After eight years and six children, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are ready for marriage.

Planning their wedding, of course, has become a family affair. The Mr. & Mrs. Smith co-stars got engaged in 2012 and are receiving plenty of input from their six kids: Maddox Jolie-Pitt, 12, Pax Jolie-Pitt, 10, Zahara Jolie-Pitt, 9, Shiloh Jolie-Pitt, 7, and twins Knox Jolie-Pitt and Vivienne Jolie-Pitt, 5.

"We are discussing it with the children and how they imagine it might be," the bride-to-be, 38, says in the latest issue of People. "Which is verging on hysterical, how kids envision a wedding...They will, in a way, be the wedding planners," she adds. "It's going to be Disney or paintball—one or the other!"

The ceremony may be a ways off, however. "We will get married, and we're not really in a rush," Jolie explains. "We're just waiting for it to be the right time with the kids, with work, when it feels right."

One thing is certain, Jolie says: "It will be fun. That's the important thing."

The Maleficent star also opens up about how her romance with Pitt, 50, has evolved as their children grow older. "We've been through so much. We've gotten a lot closer, which I think naturally happens with raising a family together. You have history. You have so many memories. All your memories are based on time together, so you don't have separate experiences. You have this person you live with who really knows you, and you know them so well," she says. "You're not lovers or boyfriend and girlfriend as much as you are a family."

In Elle's June issue, Jolie went into further detail about her relationship with the World War Z star. "You get together and you're two individuals and you feel inspired by each other, you challenge each other, you complement each other, drive each other beautifully crazy," she said. "After all these years, we have history—and when you have history with somebody, you're friends in such a very real, deep way that there's such a comfort, and an ease, and a deep love that comes from having been through quite a lot together."
