The wedding toast is going to be positively Glee-ful. Actress Lea Michele knows exactly who she wants to stand by her side on her wedding day, beginning with her maid (or man) of honor: Jonathan Groff.
Michele took to Instagram on Wednesday, May 9, to reveal her pick for the role, alongside a sweet hugging snapshot with her longtime best friend. “Maid of honor,” she captioned the photo with the Frozen star.
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.”
