The actress' costar and BFF Nina Dobrev congratulated the bride-to-be via Twitter, writing, "Dying right now! So excited/thrilled/happy/hyperventilating over your engagement! Match made in heaven!"

Dobrev, who recently split with costar Ian Somerhalder, wasted no time grilling Accola for wedding details. "What colors are we thinking for the bridesmaids dresses?" she asked. "Because yellow isn't a good color on me."
