Convertible dresses? Tailors who can convert a wedding gown

My fiance and I do Swing Dance and are hoping to have a two-part 1st dance that begins with a formal waltz and then turns into a swing dance where perhaps we do a few fun lifts. Wondering if anyone has tried to turn a premade wedding dress into a convertible one where the formal skirt comes off to reveal shorter one underneath. Any help with this would be appreciated.
