Baby wipes should be able to take the stain out, and the beads shouldnt be a problem… if you can’t find a match locally, I wouldnt be surprised if the shop can order  some of the original beads from the manufacturer.  I’d give them a call, and ask the alterations department.

I second the baby wipes. I worked at a bridal store and we used them all the time for dirty spots.

@MissNoodles:  I never even thought of that! I bought a dress on ebay that has some stains along the hem, and since I didn’t notice them immediately I couldn’t return it. I even happen to have a baby right now. Bonus!

I would get it professionally cleaned. I got a sample too. It was a sooooo dirty! Dirt all over the bottom, under the armpits, on the pickups. Getting it cleaned really does wonders.

Mine was missing a few beads on the top too. A good seamstress can do anything. Depending upon your alteration/cleaning needs it should be $300-500 total.
