I don’t plan on buying until the week before the wedding. A lot of things on my list are gummy type candies, and they go stale! If you’re buying things that won’t go stale (chocolate maybe?) I don’t think it is ever to early! 🙂

I’m having a candy bar and I’ve started to buy stuff like smarties now but I’m going to wait until the weekend before.

@Nola:I am doing a candy buffett also, my wedding is in July and I have already bought the lollypops. The shelf life on them was 2012!! I think you can start now, alot of the candy has a long shelf life as long as it is stored in room temperature. I have looked into this alot, some things like gummy bears I would wait. I would rather buy a little at a time then wait and feel like your spending all this money in candy!!!

It depends.  I bought most of mine a couple months before but if there are good sales I would have considered buying early!  I think it may be tacky if you buy halloween printed candy for later!
