Writing describe a wedding ceremony in Morocco?

This is what my students wrote about some of our celebrations:

We are writing this article so as to describe some of our ceremonies.

There are many kinds of ceremonies:

1)Engagement: This ceremony is the first step before celebrating the wedding. The way this ceremony is carried out depends on traditions & customs of the town, but in general, the groom's family visits the bride's family and they take gifts and flowers with them.

When the guests arrive, the hosts meet them with flowers, milk and dates and they sit with each other and talk with the bride's parents so as to agree about the date of the wedding ceremony.

2)Marriage:We celebrate it in a big place, where there are many guests(from the groom's family, the bride's family& their neighbours) to whom a music band sings traditional as well as modern songs. People spend the night dancing and having fun.

Concerning the bride's clothes, she wears traditional ones like "Takchita, Caftan", and at the end of the ceremony she wears a white wedding dress like the one we see in most films. The groom generally wears two types of clothes a traditional "Jellaba" and a modern suit.

As for meals, guests eat pastilla, meat with dried prunes, chicken, dessert. They also have tea with several varieties of cookies…

3)Baptism: Seven days after the baby's birth; the family celebrates it by inviting relatives, cousins and neighbors and preparing food for them just like in a wedding. This is what my students wrote about some of our celebrations:

Deserts

Who are the north African desert dwellers?

The North Africa desert dwellers were called the Berbers.

The Berbers were a group of independent desert and mountain dwellers who converted to Islam. Even today, some states in Northern Africa are still influenced by Islam today.

2 Berber groups that held distinction were the Almoravids and the Almohads. The Almoravids led by a Muslim scholar named Ibn Yasin tried to conquer and spread Islam through their region. After Ibn Yasin' death, the Almoravids took over Morocco and founded their capital Marrakech. They then conquered the African empire of Ghana and parts of southern Spain. They were known as Moors in Spain.

The Almohads took over the Almoravids in the 1100's and followed the teachings of Ibn Tumart. They hated the Almoravids for not following Islamic rule. Led by another Muslim man named Abd al-Mumin overthrew the Almoravids and went to control Morocco and expanded their area to Tunis and Tripoli in the Mediterranean to Marrakech which they kept control of. Under the Almohads, the Maghrib region in North Africa was united for the first time for 100 years. In the end, The empire was broken up and separated into individual independent states under different Muslim rules.
