Is it offensive for foreigners to wear Indian clothing?

Anonymous
We're Korean-Filipino.

My brother got transferred to India in his line of work about 5 years ago, and now he's engaged to a woman there and they're getting married next year. (No exact date due to COVID).

I've never been to India but I've met my future SIL's family (parents and siblings) via video call and they seem like really nice people. I get along with her youngest sister very well, who suggested we shop for sarees together when I arrive.

I'm excited but also kinda nervous at the same time about offending people there primarily because I see a lot of people getting hate on social media for wearing cultural clothes that's not their own culture.

Is it okay? Or should I stick to western gowns instead?
