We love stories of Vampire Diaries friendships that stay strong off the set — and the bestie-ship between Candice Accola (Caroline Forbes) and former co-star Kayla Ewell (Vicki Donovan) certainly qualifies. Candice took her bridesmaids on a pre-wedding bridal vacation to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico — including Kayla! Check out the adorable photos!

“Best bridesmaids ever!!! So grateful... Here we go! #woogirls #cabosancandy,” Candice captioned the WhoSay photo of herself and her bridesmaids looking lovely with their arms around one another. In the photo, Candice is wearing an awesomely massive flower crown with the word “Bride” on top of it, while her friends (including Kayla) all don “Bridesmaid” t-shirts. Fun!

Later in the weekend, Candice tweeted this photo of the ladies on their vacation. In it, Candice is still wearing her flower crown, but has on an off-the-shoulder white lace dress and a vibrant smile on her face. She’s surrounded by her lovely friends. We should have known the actress behind the role of Caroline Forbes would be able to plan the perfect weekend away!

Though Candice has said she and fiance Joe King (guitarist for The Fray) will tie the knot in 2014, she hasn’t revealed the exact date — though this bridal weekend makes us wonder if the nuptials won’t be going down soon. We do know that the couple will marry in New Orleans. Last year, Candice told Craig Ferguson: “We both just really love the city. And [Joe]’s always on the road and I’m always traveling, so we figured why not make it a destination for everyone.” We can’t wait to see that sure-to-be amazing photos of this lovely couple tying the knot!
