Michele and Groff first became friends while starring on Broadway’s Spring Awakening as a couple, Wendla and Melchior, from 2006 to 2008. With more than a decade of friendship, the two have reminded fans of their unwavering friendship across social media and at various appearances.

Other potential wedding party contenders include Darren Criss, Michele’s Glee co-star and close pal, as well as E! News style expert Brad Goreski, who recently married Gary Janetti on a cruise ship.

Janetti, who runs a prolific parody account in the tone of Prince George on Instagram, jokingly commented on Michele’s post and asked whether Goreski would serve as the flower girl.

“@GaryJanetti duh and you’re ring-bearer,” Michele wrote back. “Didn’t @BradGoreski tell you???!!!”

Michele announced her engagement to retail exec Zandy Reich on April 28. Reich proposed to the multi-hyphenate with a four-carat, radiant-cut diamond that he personally designed with a celebrity jeweler. “I was so surprised, I kept saying, ‘Stop joking around, stop joking around!’” Michele recalled of the proposal on Watch What Happens Live. “I keep thinking it’s borrowed and I have to give it back at some point.”
