@liliangrae:100$ only covers the price of the text, no art.

Look for an amateur just starting out.

First of all, just because you aren’t Jewish doesn’t mean your ketubah can’t be meaningful. My husband and I (interfaith couple) wrote our own ketubah with our personal vows. Combined with the beautiful artwork it is a wonderful reminder hanging on our wall of our wedding and our vows to one another.

If you truly believe the ketubah is meaningless and something you don’t want to throw money away on, I suggest you put your foot down and just don’t get one. Why waste the $100?

The least expensive ketubot will be preprinted, not customized at all, very plain, and likely to be more “standard text” and will be the least likely to have meaning to you… If you’re going to get a ketubah at all, I would recommend going a different route by writing your own text and making it really personal to you as a couple.

Have you tried Etsy? Otherwise, a quick google search will yield quite a few sites that have <$100 options – most are very “traditional” looking and if you want to customize one, it adds like $75 to the total prce.

@liliangrae. The ketubah you went with is beautiful, my Fiance and I are also an interfaith couple and we are in the process of looking for a ketubah. I guess I am going to have to consider etsy now. Congratulations!

@liliangrae: You’re welcome! 🙂 Eventually I will be in the same interfaith marriage boat as you guys and this is probably the route I’m going to go as well. 🙂

Anyone else find some cheaper ones?

After long back and forths, I’ve decided to write one myself. (No, really.)

All the ones I’ve found that I like are $300 🙁  insanity!  Still holding out for something cheaper but starting to doubt that it will come along.
