As part of our favor, we are wrapping up Sixlets (an M&M type candy) in tulle.. as the edible part of the favor. They will be kept stored in a cool/cold room (the upstairs of our house is a spare bedroom, but has been converted to our wedding room.. and sucks in the winter, because it’s cold.)
I plan to wrap the candy up in January.. do you think from Jan-April the candys will still good, being wrapped in tulle “exposed” to the air.

I would wait until April, just to be safe. You don’t want it going stale!

Does it get humid? I would worry about the humidity making it gross, but if it doesn’t I wouldn’t be worried. Have you considered putting the candy in some kind of container to keep the humidity/bugs/dust out?

@MissHobbit: It will not be humid.. the room stays very cool in the winter.. cool enough where we can’t sleep in it. Perhaps I could put them in the tulle.. then seal them in a contain until it gets a little closer..
The plan is to wrap them in the tulle, then place them in a wine glass we’re giving each guest. I like the idea of putting them in a air tight container, then I can wait a little longer to put them in the actual glasses.

I think you will be okay, but I would put all the pouches into airtight containers to keep out bugs/dust/humidity/etc.

no. wait about 2 weeks before the wedding, get them and then do the favors. they will dry out and get dusty.
if the candies are on sale at an earlier date, then do not open them, but keep in a dry, cool, dark place like the top corner of a cabinent not near the stove or fridge. wait till about a week before the wedding then fix the candies and restore them in a plastic air-proof container (like a large cake box).

I think that even if you put them in an airtight container, they’ll get yucky. Leave them in their original packaging until it’s closer to your wedding.

I would leave them in their original packaging as long as possible.

I would leave them as long as possible they do get stale

No, think the candy would get stale after more than a couple weeks. You can have everything ready to go beforehand but you really should wait until closer to the wedding.

I definitely would not open them until its very close to the wedding day. Candy gets stale quickly, and you don’t want to give your guests stale favors.
