Last month they revealed what their wedding will be like – fun, casual and small – and now Tracey Edmonds is hinting at when and where her marriage to Eddie Murphy will take place.

“We’re coming close,” Edmonds, 40, told PEOPLE Tuesday at Got Chocolate Milk?, a Halloween celebration in West Hollywood for celebrity moms and kids. “And I’ll say it’ll be before the end of the year … and someplace far away and fun.”

She reiterated that the guest list will be small, adding that she expects the ceremony to be “romantic.”

“It’s just going to be very close friends and family but very romantic – and we’ll have a good time!” she told PEOPLE.

She is also looking beyond the wedding to life with a blended family, admitting that bringing their two families together is “going to be a big step.”

Edmonds has two children and Murphy, 46, has five children with ex-wife Nicole Murphy and one with Spice Girl Melanie Brown.

“There will be some adjusting but I think it’s going to be a lot of fun,” Edmonds said. “Eddie’s got some fantastic, beautiful fun kids and I’ve got two wonderful boys, so it’ll be nice to get everybody together.”
