It has been nearly a month since fiancé Joe King popped the question to bride-to-be Candice Accola, and she's still enjoying newly-engaged bliss!

"I can't even think about [the wedding] yet," the Vampire Diaries star told People at Midori's Happy Hour Style Event Thursday evening at The London. "We're just enjoying the engagement with our friends and family right now." 

Candice met fiancé Joseph King (guitarist for the band The Fray) two years ago at a Superbowl event — but the actress revealed that she was too shy initially to make a move. "I was too chicken to give him my number, so Nina did," she said.

As for the engagement bling her future husband presented her, the actress says Joseph's taste was spot on. "I never wear jewelry very often," she admitted. "He knows I wear a lot of vintage and he definitely consulted with some of my girls." 

You'll be shocked to find out that Candice hasn't even begun planning for the big day! But breath a sigh of relief, because the actress promises that she won't turn into a bridezilla. "I stress out over just planning a dinner party, so it's been kind of a running joke with my friends," Candice said. "But I think I always hoped more for the kind of man I would be with rather than the kind of wedding I would have. I'm just so excited and grateful."
