maybe decorate the walls with free standing curtains? make the pvc stands and hang fabric. it will be a little pricey but it could work,

I second cr6zy. The pvc needed is fairly cheap and easy to set up, it’s the fabric that can get pricey. But since you want something light, maybe a tulle or see-through fabric would work for you? Also maybe add in some Chinese folding screens in a light color to help disguise areas. Lots of light banisters and flowers will add color and romance. Focus on the tables, and make them unique to detract from the space. Scattering white rose petals on the floor is another idea.

Your not marrying the room. Don’t focus on the little stuff and just enjoy your day. the room makes no difference and most will not remember the room.

I would talk to the banquet manager and see what other couples have done in the space.  Maybe something with lighting or linens could give it a fresher feel?  (I.e. an all white wedding with cool lamps, etc.)  Or ask your florist for ideas as they are usually creative.

I would second the fabric draping. You also might want to think about using a ton of candles to add light and romance.

Let us see pictures to better help you, but just off the top of my head fabric draping and tons of uplighting.
