According to Bruce the bride and groom will also received assistance from The Lord Chamberlain's Office when it comes to organising the seating plan The pair are likely to follow the tradition of having the groom's family on the right and the bride's to the left; close family will sit in the choir section to the front of the chapel Embrace embellishment like Meghan in Ralph & Russo Meghan Markle stunned in her engagement photos wearing a show-stopping gown by Ralph & Russo!
