Did you any DIY (do it yourself) or special projects/things at the wedding?

The bride and groom and maid of honour made the wedding programs, designed the welcome table, the table chart, and thumb stamp tree. Our friends made us a baby slide show and funny video on their thoughts about the couple. We had a time slot dedicated for evening prayer (maghreb) together. As a wedding favor the bride and groom collaborated with a charity and made donations on the guests behalf.
