Oopsies! Bachelorette Ali Fedotowsky revealed in a new interview that she dealt with a slight mishap on her wedding day—but it was for the best reason.

The former reality star—who married Kevin Manno at the Terranea Resort in Rancho Palos Verdes, California, on March 3—opened up to Extra on Tuesday, March 14, about the highlights from her beachfront ceremony. “I forgot to wear my veil!” she recalled. “Someone took it out of the garment bag… I never thought to go back and take the veil, I was obviously having too much fun.”

One thing Fedotowsky will never forget from her wedding was the live music. “We had this incredible band… They just blew us away!” she said. Fedotowsky previously told The Knot that she wanted her day to be eventful. “I want to be able to let loose and completely enjoy myself at my wedding,” she said in an exclusive interview in 2016. “I didn’t know how pregnancy would affect me so I didn’t want to risk feeling crappy on my wedding day. It’s a good thing we didn’t get married then because I was so sick at the beginning of my pregnancy. It would have been a rough night for me.”

Indeed, it worked out. “The whole wedding day was so perfect and lovely,” she told Extra on Tuesday.

For her seaside wedding, the mom of one opted for a gown by Alvina Valenta. She subsequently swapped into a strapless, Spanish lace gown designed by Valerie and Stephanie Chin of Val Stefani for the reception.

“Ali was specific that she wanted [her dress] to reflect her own personal style, and [she wanted to] have fun in it,” the sister duo told The Knot in an exclusive interview. “She wanted something classic and elegant that really reflected her sense of style.”

The couple’s baby daughter Molly was the flower girl. “It’s so fun calling [Kevin] my husband,” she concluded.
