@missmature: Considering your wedding date, I think your best bet should be an after Easter Sale.

I run a candy store, so I can help!

Any packaged candy you buy in a grocery store or from an online bulk seller is full of preservatives, so it should stay fresh for a good 6-8 months, if not longer. The trick is storing it properly. Most factories and stores are usually pretty cold. My store is a chilly 68-70 degrees, which is considered ideal for chocolate and other candies. (Not so ideal for me – I keep several jackets at work). So it’s perfectly fine for you to start buying candy maybe sometime in January, but if you keep your home a little on the warm side, you may want to wait until after Easter, like bRooklynRocks suggested.

If you do start buying several months in advance, just make sure you store the candy in airtight bags or containers, and in a cool, dark place.

@McVerde: Oh how cool. A candy store 🙂 Question: which do you think is more economical to set up: a candy buffet or a dessert buffet? I’ve been going back and forth in my mind 🙁
