you can do the rice now, but i would wait on the candy. you can get your jars/labels/whatever goes with them ready and then you’ll just have to add the candy closer to the wedding!

I would wait then. If it was something like Runts where it has a hard shell, I think you could get away with it, but gumballs and jelly beans can definitely go stale. Like Kitzy said, you can get everything else ready in the meantime.

I’d wait on the candy, personally. How long can it possibly take to fill something with candy?

Im not trying to be rude, but I would just get all the boxes and supplies ready and wait to do that candy until closer to your wedding. You have close to a full year and I don’t imagaine you being so busy every single day until then that you can’t get it done. If you have all the containers ready it should be pretty easy to fill them with candy as your date gets closer. That’s just MO.

You sound like me. I did some DIY stuff a little too far in advance, and now I’m worried about whether or not it will hold up for the wedding. My advice is to make a list of everything you want to accomplish, and then sort the list by what will last the longest. I honestly regret doing some stuff so far in advance, because I’m going to have to re-do it.

I would wait on the perishables, and find something else to keep yourself busy that’s still wedding-related. 🙂

Yeah I agree with those that said you should wait. People might not remember your favor in 5 years……but they will remember if you gave them a bag of stale mess. Just hold off.
