They might get stale, especially depending on the weather and were you store them. If it warms back up, which it usually does during September you might get some melted candy:(

I would hold off another week or two or be really carefull of where I put those boxes.

I would recommend not doing them until a couple weeks before your wedding.  You don’t want to risk the candy being stale.

I also worried about when to assemble my jordan almond favors, I ended up doing them the week before the wedding, because i wanted them to taste fresh

I would wait! Wait till about a week or so before the wedding, you dont want the guests to have old tasting candy.

I did mine about 4-5 weeks before the wedding with hersheys kisses.  Chocolate doesnt go bad that fast and candy corn is all just sugar.  If you can keep it in a cool place just so it doesnt melt, I’djust get them done.

 Hi again MsBrewer Laughing (not stalking you, I swear! haha)

I just had this argument/”discussion” with family members over the weekend.  I think the candy will be fine, as long as you keep it inside, out of sunlight and humidity, etc.  A lot of stores sell pre-packaged candy in cellophane bags, and I’m sure some of it sits for months at a time.

The only reason I’m waiting to do mine is that we’re still waiting on 2/3 of our RSVPs, so I don’t have anything resembling a firm headcount at this point.  I don’t want to do extra favors and buy extra stuff if I don’t need to… Although I did just get a Michaels coupon for 50% off one item, so I’ll probably go buy the favor boxes before that expires.
