    I have a question: Can you only have one pin per number? For instance, are you only allowed one “4. Something Blue” pin, or can you have several? Also, I assume you don’t have to actually be getting married to enter the contest…hope not 😉

    • ModCloth 01/23/2012 at 11:55 am #

      Hi Christine! Please just pin one per number. And no, you do not have to be currently engaged to enter. 🙂

  2. Cate 01/23/2012 at 11:39 am #

    Do the Modcloth items have to be currently on the site? Or will any items do? Also can we combine items, like something that is handmade and blue?

    • ModCloth 01/23/2012 at 11:55 am #

      Hi Cate! You can combine two categories. Just make sure to mark it with both numbers in the description.

  3. ModCloth 01/23/2012 at 11:53 am #

    Just pin one per number. And no, you do not have to be currently engaged to enter. AL

  4. Melissa 01/23/2012 at 12:23 pm #

    I have a silly question. Can we use any items we see that we like on the web, or only items on the ModCloth site? Thanks for your help and I can’t wait to start! You guys have the best contests.

    • ModCloth 01/23/2012 at 12:32 pm #

      Hi Melissa! Only numbers 12-15 have to be ModCloth products. 🙂

  5. Kryssi 01/23/2012 at 12:40 pm #

    I’m done!!! That was fun!

  6. Lisa 01/23/2012 at 12:44 pm #

    I absolutely love this idea! Already working away on it. 😀

  7. Evelina 01/23/2012 at 2:32 pm #

    Whoo, that was fun! I feel like I planned a wedding in 3 hours, haha. 🙂

  8. anne the SpyGirl 01/23/2012 at 2:36 pm #

    How fun! I’m going to do my fantasy wedding to the guy who just won’t “go there”

  9. Kelly 01/23/2012 at 2:57 pm #

    I have started making my board and while the hashtags for wedding work the hashtags for modcloth do not

  10. Sunita 01/23/2012 at 4:53 pm #

    I’m new to Pinterest. How do you know whether or not the hashtags work?

    • ModCloth 01/24/2012 at 10:44 am #

      As long as your entries have #modcloth and #wedding in the description they’ll work. 🙂

  11. Brittany (Dasadorah) 01/23/2012 at 4:57 pm #

    This was awesome! I’m actually getting married in May and I’m using some of the pieces from my board for the wedding.

  12. Nikki Roberti 01/23/2012 at 5:51 pm #

    If people repin my board items….they won’t get credit for my ideas…right?

    • ModCloth 01/24/2012 at 10:45 am #

      Some people may have some of the same items on their boards, but we’re looking at all 20 pins to decide a winner. If they have all the same items then we’ll judge based on who posted their entry first.

      • Pamada 01/24/2012 at 10:47 am #

        But.. but… /whimper. I finished mine early yesterday (and 20million people repinned everything) and I can’t actually comment on the pinboard. I don’t know what the issue is, but it seems like others are having the same?

        Posting it here for record purposes i guess:

  13. Tammy 01/23/2012 at 6:02 pm #

    Just finished my board!

  14. kissmekitten 01/23/2012 at 6:14 pm #

    I can’t get my comment to post on Modcloths Pinterest page to enter my board for the contest. Anyone else????

  15. theblindbride 01/23/2012 at 6:54 pm #

    I don’t know how to post my link to the original post… do you mean on Twitter? Sorry I’m confused.

  16. amanda e. 01/23/2012 at 7:39 pm #

    I’m actually wondering the same thing as Nikki….I’m finished with my board (I’m trying to leave a comment on ‘To Have and To Hold on Pinterest but it won’t let me) & I am a little worried about people using the items I have on my board. I worked really hard, so how does the privacy of our boards work with this contest?

    • ModCloth 01/24/2012 at 10:47 am #

      Some people may have the same items but we’re judging on all 20 pins. If someone has the same board as you then we’ll judge based on who posted their entry first.

  17. Nikki Roberti 01/23/2012 at 8:04 pm #

    Here’s my board!

  18. April Privett 01/23/2012 at 8:12 pm #

    Love love love this idea! Already seeing some fantastic boards 🙂 Here’s mine:

  19. Pamada 01/23/2012 at 9:52 pm #

    i’m having trouble leaving a comment on the pinterest board 🙁 i don’t know why.. i keep getting an error, and i’ve tried on a bunch of different computers/browsers

    is there anything i can do?

    • ModCloth 01/24/2012 at 10:48 am #

      It looks like a couple people are getting errors, but try again and let us know if it’s still not working for you.

