i need to dye satin

HELP! I bought a really, really expensive dress here in Germany. It's very elegant, black, satin, and I haven't had a chance to wear it. I had put it in a laundry basket with some other clothes (to be put away), and I placed a bottle of bleach on top of the laundry. Anyways, the bottle leaked and now I have bleach spots (big ones) on my black satin dress. I live in Europe and I need to know how to fix this. My fiance and I are coming home in June to get married, and he want's to take me to see wicked on broadway in chicago and this dress is perfect for it. Please help me!

If it's black, I would try magic marker...or even india ink.

Oh, there are blacks and then there are different blacks. I would take the dress to a professional dyer and get his/her opinion. Cheaper in the long run to get it done properly than to try and fix another screw-up.
