Forget-Me-Not Flower Girl Dress

In 15th-century Germany, it was supposed that the wearers of the Forget-Me-Not would not be forgotten by their lovers. Legend has it that ,in medieval times, a knight and his lady were walking along a river bank. He picked a posy of flowers but because of the weight of his armour he fell into the river. As he was drowning he threw the posy to his loved one and shouted "Forget-me-not." Because of this it was often worn by ladies as a sign of faithfulness and enduring love.