  20. Candi Anderson 01/24/2012 at 12:03 am #

    Hi- that was so much fun!! Thank you for posting such an amazing contest for all of us pin-addicts 🙂

  21. kittenhood 01/24/2012 at 4:31 am #

    here is mine, had quite a good time making it!

  22. nekorayne 01/24/2012 at 6:28 am #

    I have finished mine but it won’t let me post it to your comments section of the pin. I have tried last night and again today. Any tips?

  23. Chelsea 01/24/2012 at 7:13 am #

    Do we re-name the pin or use the name you’ve already given for each number?

    • ModCloth 01/24/2012 at 10:50 am #

      You can put an additional description, but please include the name and number so we know which entry it is. 🙂

  24. Smith & Ratliff 01/24/2012 at 8:05 am #

    Some of these boards look great!

  25. Jené 01/24/2012 at 8:59 am #

    Hello! This is sooooo fun! I’m going a little crazy pinning. I know that you just said only one pin per #, but for example, #9 says Floral Arrangement(s), can we have more than one for this? Also for the Modcloth accessories? And for #17 sweets or treats we have to only pick one? Sorry, I’m so into this I’m like pretending to plan a real wedding! lol

    • ModCloth 01/24/2012 at 10:52 am #

      Please just include 1 pin per category. 🙂

  26. Ashley G 01/24/2012 at 9:44 am #

    This was so fun to do definitely my favorite ModCloth contest so far, and I think its awesome that the winners will be announced on my 22nd birthday.

  27. Absolutely white 01/24/2012 at 10:03 am #

    This was so great to do and it was really hard to choose the photos for my “theme” as Pinterest is full of beautiful photos. Here is my board:

  28. mollybuckley 01/24/2012 at 10:09 am #

    So excited! I had so much fun putting together my board.

  29. nikki 01/24/2012 at 10:17 am #

    Was pretty fun!

  30. Julie S. 01/24/2012 at 10:29 am #

    I had a ton of fun doing this, but it wont let me paste/send my comment! Frustrating 🙁
    I’ll keep trying.. but for now–
    My board:

  31. Anna 01/24/2012 at 10:49 am #

    Is this contest worldwide?

  32. Kelly 01/24/2012 at 10:52 am #

    Here is mine!

  33. Harper 01/24/2012 at 11:15 am #

    I keep getting an error message when I try to comment on the Pinterest board, so I’ll post mine here. Thanks for the contest, it was a lot of fun!

  34. Erin 01/24/2012 at 11:23 am #

    That was fun.

  35. amanda e. 01/24/2012 at 12:02 pm #

    Just got mine to post….if you are trying to write a comment before living your board link that may be why it won’t let you post! When I put my board link before my comment it finally let me post mine! Had a lot of fun with this 🙂

    • amanda e. 01/24/2012 at 12:02 pm #


  36. Pamela Susan Brinston 01/24/2012 at 12:06 pm #

    Having issues posting as well 🙁

    • ModCloth 01/24/2012 at 12:48 pm #

      Pamela, sometimes Pinterest can be buggy. If it doesn’t work for you now, try again next time you login to your account!

  37. Stephanie 01/24/2012 at 1:36 pm #

    “To Have and To Hold” Board

  38. sunkissis 01/24/2012 at 2:22 pm #

    Super fun! Makes me want to renew our vows for our 10 year anniversary this August!!

  39. Heather Westermann 01/24/2012 at 4:03 pm #

    That was so fun! I used some personal details from my wedding. Thanks for an awesome contest! Here it is:

  40. Brianna Moore 01/24/2012 at 4:12 pm #

    I REALLY enjoyed participating in this contest! Pinterest, wedding planning and Modcloth are some of my favorite things! 🙂

  41. Meagan 01/24/2012 at 4:14 pm #

    Here is mine!! 🙂

  42. Renee 01/24/2012 at 5:03 pm #

    No one answered the first part of Cate’s question… do the Modcloth items have to be ones currently on the site or currently offered?

    • ModCloth 01/24/2012 at 5:33 pm #

      Any ModCloth item is fine. 🙂

  43. Rebecca 01/24/2012 at 5:16 pm #

    Here is my board, really hope you all enjoy it!

  44. Pamela Susan Brinston 01/24/2012 at 5:38 pm #

    I still cant post, can we post here?

  45. cherrybevents 01/24/2012 at 5:43 pm #

    I keep getting an error as well and have been retrying all day.
    Hope you enjoy the ModCloth Vintage Chic board!

  46. Jete 01/24/2012 at 5:57 pm #

    I love that everything I pinned was from my wedding inspiration board already

  47. ksnash14 01/24/2012 at 8:00 pm #

    I see you want only one pin per category, but number 13 asks for “accessories”. Can we pin more than one item for this one? Or should I save the pictures and create one picture of all of my matching accessories?

