So my wedding is in August and I will be ordering candy from the following websites:
Does anyone have advice on when to order? Also, I am in Canada so shipping will take a bit longer.
I don’t want to order too early so that stuff tastes stale, but I definately don’t want to wait too long and be stressed about stuff arriving on time.
I’m thinking the end of May?
ETA: Just found this thread: http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/candy-buffet-30
May might be early based on these responses… But if anyone has experience with these websites, let me know about your experience!

Candy is pure sugar so it lasts forever. It doesn’t start to taste stale until you’ve had it for a year or more. You can order it anytime. Since shipping takes awhile for you, it’s fine to order it now and store it in a cool dry place (closet or garage).

I found this last week when I was looking up when to get candy.

I would say order non chocolate candy within a year of your wedding and chocolate within 6 months. Chocolate goes bad faster. (it turns that weird white color and gets chalky-yuck!)
