complete coverage tomorrow and all week, but tell us quickly here: Are you happy with the ending? Will Ali and Roberto last?

The Bachelorette season finale is fast approaching, and there continue to be conflicting accounts as to whether star Ali Fedotowsky is engaged after it.

According to The Bachelorette spoilers we've read, she's single right now. But others, such as Us Weekly, say the finale ends with a ring on her finger.

Of course, both could be independently true.

Following the shocking 180 by Frank Neuschaefer, only Roberto Martinez and Chris Lambton are left vying for Ali's heart - with Roberto the frontrunner.

A new round of Internet reports suggest that Ali does in fact get engaged on the Bachelorette finale to Roberto, while wearing a beautiful gold gown!

Too bad this can't be independently verified.

The Bachelorette's Ali and Roberto: Are they engaged?

These same reports suggest that Roberto Martinez will propose to Ali Fedotowsky but just a few weeks after the show, Ali becomes single yet again.

Can you see it? We sort of can. Frank leaving the way he did threw her for a loop, and as infatuated as she is with Roberto, she knows it's a big risk.

We haven't listed sources here for a reason, however.

None are credible enough to warrant a mention. But the "inside" rumors about the Ali-Roberto engagement have been flying in Bachelorette forums.

Will Roberto propose, or is Chris L. ready to shock the fan community by winning her heart? If there is a proposal, do you think Ali is still engaged?

That question remains to be answered. Don't expect tonight's Men Tell All special to shed light on it, either. It's even more filler than most weeks.

Who do you think she should choose?