    • ModCloth 01/25/2012 at 10:26 am #

      Please just post one pin per category. 🙂

  48. Megan H. 01/24/2012 at 8:53 pm #

    I keep getting repeated error messages when I try to post on the original contest pin.

    This is my board:

    I’ll keep trying to repost it on the pin but I’ve had no luck all day today.

  49. Lisa 01/24/2012 at 8:53 pm #

    It does not seem to work for me either when leaving a comment. I tried all day yesterday and today, so I’ll just leave it here.

  50. Bobbi 01/24/2012 at 9:08 pm #

    Here is mine: This was fun, and I’m already married, but love fashion/style challenges!

  51. Emily W. 01/24/2012 at 10:04 pm #

    I also was having trouble entering the contest on pinterest, is there anything we should do? Just in case, here is my entry. I had a lot of fun playing pretend and hope my wedding will be just as amazing one day!

  52. Briana Rossi 01/24/2012 at 10:13 pm #

    This was super fun! I can’t wait to buy a cute dress with my new gift card I will surely win with my great board.

  53. Darcy Potter 01/24/2012 at 11:14 pm #

    I am trying to leave my board on your pintrest page and it will not let me post in the “comments” section of To Have and To Hold. Here is my link My take on a gorgeous French inspired tea party

    Thank you and Cheers!
    Darcy Potter

  54. Angie 01/25/2012 at 8:46 am #

    I’m another of those having trouble posting comments on Pinterest (I’ve tried on my own boards and other people’s, to no avail, and haven’t heard anything back about the bug report I made), which has been an exercise in frustration for the past day. I know this isn’t what the rules stipulated, but I’m putting the link here (and will keep trying on Pinterest), just to cover my bases.

    Mostly from my own wedding boards, it was fun to collate!

    • ModCloth 01/25/2012 at 10:28 am #

      We will make sure everyone’s boards get entered. Sorry you’re having trouble commenting on Pinterest!

  55. Jeanette 01/25/2012 at 9:13 am #

    I’m all done! Thanks for helping me get started on putting the thoughts in my head down in one visual place. I hope you enjoy my FantaSea wedding vision.

    • Jeanette 01/25/2012 at 9:21 am #

      Been trying to add a comment to the “To Have and To Hold” board but it’s not working.

  56. Veronica 01/25/2012 at 9:19 am #

    This was so much fun, like a lot of other commenters I was having issues getting my link to post on Pinterest so here it is! “Rosé Colored Glasses” wedding board inspired by rose gold and champagne, two of my eternal loves.

  57. jayneisagirlsname 01/25/2012 at 10:01 am #

    I can’t comment on the actual pin board, either. So, I am posting my board here.

  58. Kirby Morris 01/25/2012 at 12:19 pm #

    Can’t comment on pinterest post right now, will try again later, but just in case here’s my board!!

    I’m ready to plan my wedding now!! So much fun!!

  59. Sarah 01/25/2012 at 12:54 pm #

    To have and to Hold 🙂

  60. Kate 01/25/2012 at 2:28 pm #

    I can’t post to the actual pin board either. Here’s a link to my board:

  61. Anna 01/25/2012 at 3:26 pm #

    It was so fun creating this wedding board! But I’m also getting error messages from Pinterest…I’ve been trying to comment since yesterday.
    I’ll leave my link here.

  62. Brooke 01/25/2012 at 5:08 pm #

    Just in case I can’t get this to work on pinterest. I hope you’ll love my garden wedding board as much as I do!

  63. Anca 01/25/2012 at 5:32 pm #

    It was great fun + inspirational to put the wedding board together! 🙂

  64. DeLacy 01/25/2012 at 7:12 pm #

    Here is my board! I hope I did it right. the rules were a little vague but maybe that’s okay because it leaves more creative freedom?

    • DeLacy 01/25/2012 at 7:25 pm #

      By the way, I had to post my board here because I kept getting an error message when I tried to put in the contest pin comments. :/ Hope that’s okay.

  65. Brittany 01/25/2012 at 7:20 pm #

    Winners that means you will pick more then one! I hope I win! Ive been wanting to get shoes or a jacket. Love this contest! I hope to see more like this one. Also contest idea! What modcloth items would you buy if you won$200?

  66. Sarah 01/25/2012 at 7:54 pm #

    Just realised I had a couple extra options – only 20 now 🙂

  67. Christine Pilcher 01/25/2012 at 8:19 pm #

    I’m getting the error message as well!

