What about sheer fabric draping – hard to describe what I’m thinking but start at the corner and then have it drape every foot or so then bring it back up to the ceiling then have it drape again a foot later and so on all around the room?

Do you have engagement photos or family pictures that you can display? You could get some inexpensive frames (or borrow!!) and hang them up around the room.

My reception room walls are simmilar (it was free).  Ugly cinder block white walls.  I got some sheer gossamer fabric (stumps party. com for $20ish) in my colors and am going to drape it along the walls to dress it up a little more.  I’m having mine draped from the top of the ceiling down to the floor and pinched in the middle kind of like drapes along one wall to make it look a little nicer.  Maybe you could do something similar but on the side of an alter (if your having one) drape fabric like gossamer or tulle from the ceiling to the floor (Also kind of depends what wall your going to have as your main area for the ceremony).  Or if you know anyone with a garden trellis or arch (can rent arch at Hobby Lobby) I’ve seen lots of people use those as a nice background against a plain wall to dress up the ceremony a little bit.  If these options don’t do it for you hanging engagment pics would be cute like veggie rachel suggested.  Good luck in whatever you decide.  I’m sure you can make it look cute with some DIY inspiration and help.  You’d be amazed at what you can make look pretty.

Sometimes the best way to deal with a feature you don’t like is to not draw attention to it. Plain white walls are not necessarily a negative.

I would just draw attention to the other details in your decor.
