Before you leave:
Do lat pull downs, rows, pushups, and pull ups (if you have the equipment) from home every other day.
Try to see if the alterations person can fix that (especially if it's too tight around the bust or if it's uncomfortable).
Loosen your corset bra or consider losing it in favor of boob tape (especially if there's a bit of padding that you don't need, because bulk in the front can make it tighter in the back).
At the resort:
See if the spa has a body wrap that specializes in taking off inches. They're not long term solutions, but some of them will take off an inch in a pinch by tightening the skin in your trouble areas.
Day of the Wedding:
Do any arm, shoulder, and upper back exercises you can with the equipment you have (don't have weights with you? Use a waterbottle in each hand!). Muscle training the day of a big event pumps blood into the muscles and makes you appear more toned.
Don't stress (as everyone else mentioned, you look great now).
Consider wearing a pashmina for some of your pictures.
Have your new husband put his arm around you! It covers the top of your back, and has the added bonus of getting to spend a few minutes in your lover's arms.

Lady DJ's got the right idea. While I think it is just skin, and possibly the dress not pulled up correctly the best thing to do is push-ups/plank, or lat pull-downs.
However, if you don't own a machine or have no time for the gym, then push-ups it is. Don't do excessive amounts (that's pointless) try for 3 sets of 12 (real push-ups) or start with 3 sets of 8 and work your way up. And start with a plank for 30 seconds, then work your way up to 1 min, 1.30, 2 etc.
If you have a bar at home, you can also do bent-over rows. This will strengthen your shoulders, back, core and legs. It's one of those complex movements.
Either way, I think you already look absolutely GORGEOUS in your dress ...