    This has been a great project! It has provided me with wonderful ideas and inspiration for my own vintage/nautical wedding happening in April 🙂

  68. Jennifer Froman 01/25/2012 at 8:51 pm #

    It won’t let me post on the pin board 🙁 so here is my link as well! 🙂

  71. Donna 01/25/2012 at 9:40 pm #

    So sorry for also posting here, but I’ve been trying to comment on Pinterest for the past 2
    days without any luck! I’ll continue trying to post there, but thanks for the opportunity.

  72. Brittany 01/26/2012 at 6:46 am #

    it wont let me comment on the post on pinterest–

    Just finished my entry:

  74. Danielle 01/26/2012 at 3:41 pm #

    I’m not sure if my question has already been asked, but I want three different bridesmaid dresses, so I pinned 3 different ModCloth dresses. Is that acceptable, or should I just choose one? Thank you!!

  75. Nora 01/26/2012 at 7:03 pm #

    I tired to leave a comment on the Pinterest post, but no luck!

  76. Anna Reuter 01/26/2012 at 10:22 pm #

    Loved this contest…so many fun things and cute things to link up…
    here is my board

    You make being a girl EXTRA fun! <3

  77. chelsey 01/26/2012 at 10:44 pm #

    In addition to posting my link on the To Have And To Hold page, do I post the link here as well?

    • ModCloth 01/27/2012 at 10:24 am #

      You don’t need to post the link in both places. Some people are having trouble posting to the original pin so they are leaving their links here.

  78. chocoliv 01/26/2012 at 10:54 pm #

    Ahhh this was so much fun! I want to get married now~ lol

  79. Patricia Quan 01/26/2012 at 11:31 pm #

    Hi, I’m having difficulty posting as well. I tried several times last night and then again this morning. It appears to post at first and then is nowhere to be found. Here is my link, hoping I can enter this way since I’m not able to post. Thank you!

  84. Lori 01/27/2012 at 6:08 am #

    So that’s where our weddings are being pinned to! We’re happy to see you’re finding all 20 items from our blog. Thanks so much for the love!


  94. Laura Adams 01/27/2012 at 12:57 pm #

    Yesterday I left a comment on the original contest announcement pin with a link to my finished board in your “To Have and To Hold” board but it doesn’t seem to be there so here it is, my completed contest submission can be found at the following link:

    Thanks for hosting this contest.

  100. Lynn T. 01/27/2012 at 4:03 pm #

    I just got my pinterest invite today. but by the time in finished i couldnt find where to make a comment on the have and to hold board. where is it?

  101. Bonnie 01/27/2012 at 6:38 pm #

    When are the winners announced? I’m just wondering 🙂

    • ModCloth 02/01/2012 at 4:26 pm #

      On 2/10 🙂

  102. Renie 01/27/2012 at 8:37 pm #

    I hope that link works! Thank you and I hope you like it. :)_

  103. Ashly 01/28/2012 at 9:29 am #

    This was really fun.

  104. KorrieMiller 01/28/2012 at 9:40 am #

    I’m really dissapointed. I requested to create a pinterest on the 23 when I first saw this post and I just now got the invite. A day after the contest. That’s not cool.

    • Dee 01/28/2012 at 9:53 am #

      ModCloth doesn’t have control over when Pinterest invites you.

    • KorrieMiller 01/29/2012 at 6:48 pm #

      I know Dee. I don’t blame them I was just really pumped about this. I had everything organized and was so excited to start.

    >.< I commented with my board two, three days ago but it is not on there anymore…
    I saw others with similar problems, so I'm posting it here as well.

    Here is my board – I didn’t realise it was only one pin per number – I have only a couple extra on a few numbers – do I have to delete them???

    I commented on the “To Have and To Hold” Pinterest board on the last day of the contest, and now I don’t see my comment. 🙁 I worked so hard, I hope it went through!

    ModCloth, you’ve done it again. You’ve kept me up half the night, completely twitterpated over this assignment. This board was the most fun I’ve had on a project in a long time. I’m thinking I went into the wrong profession… ? I’ve already posted my board to the comments section of your Pinterest board, but here it is again. Happy Thursday to you fine, fashionable folks.

    Who won??

    Rules say winner is supposed to be announced today!

  113. Laurel 02/11/2012 at 12:58 pm #

    Was the winner ever announced?

  114. Berns 02/13/2012 at 10:07 pm #

    I didn’t see the comment that there should only be one of each pin until after the contest ended. It wasn’t stated explicitly in the contest instructions, either. Did I get disqualified (I pinned several bridesmaid dress options)? I loved this contest but please be really clear next time (and I do hope there’s a next time!).

    And, yes! We’re all wondering who won!
