Traditionally, the bride stands on the left side of the altar for the wedding ceremony so that the groom can use his right hand in case he needs to fight for his bride, should someone try to steal her away last minute on the wedding day! Thankfully the kidnapping part of this tradition died long long ago, but brides still keep up the tradition of standing on the left side.
