I've heard about these two terms, but somehow the more I read about them, the more confused I become. How to decide that one thing is appreciation and not appropriation, and vice versa? For example, let's say I wanted to get married. My fiance and I loved Chinese culture so much that we wanted our wedding to have ancient Chinese theme. The decoration would be like that of a xianxia drama and we would be wearing hanfu. However, we weren't Chinese, we didn't live in China, and none of our family was of Chinese descent. Would that be a cultural appropriation because we were not Chinese, or cultural appreciation because we were such big fans of the culture?
