Looking to up the cuteness factor of your ceremony? Nothing beats dressed-up flower girls and ring bearers walking down the aisle before you. Here are a few spots around the city to find formal duds for the little ones in your wedding party.

Gigi's Closette
The Glenview boutique has been a staple among North Shore shoppers for over 40 years, so much so that it's not unheard of for a woman to turn to Gigi's to buy her prom dress, wedding dress, and her MOTB dress. The boutique essentially serves as wedding-attire headquarters and showcases plenty of flower girl options from designers like Dessy and Joan Calabrese. Read real brides' reviews here!

Formally Modern Tuxedo
Little ones tend to outgrow clothes before they're able to put them on a second time. That's why there's reason to believe your ring bearer's parents will prefer to rent a suit rather than splurge on one he'll never fit in after your wedding day. Formally Modern Tuxedo stocks rentals to fit toddlers as young as three years old. If your ring bearer is even younger, the shop also sells suits for nine-month-old boys.

BHLDN
Little girl dresses at the Gold Coast boutique shine just as much as the bridal gowns and glittery accessories. You'll find everything from long-sleeved lace styles suited for elegant weddings to more casual maxi dresses for the pint-sized set to wear to outdoor nuptials. Beyond that, BHLDN's stocked with the extras to prepare them for their important job, including velvet pillows for the ring bearer and baskets for the flower girl to stash her petals.

J.Crew
With silk taffeta ruffles and pleated chiffon dresses for her and three-piece seersucker suits and jacket-and-shorts combos for him, J.Crew has a range of styles that'll cue a chorus of "awww"s from your guests. Bonus: Mom and dad probably have their child's J.Crew sizes memorized, which makes shopping a breeze.

Bella Bianca Bridal Couture
The bridal boutique, which has locations in the Gold Coast and in west suburban Oak Brook, carries three flower girl dress designers. Dessy Girls dresses match Dessy Collection bridesmaid dresses to keep the look cohesive, US Angels has voluminous chiffon skirts to make your flower girl feel like a princess, and Watters Girls has dresses in a range of colors so you're sure to find one that matches your maids.

Bebe Elegante
The Lakeview boutique is a trusted destination for special occasion outfits for children, whether they're being dressed for a baptism, first communion, or a wedding. Count on the shop to have a selection of options that fit your wedding theme, such as a tulle dress for a romantic wedding and a classic suit for a contemporary affair.
