We’ve been waiting for the sure-to-be magical wedding between Vampire Diaries star Candice Accola (Caroline Forbes) and The Fray’s guitarist Joe King since they announced their engagement last May, and it seems to be getting closer. Candice is checking off all of the pre-wedding festivities. Check out the photos of her celebrating her bridal shower with former co-stars Claire Holt (Rebekah Mikaelson) and Kayla Ewell (Vicki Donovan)!


“Celebrated this beautiful bride today!” Claire captioned an adorable photo of herself with her arms around a beaming Candice. Why can’t these two star on the same show anymore again?

Also in attendance at the party was former TVDer Kayla, who is serving as a bridesmaid in Candice’s upcoming nuptials. Candice posted a photo on WhoSay with her bridesmaids-to-be, laughing together in what seemed to be a backyard celebration. Yep, this wedding is going to be fun.

So when is aforementioned wedding? The date hasn’t been made public, but we’re guessing it’s right around the corner. Between this bridal shower and the trip (bachelorette party?) to Cabo with her bridesmaids, Candice seems to have almost all of the pre-wedding traditions checked off.

We may not know when the wedding is going down, but we do know where it will be. Last year, Candice revealed on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson that the ceremony would go down in NOLA: “We’re gonna get married in New Orleans, so it’s going to be really fun,” Candice told Craig. “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.” Sounds like an excellent plan to us!
