I find saris very beautiful and feminine and I really want to buy one and wear one but I don't know of people of the Indian culture would find it offensive or flattering that someone not from their culture admire their sari. My boyfriend of Indian and he let me know that it'd be fine but I don't know if he's just saying that because he is my boyfriend.

Well, he did tell you he is fine with it. I have also seen many western women wear saris when they are getting married to their Indian husbands. I think Indian people in general will be very appreciative of your interest for their culture. The people who are more likely to be offended are teenage liberal white girls on Tumblr... But screw them.
I think the whole "cultural appropriation" thing is such bullshit anyway. I mean, I'm Scottish and I'm not gonna get all offended and mad if I see a black dude wearing a kilt. :P0

It's fine. My friend wore a lehenga saree at my sister's wedding.
I don't know If it is the same case with your boyfriend , but in my family we have lot of elderlies /most are men. So she had to make sure she wore it without revealing too much skin.0
