If you want a uniform look you really have to have the same icing on all layers. You could do an underlayer of cream cheese icing for the pumpkin layer if you want.

It really doesn’t matter which cake is which layer. The color of the cake doesn’t show when it is iced. Make the biggest layer the one that you think most people will like.

Are you saving your top layer for your 1 year anniversary? If so, whatever you want to eat in a year should be the top layers. It really doesn’t matter what the layers are, because it’s your cake 🙂 Also, make the bottom layer what you want to eat, because you’ll eat it when you cut the cake with your new hubby. I would go with the buttercream on each layer. It tastes good with any flavor, believe me… we’re have key lime, red velvet, and spice for our cake. But we tried about 20 different flavors, all with buttercream 🙂

If you really want cream cheese or chocolate icing with the pumpkin cake, you could use one of those to fill between the layers (inside) and then use buttercream to do the entire exterior of the cake for uniformity.

I don’t have much to contribute to the layer order debate because I love cake in all of its many and varied forms — yay, cake!

I think the white chocolate should be the smallest layer since it’s not a very popular flavor.  I love banana cake (carrot, pumpkin, anything like this) and I use either buttercream or cream cheese frosting.  My vote is pumpkin with the buttercream.
