The TSA saved the day after a wedding dress was left behind at a security checkpoint at Newark Airport.

The Transportation Security Administration said Monday that the bride's mother forgot to take the luggage holding her daughter's gown, as well as her own dress for the wedding, after she cleared security and boarded a flight to Columbus, Ohio — where the ceremony was scheduled to take place the next day.

The bride's brother, Christopher Cepeda, filled out a lost and found form online and prayed that they would be able to get the dress in time for the big day.

Cepeda thought all hope was lost when he saw the response time was about five days, but just six minutes later he got the good news — the dress was found.
