Cordele - The Today Show is "Throwing a Wedding" for a lucky Michigan couple, and one of the gowns the bride might wear is designed by a Cordele woman.

Cordele native, Ann Barge, designed one of the beautiful wedding dresses shown on the Today Show. It's one of four gowns that viewers get to vote on for the lucky bride.

Barge has been in the retail business for years, but only began designing her own line of wedding dresses five years ago. Her sister-in-law, Susan Barge, says Ann has always wanted to create her own wedding gowns. She explains, "After her parents passed away and we were cleaning out the house and all and we found so many sketches even from childhood days, second grade, third grade and she had sketches of bride gowns and bridesmaids, this has really been a dream of hers forever."

Ann Barge lives in Atlanta now and has a shop at the Four Seasons Hotel. She also has a showroom in New York.

Her sister-in-law says when Ann got the phone call from the Today Show that her dress had been selected, she was thrilled. Ann Barge's dresses are featured in all the major bridal magazines.
