This Week on World Wide Wed

Halloween might be over, but that doesn't mean pumpkin paraphernalia is out. Decorating your fall reception with these white versions reads classy (not spooky), and pumpkin–spice donuts and cold–pressed cider add to the autumnal feel. —The Wedding Chicks

We're getting excited for Thanksgiving and this pear, cranberry, and gingersnap crumble probably tastes even better than it already looks. Make the recipe for Thanksgiving dinner and maybe add it to your wedding dessert menu, too. —Smitten Kitchen

This garden–party celebration in Urbino, Italy, is proof that simple can be stunning. The countryside sunset, fresh–picked flowers, and adorable expressions on the couples' faces at the start of the ceremony—now that's amore! —Sparkle and Hay

These creative Veuve–Cliquot–inspired birthday invitations are a charming idea and could easily be adapted for a cocktail party–style wedding reception (with lots of chilled bottles of bubbly, of course). —Oh So Beautiful Paper

We can't get enough of Alice in Wonderland–themed celebrations, and this whimsical shoot, featuring teacups, top hats, and over–the–top cakes, will have you thinking you fell down the rabbit hole straight into Wonderland. Tea, anyone? —Style Me Pretty
