DALLAS (KRLD) - Southwest Airlines said "Yes to the Dress" and helped a woman from Houston avoid a wedding disaster.

Grayleigh Opperman was a bridesmaid for her sister's destination wedding.  Opperman packed her make-up and her heels, but didn't realize until she landed in Costa Rica that she forgot her dress.

Her friends back home scrambled to get the dress to her, exhausting all delivery options.  So one of her friends tweeted at Southwest, asking for a miracle.  She wrote, "Can we get her dress on Flight 1734 tomorrow..." #WorthATry.

Southwest saw the tweet and said, "Let's do it."  Sharing pictures of dress' journey and within 12 hours of the initial tweet, Opperman had her dress and the wedding went off without a hitch.

Southwest tweeted, "Yep.  That was totally worth it."
