I arranged the Chinese translation so that it had the same clause order as the original English sentence and it was marked wrong. What grammatical rule did I violate?

My incorrect answer: 其他人都来了,除了她。

The accepted answer: 除了她,其他人都来了。

It is not idiomatic and probably only used colloquially as an afterthought.
