You could always use mrsginmay’s idea, but with styrofoam.  I know Home Depot sells a 4×8 sheet for only a few bucks.  With that said though, are you or your FH basketball fans?  If so, you could totally play them up even!

Many basketball nets fold up against the backboard. Have you checked to see if that is the situation with your venue? It would make it much easier to cover with a flat pice of foamcore painted and decorated in the style of your wedding.

If not, you could hang ribbons from the rim- just fold the ribbon in half and pull the loose two end through the loop. Let the ribbons hand or pull them to the side where you have placed something taller like a column, section of a log etc. It would make a cute backdrop for picture taking,

You could also hang a sheer fabric from the ceiling , and thread it through the hope, then either gracefully puddle on the floor, or attach it to the back of a loveseat placed under the net or a table that can be used for gifts etc.

 Or you could DIY a monogrammmed banner and hang that from the rim. Given that you can’t use tape etc, you would need to add little fabric ties to the top of the banner.
