I made mine about 8 months before the wedding from silks.  I just threw them in a box in the closet, LOL.  They stored just fine!  Except when making them, my dog thought they were toys, so I had to hot glue some stems back in that he ripped out 🙂

Ok, at the risk of sounding like a wedding moron:

I don’t get pomanders. I want to, but I don’t. Are they for decoration? Do you carry them instead of a bouquet? I think they are the cutest damn things, but I just don’t get it.

Educate!

@katiedee: I think they are cutest when they are used for aisle decoration for the ceremony! I found this picture on the bee:

I am sure you can start them now and then store in a box in a closet. They look time consuming. Better early than late, I’d say!

I made some right when I got engaged which would be more than a year before the wedding. I’m not going to use them and ended up giving them to a friend for her baby shower. You need to think about storage. My problem was I have a cat who hunted those things down. I’m talking full on opening doors and getting into boxes. It made it very difficult to store. Other than that I don’t see any problems starting early.

I used mine as centerpieces.  They sat on a black vase with crystals and twigs coming out of them.

This was the first DIY project that I tackled.  I did mine in October and I’m not getting married until September.  I just put them in a big box and will fluff them before I need them.  How many are you making?
